There's been some pretty significant changes made in this release. Reading the release notes would be advisable. And not just the IBM Z specific parts, but all of them."

Release notes are available here: Release Notes: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP3 and includes IBM Z-specific changes (s390x) including:

  • support has been added for IPL and re-IPL from local PCI NVMe storage
  • zhypinfo and zname commands added to the qclib package
  • s390x CPU topology masks have been made consistent with all other architectures
  • Various networking, security, storage, and virtualization updates!

As Mark notes, it's worth spending time exploring these new features, it really is a great release for SLES 15.
