Provided customer with step-by-step instructions and VMFSIM commands to correct the problem with the VMSES product table files so the installation of VM:Archiver RSU-2101 could be completed.

As indicated above you should just receive a CMS "Ready" after each command. If any of the commands fail, please stop and send us the console to review.
Assuming the commands complete successfully you should be able to complete the VM:Archiver RSU-2101 installation by reissuing these commands:
VMFSETUP ZVMA024A VMARCHIVERSFS (LINK
VMFINS INSTALL PPF ZVMA024A VMARCHIVERSFS (ADD NOMEMO ENV LU03523
VMFINS BUILD PPF ZVMA024A VMARCHIVERSFS (SERVICED
The root cause of this problem is an inconsistency in the ZVMA024A PRODPART file in the LU (Loadable Units) section where the reference to the PREREQ for the VMARCHIVERSFS component entry was initially VMARCHIVER, then change to be VMARCHIVERSFS (which is consistent with our other product PRODPART files). It is that switch that causes this problem for customers who have created a CASYS: FilePool, and therefore do not need a PPF override for installing with PPF ZVMA024A VMARCHIVERSFS.
Customers who install to minidisk (PPF ZVMA024A VMARCHIVER) or have created a PPF override for either component VMARCHIVER or VMARCHIVERSFS will *not* have this problem.
For the effected customers, those who install with PPF ZVMA024A VMARCHIVERSFS (no PPF override *and* SFS installation), the VMFSIM commands referenced in the case will update the VMSES table files to correct the entries in those tables and prevent the problem moving forward.
