Migrate or Upgrade to a supported z/VM release

Upgrade replaced the migration process beginning with z/VM V6.3. Using this technique you can upgrade a servicable z/VM release to the next release with minimal impact to the current running system. If the system being upgraded is out of service, but meets the remaining criteria it may require mulitple upgrades. Continuous Delivery keeps two z/VM releases in service making it easier to plan upgrades and remain on a current release.

Migrating a release, or on a previous release that doesn't support Upgrade In Place? Refer to the z/VM Migration Guide by entering 'migration' in the FILTER box at the top right of your release for either: z/VM Version 7.2 or z/VM Version 7.1.
