Comments

  • This PTF is in support of FlashCopy onto Global Mirror
    primaries on the D/T2107 storage system.
    
    When enabled, Global Mirror primary volumes will be considered
    capable of becoming FlashCopy target volumes.
    
    To enable this support, you must install the appropriate PTF for
    this APAR OA57173 along with all other PTFs required during the
    installation of OA57173 PTF. After the installation is
    successful, to activate the function, add this keyword,
    ENABLE(FLASHCOPYTOGM) in DEVSUPxx PARMLIB member followed by a
    console command SET DEVSUP=xx, or use this console command,
    F DEVMAN,ENABLE(FLASHCOPYTOGM) for the life of that IPL. Refer
    to ++HOLD(DOC) for further details.
    
    
    Exploitation of this new function on the D/T2107 storage
    subsystem requires this PTF and a microcode (LMC) upgrade.  For
    minimum microcode levels and current maintenance required to
    exploit this new function, refer to the What's new section of
    the DS8000 knowledge center which can be located by using the
    following website:
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ST5GLJ
    Select version 8.5.4
    Select What's new
    Or, you can contact IBM Hardware support for the current
    D/T2107 LMC.
    Installation of this PTF will preserve existing function when
    run with existing supported LMC.
