Sorry for the delay. Again a service blog entry. I waited for the web page update.
There is a new Recommended Service Level (RSL) for z/VSE 4.3.1 and 5.1.2 available. The cutoff for the RSLs were October 31, 2013.
You may upgrade via Fast Service Upgrade to z/VSE 5.1.2 and then to the new RSL level - or to the latest 5.1.1 RSL and then the 5.1.2 RSL. In the latter case the SIR command output will still show 5.1.1.
An RSL is a preventive service offering for z/VSE. This service offering fills the gap between z/VSE Refresh levels and the "High Impact or Pervasive APAR" (HIPER) service provided via "Preventive Service Planning" (PSP) buckets. An RSL consists of a list of ALL APAR/PTF numbers, which are available at specific cutoff dates. RSLs are updated more frequently than refreshes and contain ALL available service, not only the HIPER service.
The link to the RSL information is here.
