Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    All HCD users with a need to define and
    activate a 3906 or 3907 processor.
    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    For z/OS V2R1, V2R2 and V2R3, this APAR offers:
    Dynamic activate for standalone coupling facilities
    You can use a new dynamic activate function of HCD
    to remotely activate hardware-only changes on
    processors not running an operating system that
    supports HCD. For example: a processor running only
    coupling facilities.
    .
    For z/OS V1R13, V2R1, V2R2 and V2R3, this APAR offers:
    Support of new PCIe function - NVMe:
    The processor supports a new PCIe function type
    called NVMe which provides high bandwidth and low
    latency access for non-volatile memory.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    To define and activate all capabilities,
    maintain the new hardware definitions on a
    z/OS 2.1 system or higher with OA54912
    installed and only perform software
    activates (with hardware validation) on
    lower level systems.
    
    Pre-requisite for the new support is the
    IOCP APAR OA55404 and IOS APAR OA53952.
    
    PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
    The new features for 3906 and 3907 processors
    are now supported.
