Overview

Top rule

IBM Z NetView 6.4 provides automation, and network and systems management to address your requirements for business agility on IBM Z. Key capabilities and advanced functions include networking and automation, enhanced enterprise integration, and client time-to-value. System and network automation is provided by IBM Z NetView and addresses the continued drive for increased IT workload and automation. Because network requirements are ever-increasing, largely because of mobile phones, the need for a robust network management solution becomes increasingly important.

IBM Z NetView 6.4 continues to provide a modernized user experience through the integration of technologies that may aid in productivity. This is accomplished by introducing three new IBM Z NetView plug-ins for Zowe CLI:

  • Base plug-in enables clients to access core NetView information and issue most NetView commands. The specific categories of data are:
    • Canzlog messages
    • Task utilization information
    • List of NetView domains to which commands can be sent
    • Authentication to NetView through the NetView REST Server

    Note: You must download this plug-in if you want to use the network and automation plug-ins.

  • Automation plug-in enables you to manage automation table members or statements:
    • Activate an automation table member.
    • Download an automation table member.
    • List active automation tables.
    • Run a simulated test of an automation table statement.
    • Upload an automation table statement.
    • Validate an automation table member.
  • Network plug-in enables you to monitor your network:
    • Display distributed DVIPA (DDVIPA) health information.
    • Display distributed DVIPA (DDVIPA) statistics.

IBM Z NetView 6.4 provides the following additional enhancements:

  • Display of messages queued on attended and automated operator tasks. This enables the user to see what is queued up on a task behind a process that is not completing, thus allowing the user to make an informed decision on whether to recycle, stop, or reset the task.
  • Support for z/OS symbol names of up to 16 characters with a maximum substitution text of up to 44 characters (including spaces), as defined by z/OS. The following areas have been enhanced for this support:
    • Some configuration samples, such as CxxSTGEN, CNMSTUSR, and CNMPOLCY
    • PIPE SUBSYM stage
  • Network management enhancements:
    • IBM z/OS V2.5 Communications Server enhanced the z/OS Encryption Readiness Technology (zERT) function to provide enforcement of network encryption standards. The zERT policy-based enforcement (zERT enforcement) solution allows policy-based rules that describe different levels of cryptographic protection along with optional actions to take when TCP connections match those rules. zERT enforcement actions enable immediate notification through messages, auditing through SMF records, and automatic connection termination when questionable or unacceptable cryptographic protection is detected. IBM Z NetView catches the syslogd and SMF record notifications and generates a message upon which users can automate an action.
    • The SNMP requirement is removed for:
      • Displaying of interfaces using Discovery Manager
      • Packet trace

      This enhancement provides time to value because SNMP no longer needs to be configured for this function.

    • The NVSNMP command support for SNMPv3 allows additional security parameters to be issued. SNMPv3 requires a username, and authentication and encryption can optionally be specified.
  • Security
    • The use of encrypted data sets, as supported by DFSMS and IBM z/OS Integrated Cryptographic Service Facility (ICSF). IBM Z NetView supports encrypted:
      • Partitioned data sets extended (PDSEs), such as DSIPARM and Canzlog archive data sets
      • VSAM data sets, such as DSILOGP/DSILOGS
    • Ability to prevent the echoing, logging, and tracing of sensitive information about a command. See the CNMSELTE DSIPARM member.
  • NetView Enterprise Management Agent
    • Support is provided for Extended Access Volume usage for history performance information. The IBM Z NetView Enterprise Management Agent now includes the use of the OMEGAMON® persistent data store (PDS V2) large file setup for history information. This increases the amount of information that can be stored and retrieved from history to populate product workspaces.

The following functions are no longer available in IBM Z NetView 6.4:

  • NetView Web Services Gateway (SOAP Server)
  • SNA Topology Manager
  • The NetView task DSIWBTSK that provided support for the NetView Web Application Server
  • Correlation Engine
  • MultiSystem Manager support
  • SECOPTS.AUTHCHK.TARGETID command authorization security option

IBM recommends internet delivery. However, if you still require physical media, you can choose DVD.

