Many z/VSE users run their systems in z/VM guests. Therefore I want to remind you, that z/VM 6.2 end of service is June 30, 2017. Please migrate to z/VM 6.4 to stay in a supported environment. You can find the end of service dates for z/VM releases here . There you will also see, that z/VM 5.4 and z/VM 6.3 end of service is planned for December 31, 2017. So it's time to plan for a z/VM 6.4 migration too.
Last October I had a blog entry about today's subject, see here . SCRT (Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool) is available as classic and Java version. If you are using SCRT to report your MSU usage, you are already aware about the two versions. This blog entry is a reminder, that the classic version will be replaced by the Java version in October 2017 . That is starting with the November reporting, you have to use the Java version. Reports from the classic version will then no longer be accepted.
