IOF spin level 2015275
provides support for IOF to run under z/OS V2R2. The new 8E MPI file is
supported on all versions of z/OS currently supported by IBM, and should
run with older z/OS versions. The new spin level is currently
available to be downloaded. Any subsequent 8E spin levels
will also support V2R2.
IOF Release 8F will be available in
the fourth quarter of this year. 8F supports z/OS V2R2 as well.
It also has
many additional significant new features. If you will not install
z/OS V2R2 immediately you may prefer to wait for IOF Release 8F.
The changes to the new MPI will not be noticed externally by
IOF Maintenance to Support z/OS 2.2
The latest IOF 8E CUMFIX file also contains all the required
maintenance to support z/OS 2.2. If you ae currently running
IOF spin level 2013316 you can apply all available maintenance on
the CUMFIX file to support z/OS V2R2. The CUMFIX file will not
provide 2.2 support when applied to earlier IOF spin levels. Enter VERSION ALL
on any IOF panel to determine your spin level.
We recommend that you install the new 2015275 MPI spin level to get 2.2 support. But if you
decide to apply maintenance, we recommend that you apply all the
available fixes. In order to run under z/OS 2.2 you must install
at least the following fixes to spin level 2013316:
U8E2599 U8E2609 U8E2625 U8E2630 U8E2636
