Statement of Direction
These statements represent current intentions of IBM. IBM development plans are subject to change or withdrawal without further notice.
Any reliance on this Statement of Direction is at the relying party's sole risk and will not create any liability or obligation for IBM.
Effective with z/OS.e V1.5:
The application development support (that is, the headers, source, sidedecks, objects, and samples from the Application Support Class and Collection Class libraries) will be withdrawn from the C/C++ IBM Open Class® Library (IOC) starting with z/OS.e V1.5. Runtime support for IOC is planned to be removed in a future release.
Effective with z/OS.e V1.6:
The following actions will be effective in a future release of z/OS.e:
All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice.
Hardware and Software Support Services
IBM Global Services provides a number of remote and on-site IBM SmoothStart Services, Operational Support Services, Migration Services, and Installation Services designed to accelerate your productive use of your IBM solution. These services are provided by IBM Global Services or your IBM Business Partner at an additional charge. For additional information, contact your IBM representative and ask for IGS Services for z/OS or z/OS.e.
z/OS.e Product Content
z/OS.e is composed of base elements and optional features. Optional features are priced and unpriced. To learn more about these elements and features, refer to the z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504), publication, which is available by visiting:
Replacing Base Elements: You can replace a z/OS.e base function with a commercially available product that provides a similar function. Contact an IBM representative for qualification and pricing information. All z/OS.e integrated testing results and performance claims are voided with such replacement.
Enabling Optional Priced Features:
z/OS.e optional priced features use a z/OS.e product registration
service, together with product policy statements to determine whether or
not the z/OS.e priced feature has been ordered and should run. Optional
priced features that are ordered concurrently with z/OS.e will be shipped
by IBM together with policy statements in PARMLIB that enable the ordered
priced features. z/OS.e priced features that have not been ordered will
be shipped with z/OS.e, but with policy statements that disable the
unordered features. If you subsequently enable any of the optional
priced features, those features also become subject to the payment terms
of your existing z/OS.e license as described in the
z/OS.e Licensed Program Specifications
(GA22-7868). You must notify IBM when you enable an optional feature
that was shipped disabled. A detailed description of the enablement
support is available in the
z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation
Euro Sign Support
z/OS.e V1.4 includes euro currency symbol support for an additional set of countries and languages.
The following worldwide courses are available for classroom delivery:
Descriptions of courses and training solutions with links to enrollment are available by visiting:
z/OS.e V1.4 runs on the zSeries 800 family of servers or comparable non-IBM servers.
Note: The z800 server does not support parallel channels, but does provide an option for you to purchase a parallel channel converter box.
The zSeries 800 server is for customers who require a cost-competitive server that can process multiple e-business workloads, running concurrently under any of the following operating systems:
The zSeries 800 provides Parallel Sysplex® support. It also supports HiperSockets and offers other improved I/O capabilities and capacity compared to the Multiprise® 3000.
For additional information, refer to Hardware Announcement
, dated February 19, 2002.
The z/OS.e base is an IPL-able system. Specific functions may require additional products not included in z/OS.e base, or in the optional features of z/OS.e. Refer to the z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504) publication for a listing of specific software requirements. It is available on the Web:
z/OS.e can IPL in LPAR mode only, not basic mode. Therefore, z/OS.e can run in its own LPAR, in multiple LPARs, or as a guest under z/VM running in an LPAR. If one guest is z/OS.e, then other guests can be z/OS.e or Linux. The z/OS.e LPARs must add up to the number of MSUs, that is, the number of engines licensed for z/OS.e.
Customers need to predefine the LPAR name the z/OS.e system is to run in,
to "ZOSExxxx". Also, at IPL time you must either enter "LICENSE=z/OSe"
as part of the system parameter or specify LICENSE=z/OSe in your IEASYSxx
member of SYS1.PARMLIB. A z/OS.e system will be delivered with the
IEASYS00 member containing the LICENSE=z/OSe specification.
Coexistence, Release Migrations, and Fallback
z/OS.e, like z/OS, gives you compatibility and flexibility as you migrate systems in a multisystem configuration by allowing several releases of z/OS.e or z/OS.e in combination with z/OS and OS/390 to coexist. For more information refer to Software Announcement 202-191 , dated August 13, 2002.
z/OS.e V1.4 is coexistence supported with z/OS.e V1.3 and z/OS V1.4 (and also z/OS V1.3, z/OS V1.2, z/OS V1.1 and OS/390 V2.10), just as these releases are coexistence supported with z/OS V1.4.
Note: Like z/OS, z/OS.e cannot coexist in a Parallel Sysplex with z/OS V1.1 running on any supported server or OS/390 V2.10 running on an S/390 Parallel Enterprise Server R2, R3, G3, or G4 server if an OS/390, z/OS or Coupling Facility image in that sysplex is running on a z990.
