    ****************************************************************
    IBM Installation Manager installing on zOS detects that
    there may be insufficient disk space for the requested
    install.  However even after detecting the space is
    insufficient, IBM Installation Manager continued the install
    which ended up with a corrupted install.
    

Problem conclusion

  • In the IBM Installation Manager version 1.7.1, disk space
    validation failures are now reported as an error instead of
    a warning on z/OS to match all other platforms.  With the
    error condition detected, the install request is not
    allowed.