Many products can be ordered in ServerPac the month following their availability in CBPDO. z/OS can be ordered through CBPDO and ServerPac on the planned availability date. Many products will also be orderable in a ServerPac without also having to order the z/OS operating system or subsystem.

Shopz and CFSW will determine the eligibility based on product requisite checking. For more details on the ServerPac, go to the Help section on the Shopz website.

Production of software product orders will begin on the planned availability date.

  • CBPDO shipments will begin within 3 business days after the planned availability date.
  • ServerPac availability and shipments will begin within 3 - 4 weeks after the planned availability date due to additional customization and data input verification.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.

Sub-capacity charges for AWLC, AEWLC, CMLC, zNALC, VWLC, EWLC, and MWLC products

Sub-capacity charges for eligible products are based on product LPAR utilization capacity. Product LPAR utilization capacity for a sub-capacity product is the highest number of MSUs utilized by the combined LPARs in which the product runs concurrently during a reporting period. The number of MSUs is based on the highest observed rolling 4-hour average utilization used by the combination of the relevant LPARs during the reporting period.

Sub-capacity charges terms and conditions

IBM Z software charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible sub-capacity products apply when z/OS, z/TPF, or z/VSE® is running in z/Architecture® (64-bit) mode on an IBM Z, no other MVS-based, TPF-based, or VSE-based operating system respectively is licensed to that server, and the required information is provided by the client in accordance with the applicable terms.

Sub-capacity charges for a sub-capacity product are based on the utilization of the LPARs where/when the product executes. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for sub-capacity products, the client is required to:

  • Sign and abide by the terms of one of the following:
    • Attachment for IBM System z® Advanced Workload License Charges (Z125-8538)
    • Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (Z125-8755)
    • Attachment for IBM Country Multiplex Pricing (Z126-6965)
    • Attachment for zNALC License Charges on IBM System z (Z125-7454)
    • Attachment for IBM System z Workload License Charges (Z125-6516)
    • Attachment for EWLC, TWLC, zELC, and z/OS.e License Charges (Z125-6587)
    • Attachment for IBM System z Midrange Workload License Charges (Z125-7452)
  • Required service will be listed on the IBM Z software pricing website.
  • Collect SMF or SCRT89 data as required by the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool. Retain the collected data for a period of not less than six months.
  • Use the IBM provided Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool to process the collected SMF or SCRT89 data. The Sub-Capacity Report produced by the tool is used to determine required license capacity for the sub-capacity products. Required license capacity is determined based on the largest MSU value of a sub-capacity product running concurrently in all LPARs during the reporting period. IBM reserves the right to request the system data that supports these product-defined capacity values for a period of up to six months after the data was collected.
  • Provide an initial Sub-Capacity Report to begin to receive the benefits of less than full machine capacity charges. Sub-capacity charging will follow submission of a Sub-Capacity Report. There will be no retroactive application of sub-capacity charges.
  • Submit Sub-Capacity Reports monthly between the second and ninth day of the month after the reporting period.
  • Submit Sub-Capacity Reports for all sub-capacity products with complete data for the entire reporting period through the method specified on the IBM Z software pricing website.

    Sub-Capacity Reports that reflect a changed product defined capacity will be considered to be orders placed by the client without further action on the client's part, and IBM is authorized to make any resulting billing increase or decrease, including the ordering of any necessary new licenses. To discontinue licenses, move licenses between machines, report a hardware model upgrade, or enable or disable product features, the client must contact IBM or their IBM Business Partner.

  • Configure the machine to send weekly Transmit System Availability Data (TSAD) to IBM through the IBM Z Remote Support Facility (RSF). If the machine cannot connect through the RSF, provide this TSAD through an alternate means documented in the SCRT Users Guide (SG24-6522) publication on the IBM Z software pricing website.
