Today I want to point you to z/VSE's hot service news on the z/VSE service and support web pages.
Upload of customer data requires IBM Id
Starting May 25th, upload of customer material for problem determination changes. Before upload of material, all customers must identify with their IBM Id. Furthermore plain FTP server for manual data upload will be discontinued. Instead FTPS (FTP over TLS) encryption will be enforced to meet legal requirements. For more details see the Enhanced Customer Data Repository (ECuRep) web page.
Tape delivery in Shopz will be discontinued
As stated in the IBM Software Announcement 218-118 dated March 6, 2018, on July 1, 2018, delivery of PTFs for z/OS, z/VM, and z/VSE on tape is planned to be discontinued with an effective date of July 16, 2018.
