APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
The OPS console LAN adapter chosen by the LIC auto select code
for Power8 and Power9 systems isn't ideal. When a 2CE3 LAN
adapter in the system is in slot C5 and a 576F LAN adapter in
C11. The adapter in C5 is chosen and the adapter in C11 would be
a better choice.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA47133' :
-------------------------------
The OPS console LAN adapter searches from the lowest slot to the
highest slot. For the Power8 and Power9 systems it would be
better to search from the highest to lowest slot.
The OPS console LIC code was changed to search from the highest
to lowest slot on Power8 and Power9 systems.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA47133' :

None.