Effective with z/OS.e V1.6, IBM intends to align the Coexistence-Migration-Fallback policy with the Service policy. This policy change simplifies and provides greater predictability to aid in release migrations. IBM intends to continue providing service support for each release of z/OS or z/OS.e for three years following its availability date. IBM, at its sole discretion, may choose to leave a release supported for more than three years. In some cases, more than three releases may be coexistence, migration, and fallback supported, if IBM (at its sole discretion) chooses to provide service support for greater than three years for a release. However, as an exception, any z/OS or z/OS.e release having three or fewer months of service remaining at the time of availability of a new release will not be coexistence, migration, and fallback supported.
Note: These statements represent current IBM intentions. IBM reserves the right to change or alter the coexistence-migration-fallback policy in the future or to exclude certain releases beyond those stated. IBM development plans are subject to change or withdrawal without further notice. Any reliance on this statement of direction is at the relying party's sole risk and does not create any liability or obligation for IBM.
For z/OS V1.5 and V1.4, and z/OS.e V1.5 and V1.4, and earlier releases, the existing coexistence-migration-fallback policy (and any accommodations previously provided) remains in effect and is unchanged as documented above.
For migrations inside the IBM migration and coexistence policy, IBM Global Services (IGS) has fee-based offerings that provide a PTF on demand service for compatibility and coexistence maintenance based upon a customer's SMP/E Consolidated Software Inventory (CSI). With these offerings, you specify the release of z/OS, z/OS.e, OS/390, or other products, or hardware (for example, 2066) to which you are migrating, and all configured compatibility/coexistence maintenance for your current system (as specified by your CSI) will be delivered to you as a customized package in electronic or physical format. This is provided through the Service Request and Delivery (SRD) application in SoftwareXcel enterprise edition for zSeries. For more information, visit
IGS also provides hands-on fee-based services to assess whether a
migration outside the migration and coexistence policy might be possible.
For more information on the migration services that IGS provides for both
inside and outside the migration and coexistence policy, contact your
local IBM sales specialist.
JES Coexistence, Release Migrations, and Fallback
With z/OS.e, you migrate to JES2 or JES3 at the same time you migrate to the rest of z/OS.e. In this way, you benefit directly from the new function provided by the most current JES and enable other elements and features to benefit from this level.
Fallback for z/OS.e is at a system level, rather than an element or feature level. Since you migrate to JES2 or JES3 at the same time you migrate to z/OS.e you cannot back out JES2 or JES3 separately; you can only back out the entire z/OS.e product.
Although you must run the level of JES that comes with z/OS.e, that JES can communicate with certain lower levels of JES running on other z/OS or OS/390 systems in the same MAS or multisystem complex.
For additional information on z/OS.e JES release migration and coexistence, refer to z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504) by visiting:
For additional information on z/OS.e coexistence and release migration information, refer to z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504) at:
Installation and Customization Enhancements
The only entitled delivery vehicle for z/OS.e V1.4 executable code is ServerPac. Service for z/OS.e V1.4 will be provided through CBPDO, just as z/OS service is today.
All installation enhancements done in ServerPac for z/OS will also be offered for z/OS.e. Namely,
z/OS.e will also be offered in fee-based offerings, such as Systempac®.
ServerPac SMP/E Support: ServerPac and SystemPac orders are built using either a default level of SMP/E or the lowest supported level of SMP/E that is required for the products in your order. The higher of these two SMP/E levels is used. For example, z/OS.e orders are built with the level of z/OS SMP/E provided in that release of z/OS.e. Effective May 27, 2003, if your order includes SMP/E V3.2 (5655-G44), then your order will be built with this higher level. Subsystem orders are built with OS/390 V2.10 SMP/E, unless a product in your order is dependent on a higher level of SMP/E. Your subsystem order would then be built with the minimum level of SMP/E that satisfies the requirement. The level of SMP/E used to build your order is documented in ServerPac Installing Your Order . Additionally, the Customized Offerings Driver, 5655-343, which is a subset of an OS/390 V2.10 system, is updated to include SMP/E 3.2 (5655-G44) and additional service.
Performance of z/OS.e is expected to be equivalent to the performance of z/OS running on
equivalent hardware. Information on z/OS.e performance will be available at general availability.
You should consult your IBM representative at or after general availability.
Direct Customer Support: Direct customer support is provided by IBM Operational Support Services Support Line. This fee service can enhance your productivity by providing voice and electronic access into the IBM support organization. IBM Operational Support Services Support Line will help answer questions pertaining to usage, how to, and suspected software defects for eligible products.
Fee-Based Software Services Offerings
SystemPac for z/OS.e V1.4: SystemPac is a worldwide system migration vehicle for z/OS and z/OS.e. SystemPac is the recommended IBM delivery vehicle for customers who want to save time, resources, and effort to migrate, install, exploit, and maintain their z/OS.e system-related products, and selected third-party software vendor products. The unpriced optional feature, z/OS.e V1.4 z990 Coexistence, is also available for ordering on June 24, 2003 in ProductPac®.
For more information about SystemPac and ProductPac, visit:
Select your location or country.
