Description

z/VM Version 3 Release 1

Enhanced Architecture and Device Support

zSeries 900 Family of Servers: z/VM exploits the z/Architecture enabling you to run 64-bit capable operating systems such as OS/390 Release 10, z/OS, or Linux for zSeries as guests of z/VM when z/VM is running on a zSeries server. Additionally, 31-bit guest operating systems such as OS/390, VSE/ESA, TPF, and Linux for S/390 can run on z/VM and realize memory constraint relief because of the z/VM support of large real memory. This support simplifies the migration and testing of 64-bit operating systems and applications. z/VM Version 3 Release 1 supports 64-bit virtual coupling facilities as well as continuing to support them in ESA/390™ (32-bit) mode. For additional information on z/OS, refer to Software Announcement 200-352 , dated October 3, 2000. For additional information on the zSeries 900 Family of Servers, refer to Hardware Announcement 100-323 , dated October 3, 2000.

Enterprise Storage Server (ESS) Support: Guest support for the Parallel Access Volumes feature has been integrated into z/VM Version 3 Release 1. This feature allows the configuration of logical volumes (known as alias Parallel Access Volumes), where each logical volume (alias) has its own unique device address but is actually an exposure of the existing real device (known as the base Parallel Access Volume). This allows the host to issue concurrent I/O requests to one real device, the base volume, through the different alias volumes.

z/VM allows a native CP user to initiate a Flash Copy (an instant copy of a disk volume or minidisk) of a source device to a target device on an IBM ESS. Customers will find this feature especially beneficial for large databases which normally require a long time to copy.

Tape Support Enhancements: z/VM will provide additional guest support for the 3494 Virtual Tape Server (VTS):

  • Peer-to-Peer VTS provides flexible component placement to meet 7 x 24 processing requirements and a solution for remote backup and recovery.
  • Import/Export allows physical tapes to be removed and inserted into the VTS logical tape library.

3590 A60 tape controllers attached with FICON channels will be supported for use by guests of z/VM when such guests themselves support the 3590 A60 on native-FICON channels.

Connectivity Enhancements for TCP/IP

FTP Server Improvements: The FTP server has been enhanced to better accommodate Web browser and graphical FTP clients. The changes and new function include:

  • The ability to provide UNIX-format list information in response to client DIR subcommand requests.
  • The ability to perform automatic EBCDIC-ASCII data translation for transferred files, based on file types (or file extensions).
  • New subcommands.
  • A server-specific configuration file is now used by the FTP server for its startup information, making configuration more consistent with other TCP/IP servers.

IP Multicast Support: This support provides the ability to send an IP datagram to a group of hosts that are members of a single multicast group, and the ability for members of a multicast group to receive multicast datagrams. Membership in multicast groups is dynamic and may be spread across separate physical networks. Hosts may join or leave a multicast group at any time. They are not required to belong to a multicast group to send datagrams to its members. TCP/IP will maintain a list of host group memberships associated with each network interface. IP Multicast is exploited by ROUTED.

Queued Direct I/O (QDIO) Support: TCP/IP now supports Queued Direct I/O providing greater performance utilizing this highly efficient data transfer architecture. The QDIO facility allows a program to directly exchange data with an I/O device without performing traditional S/390 I/O instructions. QDIO enables the TCP/IP stack to support the OSA Express adapter for connection to a Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or 155 ATM (Ethernet LAN Emulation) network.

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Support: SSL is a TCP/IP protocol providing privacy between two communicating applications (a client and a server). Under SSL protocol, the server is authenticated and must provide a certificate to prove its identity. In addition to authentication, both the client and the server participate in a handshake protocol that produces the cryptographic parameters for the session.

The processing required for SSL is provided by a new SSL server. An installation identifies the ports that are secure and specifies the certificates to be used. Any VM server listening on a secure port can participate in an SSL connection with any external client that supports SSL according to RFC 2246. No changes to the VM server are required to use the SSL support.

VM NFS Client Support: This enhancement allows CMS users and applications transparent access to data on remote systems that run NFS servers supporting Sun NFS V2 or V3 protocols, or both.

