z/VM service required to run on the IBM z14 and LinuxONE Emperor II

Last updated: September 13, 2017

Note: In order to install z/VM V6.4 directly on the IBM z14 and LinuxONE Emperor II you must order the newest deliverable for the z/VM V6.4 base product that became available on August 25, 2017. Once you have completed your installation of, or upgrade to, z/VM 6.4, APAR VM65942 must be applied.

Also, VM65942 has been found to have an error, and VM66071 has been opened to address it. Note that the problem found does not involve z14 support directly. It involves a scenario where older crypto adapters (Crypto Express 2 or Crypto Express 3) are configured as an accelerator shared amongst z/VM guests. Systems with newer crypto adapters (such as z13 or z14) or z/VM LPARs without any crypto adapters configured will not experience the problem.

z/VM 630 is supported only when migrating an existing image from an older IBM z Systems server. The PTFs for APARs VM65942, VM65921 and VM65922 must be applied prior to moving the image to z14 or LinuxONE Emperor II.


The table below provides you with a list of service required for z/VM V6.3 and V6.4 to run on the IBM z14 and and LinuxONE Emperor II with driver 32.
