Installation

  • Runs on the following IBM servers, or equivalents:
    • IBM System z10
    • IBM System z9
    • IBM eServer zSeries z800, z890, z900, or z990
    • S/390 Parallel Enterprise Servers -
      Generation 5 (G5) and Generation 6 (G6) models
  • OSA adapters - one of the following (or combination):
    • Two OSA-2 adapters in non-shared mode, or
    • Two OSA-Express ports, one LCS and one LSA, or
      • Driver 3G J11204 MCL 042 LIC level 3.5 for z800/z900
      • Driver 52 J12552 MCL 014 LIC level 5.5 for z890/z990
    • Two OSA-Express2 ports, one LCS and one LSA, or
    • Two OSA-Express3 ports, one LCS and one LSA

LCS:
  • CCL requires a 31-bit or 64-bit IBM System z10, System z9, zSeries, or G5/G6 system
  • OSA-2 OSA-Express, OSA-Express2 and OSA-Express3 in either LSA or LCS mode require copper wire OSA.