The remote data accessed by an NFS client is mounted on the CMS BFS structure in a single virtual machine. Once mounted, the remote file system is accessible using BFS interfaces

Additional z/VM Enhancements

Binder/Loader Support: CMS hosts the DFSMS/MVS Program Management Binder and provides a native implementation of the corresponding program object loader functions. Included with this support is a new CMS command, BIND, to invoke the services of the binder to bind and store an executable file containing a program object on DASD (minidisk, SFS, or BFS). An executable file produced by the binder may be used on a CMS system containing the program object loader in exactly the same way as a conventional MODULE file generated by the CMS GENMOD command. Also provided is an enhancement to the C89 command to use the new BIND command in place of the combination of the LE prelinker and the old LOAD, INCLUDE, and GENMOD commands. Furthermore, the complete binder API is available to application programs that need to invoke the services of the binder dynamically. The CMS binder/loader support allows ready transportability of executable files between z/VM and OS/390 or z/OS systems and provides the infrastructure to permit CMS to exploit new and emerging programming language technology being developed for z/OS, thus significantly enhancing CMS's OS application affinity.

VM Dump Tool: With this support, the VM Dump Tool is introduced as the supported vehicle for reading abend, stand-alone or virtual machine dumps of CP system. The Dump Viewing Facility continues to be the supported vehicle for reading non-CP (CMS, and so on) dumps. The VM Dump Tool assists in analyzing dump data from a dump file created by the DUMPLOAD utility.

Graphical User Interface (GUI) Facility

The following changes have been made to the GUI Facility in z/VM:

  • The GUI workstation agents, along with their Help files, will not be shipped with the z/VM product. They will be available with limited support from the VM Download Library at:
  • The CMSDESK application modules and message repository will also be available as part of the GUI package from the download library.
  • The Distributed Graphical User Interface Toolkit and the Graphical User Interface Facility publications will not be part of the z/VM product library. You can obtain copies of these books from the IBM Publication Ordering System.
  • The CMSDESK command and nucleus routines will remain in CMS. Documentation will be available from the GUI download package. To use these functions, you will need to download the workstation agents and GUI modules and put them on a CMS minidisk or SFS directory of your choice.

Product Restructuring and Packaging Changes

Numerous changes have been made to the packaging of z/VM Version 3 Release 1 which include:

  • The OpenEdition® Shell and Utilities , which was a priced, optional feature of VM/ESA, has been integrated into the CMS component of z/VM Version 3 Release 1. It has been renamed to OpenExtensions™ Shell and Utilities and is now available at no additional charge.
  • The NFS Client , new with z/VM is integrated into CMS and the priced, optional TCP/IP Feature of z/VM.
  • The TCP/IP Kerberos Data Encryption Standard (DES) Feature of z/VM has been integrated into the TCP/IP feature of z/VM. This provides 48-bit encryption/decryption services for the Kerberos authentication server as well as APIs for application programs.
  • The LAN File Services/ESA (LFS/ESA) feature of VM/ESA has been withdrawn from marketing and is not available in z/VM. Refer to Withdrawal Announcement 999-387 , dated December 7, 1999.
  • OSA/SF Version 2 Release 1 , which supports the OSA Express, is included in the OSA/SF feature for z/VM. For additional information about OSA/SF V2R1, refer to Software Announcement 299-041 , dated February 22, 1999.
  • The 6250 tape medium is no longer supported as a distribution medium for z/VM.

Year 2000

This product is Year 2000 ready. When used in accordance with its associated documentation, it is capable of correctly processing, providing, and/or receiving date data within and between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, provided that all products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) used with the product properly exchange accurate date data with it.

Euro Currency

This program is EuroReady.

For more information on the implications of the euro, visit the IBM euro Web site at:

EuroReady Products

IBM considers an IBM product to be EuroReady if the product, when used in accordance with its associated documentation, is capable of correctly processing monetary data in the euro denomination and of respecting the euro currency formatting conventions (including the euro sign). This assumes that all other products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) that are used with this product are also EuroReady. IBM hardware products that are EuroReady may or may not have an engraved euro sign key on their keyboards.

Currently, EuroReady status applies primarily to IBM products specific to the EMU countries. Products that are not specific to these countries are deemed to be "not ready" for euro unless otherwise stated in the product's country-specific specifications.

IBM Hardware Ready

IBM supplies certain IBM products which include third party software (pre-loaded or not) and/or third party attached hardware. In these instances IBM is not in a position to assert that these third party products are, in themselves, EuroReady.

Therefore, such IBM products will be designated as Hardware ready.

