>From the manual, I think SMAPP is turned on by default: "For new systems, the system-wide recovery time for access paths is 70 minutes, which is the default. If you move from a release that does not provide the SMAPP function to a release that does supports SMAPP, the system-wide recovery time for access paths is also set to 70 minutes."
