z/VM V6R4 was announced on October 25, 2016 with a planned availability date of November 11, 2016. Toleration fixes have been made available beforehand for zSecure Manager for RACF z/VM 1.11.1 and 1.11.2 and for zSecure for z/OS 2.1.0, 2.1.1, and 2.2.0.
IBM Security zSecure Manager for RACF z/VM helps you protect your z/VM systems. You can feed the data collected by its zSecure Collect for z/VM (CKVCOLL) component into IBM Security zSecure Admin and zSecure Audit. This allows comprehensive analysis including both z/OS and z/VM systems.
APAR VM65211 provides PTFs UV61311 and UV61312 for zSecure Manager for RACF z/VM 1.11.1 and 1.11.2, respectively.
APAR OA51547 provides PTFs UA83269, UA83270, and UZ83271 for zSecure for z/OS 2.1.0, 2.1.1, and 2.2.0, respectively.
Note that zSecure for z/OS 2.2.1 was announced on October 25, 2016 with a planned availability date of December 9, 2016 and will provide the same support in the base.
These fixes prevent a.o. the following:
* Message CKV157I being issued by zSecure Collect for z/VM, stating that the z/VM V6R4 release is not supported
* Incorrect audit concerns that z/VM releases V5R4 and V6R2 would no longer be supported based on earlier End Of Service dates that have been superseded
