RSU Plans

We receive many inquiries about the timing of the "next RSU". As a result, we are providing information here about potential RSU deliveries.

Because schedules may change for various reasons, we might need to deliver something sooner or later than anticipated.

To be notified when changes occur please subscribe to this page.

When ordering an RSU, be aware that you will also receive a link to the RSU PSP Bucket. This PSP Bucket has fix items, including PE resolutions, that normally would be included as part of an RSU. However, some of those items pull significant new function updates (for example, APAR VM66173 -- Four Terabyte Main Memory Support) that have not met the z/VM development organization's criteria for RSU content (although these updates likely have been identified as candidates for a subsequent RSU).

It is advised that you verify the PSP Bucket sent with your RSU order, and download and install it only if you want the new function APARS applied to your system.
