We have had that problem as well, since we went from V3R7 (CA version
to V4R3 (CA version V3R2).  We received from IBM some PTF's to fix this
I do not recall what they were, but the scenario was the same as what John
spoke of:
We varied off, and deleted the device description, and it would not
re-create.  The PTF's
had a program to call,  But I think it required an IPL to activate one of
the PTF's.

I have another problem that IBM is not able to fix. It deals with NT
workstations and
HP DeskJet printers, not able to run a printer session.  After Several
rounds of
 "Reinstall CA" and "Reinstall the printer drivers", I gave up.  This
problem cropped
 up early last year, but a service pack fixed it.  Now that we are on V4R3
(CA V3R2)
it has popped back up.
