z/VM service required to run on the IBM z14

Last updated: July 17, 2017

Note: Installing z/VM V6.4 directly on the IBM z14 requires an image obtained from IBM on or after August 25, 2017. Immediately after installing z/VM 6.4, APAR VM65942 must be applied.

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.


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 (driver 32).
