APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
A load source I/O Processor (IOP) dump does not complete
successfully when the load source disk unit has a block size of
4096, such as a FlashSystem 840 volume, and is attached via a
6B25 virtual Fibre Channel client adapter.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA47200 :
-----------------------------
The load source dump code for the virtual Fibre Channel client
does not correctly handle the last portion of dump data if it
does not end on a page boundary and the target disk unit has a
4K block size. This causes the device to reject the final write
of the dump data with a malformed command descriptor error. The
size of the final block of data will be adjusted to correctly
end on a page boundary.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA47200 :
--------------------------------
None.