EuroReady Solutions

IBM considers a solution to be EuroReady when the solution providers have:

  • Analyzed the euro requirements, including the need to comply with relevant EC rules
  • Built in appropriate function

and can clearly demonstrate this by:

  • Detailing euro related requirements
  • Describing how these will be implemented in the solution
  • Declaring when the implementation will be generally available

The euro capabilities of a EuroReady solution will be clearly identified as features of the Solution specification as described in the contracts document.

Product Positioning

z/VM is intended to address the following customer situations:

  • OS/390 customers migrating to OS/390 Release 10 or z/OS will find z/VM gives them added flexibility for their test and migration work. z/VM supports the execution of 64-bit operating systems running on the new zSeries 900 family of servers.
  • Customers with real memory constraints will experience relief by running z/VM in 64-bit mode on a zSeries 900. This constraint relief is provided for 31-bit guest operating systems such as TPF. It is not uncommon for TPF customers who run tens of guest systems for testing to encounter paging constraints imposed by a 31-bit capable VM/ESA. Customers running a large number of MVS™, OS/390, VSE/ESA, or Linux images may also benefit from this support.
  • Customers with multiple servers supporting their business environment can take advantage of larger memory capacity and consolidate more workload on a zSeries 900.
  • VM/ESA customers requiring more memory to cache CMS minidisks can exploit memory above 2 GB for minidisk cache with z/VM.

  • VM/ESA customers will benefit from the enhanced support in z/VM for connectivity (TCP/IP) and device support.
  • VM/ESA customers requiring SSL-secure TCP/IP network traffic, such as Telnet sessions and Web transactions, will be able to do so with z/VM.
  • Guest Parallel Sysplex® support is enhanced in z/VM with the exploitation of the 64-bit architecture providing the ability to address larger amounts of real and virtual memory. This will allow customers to develop and test their 64-bit applications in a guest environment.

z/VM is the follow-on product for VM/ESA customers. It provides additional support and exploitation opportunities for the thousands of customers that have built enterprise-wide automation and infrastructure enhancements on the VM platform in support of their applications, database systems, network computing, and e-business solutions.

Statement of Direction

The following actions are planned by IBM. We highly recommend that you consider these plans when planning for system upgrades.

  • LANRES support in z/VM is planned to be functionally stabilized at the z/VM Version 3 Release 1 level. It is IBM's intent to remove LANRES from a future release of z/VM.

  • Host Management Facility V1 R1.1 (5684-157) — #VM62632
  • CMS Utilities Feature V1 R1.1 — #VM62639

System Delivery Offering (SDO): The z/VM System Delivery Offering Version 3 Release 1 (5654-A20) is an entitled offering and will be available concurrently with the general availability of z/VM Version 3 Release 1 on February 23, 2001. The VM/ESA SDO (5654-026), which is at the VM/ESA Version 2 Release 4 level, will continue to be available for ordering after the availability of the z/VM Version 3 Release 1 SDO.

The SDO content offered in each version of the SDO is dynamically updated as new program products, versions, and releases, as well as service, become available.

Progress in increasing the number of products exploiting VMSES/E make the VM SDO a more integrated and dynamic IBM software package. Key benefits of this SDO are:

  • An increase in the number of products available in VMSES/E format. This, coupled with delivery of the majority of non-VMSES/E format products in semi-VMSES/E format, allows VMSES/E to be the single installation vehicle for most products. Only a few products remain completely non-VMSES/E installable and INSTFPP will still be used to install these products.
  • The ability to dynamically update the content of the SDO at any time. This includes service updating a product, adding new products or new versions or releases of already provided products, or deleting products. This capability will make the SDO a more effective solution for the z/VM customer.

For additional information on the SDO, refer to the VM Web site at:

Customer Responsibilities

Products and Features Packaged with z/VM

With the availability of z/VM Version 3 Release 1, TCP/IP, Remote Spooling Communication System (RSCS), Language Environment (LE) for VM, and Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) for VM Version 4.1 (previously Tivoli ADSM for VM Version 3.1) will be automatically shipped and pre-installed in z/VM Version 3 Release 1 base product DDRs.

TCP/IP is a priced, optional feature. RSCS and TSM are priced optional products pre-installed on the z/VM system DDRs. The feature or products must be enabled to use. If you choose to enable them, you must have a license for the product. For TCP/IP, a license is established for the Base feature (Level 3A0) and the Network File System (NFS) feature of TCP/IP by ordering the appropriate charge feature numbers under z/VM Version 3 Release 1, product number 5654-A17. If a license does not already exist for RSCS and TSM, you may establish one by placing an order for the product and using the delivery option "ship publications only" (feature 3471). This delivery option will prevent unnecessary shipment of the media while allowing for shipment of the basic publications for the products, including the program directories. The program directories include instructions for enabling use of the products.

