IBM is changing the titles of System Recovery Boost feature codes 6802 and 9930 to help clear up confusion between these priced features and the base capability on the z15. No specific z15 feature codes need to be ordered to be able to use the base capabilities of System Recovery Boost. Feature codes 6802 and 9930 are required only to make use of the optional System Recovery Boost Upgrade Record, which allows the temporary activation of additional zIIP processor resources in conjunction with System Recovery Boost.

The feature code titles are changing to:

  • Feature Code 6802: SRB Upgrade Record
  • Feature Code 9930: SRB Upgrade Authorization
