    ---------------------------------------------
    This APAR applies to SAP on DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS users only
    ---------------------------------------------
    The purpose of this APAR is to act as the master information
    source for SAP on DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS. It contains
    information on supported or planned release combinations,
    service recommendations and more.

    2. Operating System and DB2 release matrix as avail. or planned
    3. Recommended service level
    4. Miscellaneous information, for example, documentation

    .
    1. Overview
    ---------------------------------------------
    This APAR gives an overview on supported
       - z/OS and OS/390 releases,
       - DB2 versions, and
       - AIX, Linux, NT, Solaris, and z/OS or OS/390 releases for
         the application server
    as they are currently available or planned in future.
    All information contained in this APAR is preliminary as long
    as the product is not released or as long as the particular
    release combination is not yet supported by SAP.
    The information is subject to change without further notice.
    The APAR may also be used as master index or cross reference to
    other information APARs interesting for SAP on DB2 for OS/390
    and z/OS.  It will be updated on a continuing basis.
    If there are any differences between the information in this
    APAR and the official support statements from SAP as spelled
    out in the corresponding SAP notes, the information in the SAP
    notes should be considered more recent.
    For detailed planning and preparation information see the IBM
    documentation "SAP on DB2 UDB for OS/390 and z/OS: Planning
    Guide" as well as the "SAP R/3 on DB2 for OS/390: Connectivity
    Guide".

    2. Operating system and DB2 release matrix as currently
       available or planned (last update May 26, 2004):
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Note that this information is preliminary as long as the
    products are not released, or as long as the particular release
    combination is not yet supported by SAP.  Therefore this
    information is subject to change without further notice.
    The matrix reflects the plans as of the date shown above, and
    it does not say anything about the point in time when the
    planned support of any of the items will actually be available.
    Check in SAP's SAPNet Web Frontend (previously known as Online
    Service System) which database (DB) and operating system
    combination have already been released.
    You can find the DB2/390 release notes by searching for
    component XX-SER-SWREL and text containing the string "390".
    For currently available releases, the SAP note numbers are:
       80625    R/3 3.0x/3.1x on DB2/390
       85844    R/3 4.0x/4.5x on DB2/390
       156554   R/3 4.6x on DB2/390
       407325   SAP Web Application Server 6.x on DB2/390
    .
    For your own planning take into account SAP's maintenance finish
    dates as well as discontinuance of service of the operating
    system and the database version.  End-of-Service (EOS) dates for
    OS/390 releases can be found at:
    http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/zos/support/...
         ...zos_eos_dates.html
    Planned or expected EOS dates for
            - OS/390 2.10:   9/2004
            - z/OS 1.1:      3/2004
            - z/OS 1.2:     10/2004
            - z/OS 1.3:     03/2005
    End-of-Service (EOS) dates for DB2 for z/OS and OS/390 can be
    found at:
    http://www.ibm.com/software/data/db2/zos/support/plc/index.html

    Notes:
    "+" behind a release number shows that this release is supported
        as well as higher, certified releases, and future releases
        are planned to be supported some time after their general
        availability.  As soon as such a higher release becomes
        supported, the DB2/390 release notes mentioned above are
        updated accordingly.
    (1) SAP runs on OS/390 and on z/OS.  The release in above
        matrix refers to the minimum supported OS/390 release
        unless z/OS is explicitely mentioned as minimum.
    (2) AIX 32-bit only:      3.1I_COM, 4.0B_COM, 4.5B_COM
        AIX 32- and 64 bit:   4.6D, 6.10
        AIX 64-bit only:      6.20 and higher
    .
        32-bit SAP kernels run on 32-bit hardware as well as on
        64-bit hardware.
    .
        Support for SAP kernels on
           AIX 32 bit        will not expire for SAP kernels
                                based on 3.1, 4.0, 4.5 and 4.6.
    (3) The latest service pack which is supported by SAP is
        required. Supported service packs are documented in SAP
        note 30478.
    (4) Only specific Linux distributions with defined Kernel and
        glibc are supported: see SAP note 81737 to find out which
        Linux distributions are supported
    (5) A G5 HW model is the required minimum (see II12111).
    (6) AIX 64-bit only.
    (7) z/OS 1.4 is minimum requirement; however, if it is planned
        not to use J2EE, it is still possible to use z/OS 1.2+.
        Note that DB2 Version 8 requires z/OS 1.4.
    .
    Extended release matrix for outdated kernels
    --------------------------------------------
    A few SAP modules are delivered only on certain kernels which
    may meanwhile have become outdated.
    Following kernels are supported only for the installation of
    these SAP modules.  After you have installed these modules on
    the outdated kernel, you should replace the outdated kernel by
    the most current one.

    Notes:
    (1) SAP runs on OS/390 and on z/OS.  The release in this matrix
        refers to the minimum supported OS/390 release.
    (2) AIX 32- and 64 bit:   4.6D
    .
        32-bit SAP kernels run on 32-bit hardware as well as on
        64-bit hardware.
    (3) The latest service pack which is supported by SAP is
        required. Supported service packs are documented in SAP
        note 30478.
    (4) A G5 HW model is the required minimum (see II12111).
        For more requirements like e.g. the tcsh (C-Shell) kit, see
        SAP doc. "R/3 Installation on OS/390 UNIX System Services".
    .
    3. Recommended service level
    ---------------------------------------------
    The recommended service level is documented and regularly
    updated in SAP note 81737.  This note should be reviewed on
    a regular basis to ensure that all PTFs fixing problems that
    were experienced with SAP on DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS are
    applied.
    .
    A PTF check tool is available from SAP which supports you in
    checking the service level on your systems.  It automatically
    retrieves the current SAP note 81737 and the fix level file from
    SAPNet Web Frontend (OSS).
    For details on the check tool refer to SAP note 183311.
    .
    4. Miscellaneous information, for example, documentation
    --------------------------------------------------------
    The Planning Guide is issued once per SAP release and orderable
    through IBM shortly after the availability of the SAP upgrade
    shipment.
    It is also part of the SAP installation and upgrade shipments.
    If you need this book before the SAP shipment, you may want
    to use the book belonging to the previous SAP release.
    From Release 4.6C and higher, the documentation is supplied
    only as pdf files on the inst. documentation CD and upgrade
    documentation CD in the installation and upgrade packages.
    You may still order printed copies of the documentation:
    SAP documentation may be ordered through SAPNet Web Frontend
    under XX-SER-SWFL-SHIP using the SAP material number.
    IBM documentation may be ordered using the IBM Form Number
    through IBM.