Additional information concerning this new packaging method can be found in the Ordering section under New Licensees.

Running 370-Mode Applications

CMS does not run in 370 mode virtual machines. To simplify the migration of older applications and facilitate the running of 370 mode-only CMS applications in non-370 mode virtual machines, such as XA or XC mode, IBM provides the 370 Accommodation function. This function was originally shipped with VM/ESA 1.2.1 (available July 1993) and has since been enhanced as the result of customer experience and input. 370 Accommodation handles the vast majority of inconsistencies between 370 mode and either XA or XC mode, eliminating the need to change these applications to exploit the new architectures.

The IBM S/390 Generation 4, 5, and 6 servers as well as the zSeries 900, do not support S/370™-mode operations. Therefore, the following VM systems or functions will not function on these systems:

  • Any unsupported release of VM
  • 370-mode CMS virtual machines
  • 370-mode guests

The CMS Migration Utility Feature, provided with VM/ESA Version 2 Release 3, is not available with z/VM Version 3 Release 1. Customers who find their applications cannot run under the current level of CMS should use the 370 Accommodation function or modify their applications if possible. If problems persist, customers should call IBM Service for assistance.

Direct Customer Support: Direct customer support is provided by Support Line for S/390 Software. This fee service can enhance your productivity by providing voice and electronic access into the IBM support organization. Support Line for S/390 Software will help answer questions pertaining to usage, how to, and suspected software defects for eligible products.

Installation and technical support is provided by IBM Global Services. For more information on services, call 800-IBM-4YOU (426-4968).

Security, Auditability, and Control

The announced programs uses the security and auditability features inherent in the virtual machine and the System/370™, ESA/370, ESA/390™, and z/Architecture. The security and auditability of z/VM is the same for ESA/390 and z/Architecture. The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

Single Version Charging: To elect single version charging, the customer must notify and identify to IBM the prior program and replacement program and the designated machine the programs are operating on.

Basic Machine-Readable Material: z/VM Version 3 Release 1 is installed via the z/VM System DDR and is available on either 3480 cartridge, 4-mm DAT cartridge, or CD-ROM. This can be ordered through the z/VM base product (5654-A17) or via the VM/System Delivery Offering (SDO). (For more information regarding SDO, refer to the Software Delivery Offering section in the Technical Information section.) The z/VM Version 3 Release 1 deliverable is the z/VM System DDR. It is refreshed as needed.

For all z/VM Version 3 Release 1 orders, the following no-charge prerequisite products are pre-installed on the System DDRs:

  • EREP (5654-260)
  • ICKDSF (5684-042)

Therefore, when ordering z/VM Version 3 Release 1, the customer must be licensed for these products or a separate order must be placed for these products.

Note: The High Level Assembler (HLASM) is no longer shipped on the DDR. If you would like HLASM, it must be ordered separately. Refer to the Software Requirements section for information on when HLASM is required.

To order the z/VM Version 3 Release 1 System DDR, select the feature number of the desired distribution medium:

Feature
Number              Distribution Medium

The DCE User Data Privacy feature (#6467) requires the OpenExtensions DCE Base Services feature (#6466) to be installed first. The OpenEdition DCE User Data Privacy feature is a no-charge feature used for controlling the export of the DES algorithm. When installed, this feature enables data encryption using the DES algorithm. Because this feature contains data encryption, it is therefore subject to special export licensing requirements by the Bureau of Export Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Ordering a DSLO feature will result in IBM maintaining a record of this customer location as a DSLO user only. All material for the DSLO license will be provided through the basic license location. If a user selects DSLO, no other feature numbers are valid for this order and no program materials or updates will be shipped.

Extended License Charge (ELC)

ELC Basic License: To order a basic license, specify the appropriate program and feature number, if required, for asset registration. Specify the applicable ELC features. Also, specify the feature number of the desired distribution medium.

Processors with assigned capacity above 80 MSUs will have VM and VSE software prices, including zSeries 900 servers (or equivalent) that do not qualify for FWLC charges, based on the CPU service unit capacity of the processor. The ELC price structure will have a Base Charge for 80 MSU capacity and an incremental per MSU charge for all additional MSUs above the 80 MSU base.

ELC charges are Monthly License Charges.
