APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Upon running PowerHA commands an HAE9898 is encountered: The IBM
PowerHA SystemMirror for i licensed program is missing required
program temporary fixes (PTFs).  Install the required PTFs and
try the request again.  If the problem persists, contact your
service provider for further assistance.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE71480 :
-----------------------------
The HAE9898 indicating required fixes are not applied is no
longer encountered.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE71480 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE71270 :
-----------------------------------------------
When performing the command CHGASPCPYD to update a password with
15 characters, MSGHAE2024 is encountered. If passwords using 14
or less characters are used, there is no error.

Code is being enhanced to allow for passwords up to 16
characters.

Work around: Do not use a 15 or 16 character password until the
PTF associated with this APAR is applied. A password of 14
characters or less can be used.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE71270 :
-----------------------------
PowerHA SystemMirror for i has been corrected to allow for
DS8000 passwords up to 16 characters long

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE71270 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE70374 :
-----------------------------------------------
When initiating a STRASPSSN from an interactive job on the
flashcopy node with a job using a CCSID other than 37, it could
cause PowerHA to send a script to storage which results in
CMMCI9015E (The value "&" for parameter -delim is not formatted
correctly.)

PowerHA code will be enhanced to ensure that scripting is
performed with the proper CCSID.

Work around: Either change local flash node job to use CCSID 37,
or issue STRASPSSN from the flashcopy source node which will
force PowerHA to run the command remotely on the flash node, but
will do so through job QHASVR and that job uses CCSID 37 by
default.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE70374 :
-----------------------------
PowerHA SystemMirror for i has been corrected to fix the
problem.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE70374 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE69755 :
-----------------------------------------------
DSPASPSSN shows the state of mirroring as ACTIVE, however when
checking the actual status of mirroring, in this case by using
GEOSTAT, it was found that mirroring was actually suspended.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE69755 :
-----------------------------
PowerHA SystemMirror for i has been corrected to fix the problem

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE69755 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


On each node in the cluster, end clustering, apply the fix, and then
restart clustering. It is not necessary to update all nodes at the same
time, however, any node without the fix may continue to be a potential
source of the problem.

********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI68583 :
=================================================

On each node in the cluster, end clustering, apply the fix, and then
start clustering.  It is not necessary to update all nodes at the same
time, however, any node without the fix will continue to be a potential
source of the problem.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
