    Requisite or Related APARs:
    
      The PTF for APAR VM66206 provides infrastructure support in
      z/VM V6.4 and V7.1 for the z15 server, and z/VM Dynamic
      Crypto support. The PTFs for this APAR and VM66206 must be
      installed on all the members of an SSI cluster before any
      member will be running on the z15 or LinuxONE III servers.
    
      In addition, the PTF for APAR VM65976 provides infrastructure
      support for ESA/390-compatibility mode within z/VM V6.4, and
      must be installed on all members of an SSI cluster before any
      z/VM V6.4 member of the cluster is run on an IBM z15 or
      LinuxONE III server.
    
      With the available PTF for APAR PI99085, the z/VM V6.4 and
      V7.1 TCP/IP stack and NETSTAT OSAINFO command have been
      updated to provide support for:
        - OSA-Express7s GbE
        - OSA-Express7S 10GbE
        - OSA-Express7S 25GbE
        - OSA-Express7s 1000BASE-T
    
    In addition, support is added for installation of z/VM V6.4 and
    V7.1 using a USB flash drive.
    
    The following publications are updated.
    
    In z/VM: CP Commands and Utilities, SC24-6268-04, the
    following CP commands have been updated:
    - QUERY CRYPTO command
    - QUERY VIRTUAL CRYPTO command
    - SET SVC76 command
    
    In z/VM: CP Planning and Administration, SC24-6271-03, the

    In z/VM: Performance, SC24-6301-04, the following CP monitor
    records have been updated:
    - D1R4 MRMTRSYS: Added field  MTRSYS_MAXPU.
    - D1R15 MRMTRUSR: Added CPNC and CPVC.
    - D4R2 MRUSELOF: Added new simulation counts.
    - D4R3 MRUSEACT: Added new simulation counts.
