Software Service Levels

THIS SECTION CONTAINS THE MINIMUM REQUIRED SOFTWARE PRODUCT LEVELS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THIS DEVICE. 5. 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. 4. 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. 3. 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. 2. 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. 1. 11/07/12 The following z/VM 5.4.0 AND 6.1.0 service is available in support of the IBM zEnterprise 114 machine: - Required zEnterprise 196 processor compatibility support with the PTF for APARs VM64879, VM64774, VM64881, and VM64947. Note: VM64879 is also required when using FCP subchannels - 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. - Support within z/VM monitor data for CPU idle time changes - 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 114 with the PTF for APAR VM64799 and VM64940 - Performance ToolKit support of the zEnterprise 114 with the PTF for APAR VM64820 and VM64931. - VMHCD support of the zEnterprise 114 with the PTF for APAR VM64672 and VM64856 - VMHCM support of the zEnterprise 114 with the PTF for APAR VM64747 and VM64880 - z/VM EREP support of the zEnterprise 114 with the PTF for APAR VM64807 and VM64928 - HLASM support of new instructions for the zEnterprise 196 with the PTF for APAR PK97799. z/VM 6.1 support for the z114 Unified Resource Manager is included with the PTFs for APARs VM64822, VM64904, VM64917, and VM64956. Prior to installing these APARs, RSU 6103 must be applied to z/VM 6.1. Foradditional details and helpful information, please see the following web site: http://www.vm.ibm.com/service/vmrequrm.html