Packaging: When you order z/OS.e, IBM recommends that you also order all the unpriced optional (export controlled) features that you may need in the future. That is because these features may not still be orderable later when you decide you need them. For example, to obtain encryption support (security) for IBM HTTP Server for z/OS.e, you must specify the security feature IBM HTTP Server North America Secure.
For specific details on the new features described in this announcement,
refer to the
section. For specific details on features described in the initial z/OS.e V1.4 announcement,
refer to Software Announcement
, dated August 13, 2002.
Central service for suspected defects in z/OS.e code is provided by the IBM Support Center within
your geography. On-site (local) support, although available in many geographies, is provided as
part of the IBM portfolio of fee-based services.
IBM plans to provide service support for each release of z/OS.e for three years following its general availability date. IBM, at its discretion, may choose to leave a release supported for more than three years.
The service policy for the priced and unpriced features and Web deliverables that are described in this announcement is the same as the service policy of the release on which it is installed. For example, if z990 Compatibility for Selected Releases is installed on z/OS.e V1.3, IBM will provide service for this Web deliverable for the same period as it provides service for the base, z/OS.e V1.3, release.
At least twelve months' written notice will be given for z/OS.e prior to the withdrawal of service for a version or release.
z/OS.e no longer supports service for client operating systems whose service is withdrawn by the operating system manufacturer. As an example of the actual implementation of this policy, IBM will no longer support service for clients running Windows® 95.
Coexistence and migration rules apply and should be taken into account in planning future
migrations. Refer to the
Coexistence, Release Migrations, and Fallback
section for additional information.
Recommended Service Upgrade
IBM has redefined the Recommended Service Upgrade (RSU) for the z/OS platform (z/OS, z/OS.e, and OS/390) based on additional Consolidated Service Testing (CST). Testing of service for the following subsystems and products is now being done in a customer-like sysplex environment, using industry representative workloads.
Service will be tested in this consolidated service test environment on a quarterly basis. The resulting RSU is the new recommended level of service. Additionally, testing will be done on Hipers, PE Fixes, and other fixes as warranted, on a monthly basis. These monthly RSUs are recommended as we have found a correlation between availability and maintenance currency. As always, customers should review Hipers and PE fixes on a regular basis and install those that apply to their environment. For more information about CST and how to order and install the redefined recommended service, visit:
Security, Auditability, and Control
Data security and auditability in the z/OS.e environment are enhanced by the functions available in the optional Security Server for z/OS.e feature. The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.
Ordering z/OS through the Internet: ShopzSeries (formerly SHOPS390) provides an easy way to plan and order your z/OS ServerPac or CBPDO. It will analyze your current installation, determine the correct product migration, and present your new configuration based on z/OS. Additional products can also be added to your order (including determination of whether all product requisites are satisfied). ShopzSeries is available in the U.S. and several countries in Europe. In countries where ShopzSeries is not available yet, contact your IBM representative (or Business Partner) to handle your order via the traditional IBM ordering process. For more details and availability, visit the ShopzSeries Web site:
The z/OS.e V1.4 z990 Coexistence feature and the z/OS.e V1.4 z990 Coexistence Update feature will be available for electronic delivery in CBPDO when ordered using ShopzSeries. This support provides a quick and easy way for you to order and receive these features. The z/OS.e product (except for these two features) remains unavailable for electronic delivery in CBPDO.
For pricing information previously announced for z/OS.e V1, refer to Software Announcement 202-032 , dated February 19, 2002.
Refer to this section and the
section for additional billing feature numbers for the priced optional DFSMStvs feature.
z/OS.e V1.4, which became generally available on September 27, 2002, remains orderable. For ordering information, refer to Software Announcement 202-191 , dated August 13, 2002.
You can obtain Web deliverables by visiting:
Note that most z/OS.e media (executable code) is shipped only through z/OS.e Customized Offerings (ServerPac, SystemPac, and CBPDO).
Only z/OS.e V1.4 z990 Coexistence feature and the z/OS.e V1.4 z990 Coexistence Update feature are orderable via CBPDO.
Typically, when one z/OS.e release becomes orderable in ServerPac or SystemPac the previous release is no longer orderable. Because each release of z/OS.e can normally be ordered only until the next release of z/OS.e becomes orderable, order the z/OS.e release you need for migration and coexistence while it is still available.
z990 Compatibility for Selected Releases will contain support for z/OS.e V1.3.
When z990 Cryptographic Support Web deliverable becomes available, it will replace the z990 Cryptographic CP Assist Support for z/OS V1.3 Web deliverable, which includes the z/OS.e V1.3 support. Planned availability of z990 Cryptographic Support is October 31, 2003. It will include function contained in z990 Cryptographic CP Assist Support for z/OS V1.3. z990 Cryptographic Support is planned to be updated in subsequent months to functionally support additional releases, z/OS V1.3, z/OS V1.2, and OS/390 V2.10. End of service for a Web deliverable occurs at end of service for the release on which it runs. For additional information, refer to z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504), Chapter 5 "Ensuring coexistence and fallback" at:
