By Jeroen Tiggelman posted Wed November 07, 2018 09:47 AM

z/VM V7R1 was announced on August 7, 2018 with a planned availability date of September 21, 2018. Toleration fixes have been made available for zSecure Manager for RACF z/VM 1.11.2 and for zSecure for z/OS 2.2.0, 2.2.1, 2.3.0, and 2.3.1.


IBM Security zSecure Manager for RACF z/VM helps you protect your z/VM systems. You can feed the data collected by its zSecure Collect for z/VM (CKVCOLL) component into IBM Security zSecure Admin and zSecure Audit. This allows comprehensive analysis including both z/OS and z/VM systems.
Relevant APARs

APAR VM66208 provides PTF UV99337 for zSecure Manager for RACF z/VM 1.11.2.
APAR OA56184 provides PTFs UA97662, UA97663, UA97664, and UA97665 for zSecure for z/OS 2.2.0, 2.2.1, 2.3.0, and 2.3.1, respectively.


These fixes prevent a.o. the following:
* Message CKV157I being issued by zSecure Collect for z/VM, stating that the z/VM V7R1 release is not supported
* Failing to report the correct release number when data from a z/VM V7R1 system is processed
