Release reservation made on tape drive with a D-M IPL
When a D M IPL is done to start an IBM i lpar from tape and the system is powered down again from within SST (before anything is installed), the reservation made on the tape drive does not get released. In order to be able to use the same drive to start another lpar the tape library will have to be rebooted. Request is to have to code changed to release the reservation during the powerdown process.
