1) The LIC log, at 611 pages, seems a tad large. Maybe I used an
incorrect parameter or included too much by use of wrong parameter
value. Does this need to be corrected?
Seem a reasonable size, but hopefully that size suggests the data from
the selected logs was included, rather than just the summary of all the
entries; i.e. a listing of all LIC Log entries without any data can be
somewhat informative [to see the pattern for each failure and what might
have preceded the first or each occurrence; obviously the timestamps of the
begin\end of each failure would need to be noted additionally], but the
actual list of the thirteen logs [consistent each time?] *with data* across
the time-span of the failure(s) is what is most desirable. Note: Review
the spools for any /sensitive/ data, as some logs could include some actual
data from the save; paging through the /eye-catcher/ data is generally able
to be completed fairly quick.
I can not recall the means to get a summary-with-data over a specific
date\time-range when spooling the LIC log data. I recall mostly, that
there is a 6=print against that can produce a spool-with-data against each
log; of course that is one spooled file per log.
2) Where can I send the files to allow others to see them?
Some people use dropbox; there are a variety of such places. Google
docs should be an option as well, but I am unsure if there is a fully
public access, or if authorization is made only to specific accounts [mine
is my email I post with].
I appreciate your time, as well as explaining >why< multiple SAVs

Allusion as to how possibly, not an explanation of why :-)
If I recall correctly (been well over ten years) applying cum will
almost certainly require an IPL to complete. So, no need to IPL

Applying the cumulative [and HIPers] will indeed require an IPL [perhaps
an additional implicit IPL to which there may be only limited visibility,
most notably, that the system never appears available until completion of
the final IPL].
The job log from this morning indicated a previous damaged condition.
Repairable via IOP reset. Wish I had thought that through and
performed OP reset last week when it happened. The commands are
obviously doing a lot more than is obvious, otherwise, it would seem
like a nice feature to fail at the start rather than after an hour.
Some functions just don't work that way.
I would expect that, given the required repair for the partial damage is
vary-off and vary-on, the save would have failed quite nearly immediately
upon start; I do not recall the GO SAVE opt-21 having any Vary
Configuration requests coded. Additionally, a failure for reference to the
/damaged/ device should have been explicitly about the reference to the
previously-damaged object, not a condition diagnosing an issue for which
the effect was damage; perhaps not a conspicuous difference to those less
familiar, but trust that the difference is huge and an important
So, just need a destination for these files. Maybe problem is now
"fixed" merely by me performing a proper reset.
Your call on if, where, and to whom the data is made available. I am
offering to look; not sure if anyone else would, and if not, I could look
at them sent as email attachments [preferably named in a way that clarifies
what each is; which incident and what type of data collection]
There is only a small chance I would be able to infer anything from the
set of VLogs [they are atypical of what I have had to review in the past].
The recording in this discussion the list-summary [from each occurrence; or
just one, and indication that they were the logs were the /same/ each time]
would at least be valuable in comparison with any other incidents in which
that minimal amount of information was recorded.
