General Information

THIS SECTION CONTAINS INFORMATION THAT IS OF GENERAL INTEREST DURING DEVICE INSTALLATION. 1. YY/MM/DD NO ENTRIES


Hardware Service Levels

THIS SECTION CONTAINS INFORMATION THAT IS HARDWARE SERVICE LEVEL RELATED. 2. 12/08/07 Customers interested in exploiting the Virtual Switch HiperSockets Bridge support and are currently at driver 86 must ensure a Concurrent Driver Upgrade (CDU) is performed to the bundle 33 level of z196 driver 93. Otherwise the required firmware support will not be available after performing a CDU. 1. 11/10/14 Installations with ensemble managed z/VM 6.1 images must ensure the LOADDEV user directory statement for ZVMLXAPP has been configured correctly before attempting a Concurrent Driver Upgrade from D86 to D93. See URL below for additional details. http://www.vm.ibm.com/service/vmrequrm.html


Software Service Levels

THIS SECTION CONTAINS THE MINIMUM REQUIRED SOFTWARE PRODUCT LEVELS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THIS DEVICE. 6. 14/08/01 z/VM 6.2 APAR VM65290 corrects the output returned for the following API's to match the API's documentation: 1) VIRTUAL_NETWORK_VLAN_QUERY_STATS 2) VIRTUAL_NETWORK_VSWITCH_QUERY_EXTENDED 3) VIRTUAL_NETWORK_VSWITCH_QUERY_STATS Installations using the Unified Resource Manager for integrated systems management of z/VM must apply bundle 81z for driver D93 (z196 / z114) before applying the PTF for APAR VM65290. Applying the PTF for APAR VM65290 before the specific bundle is available will cause incorrect results, and possible failures, to occur while managing z/VM through the Unified Resource Manager. 5. 12/02/27 Ensure APAR VM65083 and Firmware driver level D93 bundle 23z have been applied before attempting to ensemble manage a z/VM 6.2 LPAR using the Unified Resource Manager. 4. 12/02/21 When Linux for System z is running as a guest of z/VM using HiperSockets connections, a kernel panic may occur on z196 and z114 when QIOASSIST is enabled is ON . The problem doesn't occur on SLES9 and RHEL4 distributions. The problem is fixed starting with: SLES10 SP4 SLES11 SP1 maintenance update, kernel Level 2.6.32.29-0.3.1 RHEL5.7 RHEL6.1 all of which are available from the Linux distribution partners. To circumvent, set QIOASSIST to OFF. 3. 12/02/01 z/VM APAR VM65055 provides a means for SMAPI administrator of an Ensemble Managed z/VM system to optionally prevent the reset of Ensemble network resources that would normally occur with a SMAPI restart. SMAPI administrators of an Ensembled Managed z/VM systems may, under some circumstances, be unconcerned with maintaining the integrity of Ensemble-owned resources upon a SMAPI restart. In such a case, a SMAPI restart without a reset of Ensemble-owned resources may be convenient. Initialization_Integrity has been added to the SMAPI server configuration file, DMSSICNF COPY, which causes SMAPI initialization processing to skip integrity checks for Ensembled-owned resources and avoid the cleanup of Ensembled-owned resources. If Initialization_Integrity is set to 0, integrity checking is avoided. 2. 10/12/17 - z/VM 6.1 support for the z196 Unified Resource Manager is included with the PTFs for APARs VM64822 and VM64904. Prior to installing these two APARs, RSU 6103 must be applied to z/VM 6.1 and driver 86E bundle 29z must be applied to the HMC and SE. With this service, z/VM management capabilities from the Unified Resource Manager are provided. For additional details and helpful information, please see the following web site: http://www.vm.ibm.com/service/vmrequrm.html 1. 10/07/30 The following z/VM 5.4.0 AND 6.1.0 service is available in support of the IBM zEnterprise 196 machine: - Required zEnterprise 196 processor compatibility support WITH THE PTF FOR APAR VM64879, VM64774 AND VM64881. - Guest exploitation of the zEnterprise 196 at the level of System z10 functionality with the PTF for APAR VM64798. - Exploitation of selected functions of the zEnterprise 196 include: - Recognize and report processing capability reduction due to customer-initiated power-saving mode or an autonomic response to environmental conditions, and reflect the change and its cause in monitor and accounting data streams. - CP Assist for Cryptographic Function (CPACF) enhancements with the PTFs for APARs VM64656 and VM64793 - Crypto Express3 enhancements with the PTF for APAR VM64656 - Support for up to 32 hipersockets with the PTF for APAR VM64672 - z/VM IOCP support of the zEnterprise 196 with the PTF for APAR VM64799 - Performance ToolKit support of the zEnterprise 196 with the PTF for APAR VM64820. - VMHCD support of the zEnterprise 196 with the PTF for APAR VM64672 - VMHCM support of the zEnterprise 196 with the PTF for APAR VM64747 - z/VM EREP support of the zEnterprise 196 with the PTF for APAR VM64807. - HLASM support of new instructions for the zEnterprise 196 with the PTF for APAR PK97799.
