By Jeroen Tiggelman posted Tue October 06, 2020 02:09 PM

z/VM 7.2 was announced on August 4, 2020 with a planned availability date of September 18, 2020. 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, 2.3.1, and 2.4.0.


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 VM66454 provides PTF UV99377 for zSecure Manager for RACF z/VM 1.11.2.
APAR OA60205 provides PTFs UJ04099, UJ04100, UJ04101, UJ04102, and UJ04103 for zSecure for z/OS 2.2.0, 2.2.1, 2.3.0, 2.3,1, and 2.4.0, respectively.


These fixes prevent a.o. the following:
* Message CKV157I being issued by zSecure Collect for z/VM, stating that the z/VM 7.2 release is not supported
* Failing to report the correct release number when data from a z/VM 7.2 system is processed

If you have any questions, please post them here or on the zSecure support forum. The IBM Security zSecure today article serves as a starting point to reach all the latest zSecure announcements.

Note: This is PTF UV99377, the one for 7.1 was PTF UV99337.
