RE: How to submit an APAR



fixed

Dare:
Thanks.  I have registered, but per usual IBM, my registration will be
processed in TWO DAYS!!!  Glad the internet has allowed IBM to be more
efficient.  Wonder if they have any computer systems over there, or if
someone is going to manually review my info?   TWO DAYS.... What a joke!

Try this but you have to register your system and company with IBM. You
get a user id and password.
