Issue/Introduction

4 LPARS in MIM complex(SYS1,SYS2,SYS3,SYS4)

SYS1 & SYS2 are in PROD sysplex

SYS3 & SYS4 are in TEST sysplex.

Recently we  used FDRPAS to move all our DASD storage to different DASD raids and unit addresses.

IPLed the SYS3 & SYS4 LPARS 

The D FILES command in SYS3 & SYS4 show the correct unit address

However, the same command in SYS1 & SYS2 continue to show the old unit addresses that no longer exist

Component : MIM

Resolution

The invalid unit reference is only witnessed with a DISPLAY FILES command and is not impacting functionality. An IPL of the system corrects the display.

The correct unit reference will be witnessed with a DISPLAY IO command.

An internal story has been created in our backlog to take this on as an internal research item as time allows. Any findings that warrant a solution will be published as part of regular product updates.
