Software Service Levels

THIS SECTION CONTAINS THE MINIMUM REQUIRED SOFTWARE PRODUCT LEVELS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THIS DEVICE. 1. 20/04/14 z/VM support for the IBM z15 T02 and LinuxONE III LT2: Information is divided into four topics: 1) Pre-requisite service which must be applied across a z/VM Single System Image (SSI) cluster before moving any z/VM 6.4 or 7.1 image to a z15 T02 or LinuxONE III LT2 server. 2) Required z/VM 6.4 and 7.1 service for the IBM z15 T02 and LinuxONE III LT2 servers 3) z/VM 7.1 System Recovery Boost support service 4) Additional z/VM information (1) Infrastructure support which must be installed on all members within Single System Image (SSI) cluster before any member of the cluster is IPLed on an IBM z15 T02 or LinuxONE III LT2 server: z/VM V7.1 with the PTF for APAR VM66206 z/VM V6.4 with the PTFs for APARs VM65976 and VM66206 (2) With the available PTFs for APARs VM66248, VM66321, VM66325, and VM66332 (and all required pre-requisite APARs), z/VM V6.4 and V7.1 provide support that will enable guests to exploit function supported by z/VM on IBM z15 T02 and LinuxONE III LT2 servers, which includes the following new hardware facilities: - Synchronous execution for on-chip data compression and DEFLATE conversion. - Enhanced Vector and Vector packed decimal. - Message-Security-Assist Extension 9. - Crypto Express7S adapter and cryptographic enhancements. Support for Crypto Express7S: z/VM Support for the Crypto Express7S (CEX7S) adapter is included for both shared and dedicated guest use. As with the prior crypto adapter support, the CEX7S adapter can be configured as an accelerator or as an IBM Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) coprocessor for shared or dedicated use by z/Architecture guests. When the CEX7S adapter is configured as an IBM Enterprise Public-Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS) #11 (EP11) coprocessor, the domains on the adapter can be dedicated to z/Architecture guests, but not shared. 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 25GbE. Dynamic I/O enhancements: Host dynamic I/O support is provided for managing the configuration of Crypto Express7S, OSA-Express7S OSD CHPIDs, FICON Express16SA FC and FCP CHPIDs, RoCE Express2.1, and Coupling Express LR Adapters. (3) With the available PTF for APAR VM66283, z/VM V7.1 will provide support for the IBM z15 System Recovery Boost, including: - General CPs running as subcapacity can be boosted to full for a limited time during z/VM system initialization and workload bring-up, during workload quiese and system shutdown, and during system abend processing. - Speed change status can be logged in z/VM monitor data. - Support for System Recovery Boost must be explicitly enabled in the z/VM system configuration file using the following record: FEATURES ENABLE RECOVERY_BOOST *** Warning *** When enabling or disabling System Recovery Boost in the z/VM SYSTEM CONFIG file, it is recommended to add a separate FEATURES statement on a new line rather than include RECOVERY_BOOST on an existing FEATURES line. This will avoid issues with existing FEATURES statements when IPLing CPLOAD MODULES which do not include System Recovery Boost support. - z/VM System Recovery Boost support primarily benefits the z/VSE and z/TPF guest environments. (4) Migrating z/VM to the IBM z15 T02 and LinuxONE III LT2 servers: If you are upgrading to an IBM z15 T02 or LinuxONE III LT2 server from a z13 / z13s / LinuxONE Emperor / LinuxONE Rockhopper or earlier server, you MUST upgrade the Stand Alone Program Loader (SAPL), or else you won't be able to IPL z/VM. Refer to the red alert at the following URL: http://www.vm.ibm.com/service/redalert/#SAPLZ14 issued December 13, 2017 for more information. Installing z/VM on the IBM z15 T02 and LinuxONE III LT2 servers: z/VM V6.4 and 7.1 can be installed directly on the IBM z15 T02 and LinuxONE III LT2 servers. z/VM 6.4 requires an image obtained from IBM after August 25, 2017. The PTF for APAR VM66248 must be applied immediately after installing z/VM. Installation of z/VM V6.4 and V7.1 from the IBM z15 T02 and LinuxONE III LT2 servers USB flash drive is supported. Information on receiving z/VM product deliverables electronically can be found at: http://www.vm.ibm.com/install/prodinst.html Support for the z15 T02 and LinuxONE III LT2 servers also requires the PTFs for the following APARs: - ICKDSF support requires APAR PI46151. - EREP/VM support requires APAR VM65952. - HCD support requires APARs VM66307 (IBM z15 T02), or VM66347 (LinuxONE III LT2). - HCM support requires APARs VM65266 and VM65598. - IOCP support requires APAR VM66240. - HLASM support requires APAR PH00902
