ARYSRV Task Tolerate w/o Abending when QUALSYS Scan is Run

Reference PMR 30417.082.000.  The QUALSYS Team did a test and this caused the ARY started task to abend. Automations restarted the task and we were good. As the oncall person, it would be BEST if the task would not fail. We are running multiple instances of the task across multiple LPARs. IBM indicated they can enhance the server to filer all incoming request and ignore requests that are tool large of obviously incorrect.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Customers who have oncall support across multiple lpars.
How should it work?

Permit the started task to remain up when penetration testing is being conducted.

Idea Priority Medium
Priority Justification As the oncall person, I have to respond to abends after hours. This could be a bad night for the oncall person if penetration testing is being done across multiple LPARs. It's not really a problem, just bad coding.
