Software Service Levels

THIS SECTION CONTAINS THE MINIMUM REQUIRED SOFTWARE PRODUCT LEVELS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THIS DEVICE. 4. 14/11/13 Installations using the Unified Resource Manager for integrated systems management of z/VM should apply z/VM 6.2 APAR VM65374 prior to applying bundle 25 for driver D15 (zEC12 / zBC12). The combination of z/VM APAR and firmware bundle allows a cloned z/VM image to properly join an ensemble. The z/VM APAR alerts the operator of the need for an IPL when a cloned image attempts to join an ensemble. This operator notification will not occur when applying the firmware bundle prior to the z/VM APAR. 3. 14/07/31 z/VM 6.3 support for guest exploitation of RoCE and zEDC adapters is provided with the PTF for APAR VM65417. z/VM support is disabled by default and must not be enabled until driver 15 bundle 21 has been applied. Once the pre-requisite bundle is applied, see http://www.vm.ibm.com/zvm630/apars.html for details on enabling and configuring the z/VM support. The following additional service is also required: z/VM 6.3 CMS - APAR VM65437 z/VM 6.3 TCP/IP - APAR PI20509 z/VM 6.3 DVF - APAR VM65572 z/OS 2.1 - APAR OA44482 z/OS 2.1 - APAR OA43256 2. 14/06/03 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 18 for driver D15 (zEC12 / zBC12) 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. 1. 13/07/23 The following z/VM 5.4.0, 6.2.0, and 6.3.0 service is available in support of the IBM zEnterprise EC12 and zEnterprise BC12 machines: - Guest exploitation of the zEC12 and zBC12 at the level of zEnterprise 196 and z114 functionality is provided with the PTF for APAR VM65007 (5.4 and 6.2 only, in base of z/VM 6.3). - When installing z/VM 5.4 and 6.2 on a zEC12 or zBC12, the applicable PTF should be applied as part of the install process - Exploitation of selected functions of the zEC12 and zBC12 include: - Support for the crypto Express4S adapter. Crypto Express4S can be configured in one of three ways using the Hardware Management Console (HMC) panels: - 2877 IBM Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) coprocessor - 2878 IBM Enterprise Public-Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS) #11 (EP11) coprocessor - See the ZOS2827 subset of the 2827DEVICE PSP bucket for required service to ICSF for EP11 support as a guest - 2879 Accelerator - Local-TLB-Clearing Facility: The Local-TLB-Clearing Facility provides guests running on z/VM the ability to use the IPTE or IDTE instructions with the Local-Clearing Control (LC) bit on. - CPU-Measurement Counter Facility enhancement: The CPU-Measurement Counter Facility has been expanded and now has an additional Counter First Version Number and additional Counter Second Version Number. The new Counter First Version Number (2) specifies changes to the meanings of some counters in the Basic and Problem-State counter sets. The new Counter Second Version Number (3) specifies changes to the number of counters in the Extended counter set. z/VM supports all variations of these new version numbers when collecting the counters and when putting them into the monitor record. - New subchannel measurement block fields: The Interrupt-Delay Time and I/O-Priority-Delay Time fields have been added to the subchannel measurement block. 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 for the new OSA-Express5S adapters with the PTF for APAR PM83966 (z/VM 6.2 only, in base of z/VM 6.3, not applicable for z/VM 5.4). - Support for guests to obtain proper MSU information requires the PTFs for APARs VM65356 and VM65360 (z/VM 5.4 6.2, and 6.3) - z/VM IOCP support of the zEnterprise EC12 with the PTF for APAR VM65131 (z/VM 5.4, 6.2, and 6.3) - z/VM IOCP support of the zEnterprise BC12 with the PTF for APAR VM65421 (z/VM 5.4, 6.2, and 6.3) - Performance ToolKit support of the zEnterprise BC12 with the PTF for APAR VM65046 (z/VM 5.4 and 6.2 only, in the base of z/VM 6.3) - VMHCD support of the zEnterprise EC12 with the PTF for APAR VM65047 - VMHCD support of the zEnterprise BC12 with the PTF for APAR VM65236 - VMHCM support of the zEnterprise EC12 and zEnterprise BC12 with the PTF for APAR VM65239 - z/VM EREP support of the zEnterprise EC12 with the PTF for APAR VM65130 - z/VM EREP support of the zEnterprise BC12 with the PTF for APAR VM65279 - HLASM support of new instructions for the zEnterprise BC12 with the PTF for APAR PM49761 - OSA/SF support for OSA-Express4S and OSA-Express5S adapters installed within the zEnterprise EC12 and zEnterprise BC12 with the PTF for APAR OA38418
