With this and the next blog entries I will provide some more details about the key functions of z/VSE 5.2.
Today some details about the "Tape-less installation" (install from DVD).
Starting with z/VSE 5.2, installation of z/VSE from a bootable installation disk is supported, for both LPAR and z/VM guest environments. Initial installation from a physical tape is still supported.
z/VSE provides utilities to create a bootable installation disk. The layout of the installation disk is identical no matter in which environment it was created.
The installation disk
The files that are needed to create the installation disk are available on DVD, or from the internet (orderable from Shopz).
Mor details are in the z/VSE 5.2 Installation book. z/VSE 5.2 books can be download from our z/VS
