The problem appeared immediately after I applied SI70970 and went away as soon as I removed that PTF. At this point IBM has no clue what's actually happening. The suspect the issue is related to http2.

I only have a single partition. I've never had serious trouble with test PTFs before, but none have ever involved applying a known bad PTF.

I have SI70970 in a savf status, waiting to be applied.
It hasn't made it officially to IBM's V7R3 defective PTF list, last updated 10/29/2019.

1) Pay close attention to the activation and special instructions.
2) Apply to a test or playground LPAR first, if possible.

I've been burned in the past by some test PTFs, needed an IPL to resolve issue with the PTF apply.
