Today I want to remind our z/VSE 5.1 users, that it is time to move to z/VSE 5.2 or z/VSE 6.1 to stay in a supported environment.
z/VSE 5.1 service will end June 30, 2016.
You have two options:
Besides new functionality and new versions / releases of CICS TS for z/VSE, TCP/IP for z/VSE and IPv6/VSE, z/VSE 6.1 also provides a new pricing option - the Migration Pricing Option (MPO).
If you want to use IBM TCP/IP for z/VSE 2.1 on z/VSE 6.1, you need a new licence. Therefore please request a new license key. See my related blog entry.
More information about z/VSE 6.1 is here.
We gathered some hints & tips for migration in the z/VSE Migration document - here.
