OVERVIEW

zPDT Software Update, release date October 4th, 2021
This Driver release of GA-10 (55.12) includes the following updates:

Fixed in this release:

  • Enhancement to allow defining z memory in the devmap with Gb.
  • Fixed an unexpected Specification Exception condition for Compression Call instruction (CMPSC).
  • Fixed z1090instcheck on Ubuntu 20.04.
  • For IBM zDT : Enhanced Software License Server configuration process to support more rules and enhanced error message.

Emulation of System z Networking (OSA) no longer requires root authority as it is now handled by Linux Capabilities. Linux installs this by default on Redhat and Ubuntu but is not on Suse. There you will need to install the support via “sudo zypper install libcap-progs”. You will need to reinstall the driver to make this effective via “z1090-1-10.55.12.x86_64 –refresh”

Previous release of GA-10 (55.10) included the following updates:

  • Deferred No Record Found unit check not working correctly for some CCW’s in AWSCKD.
  • Linux #! (known as shebang) Missing on line one of a few zPDT scripts.
  • safenet_daemons_restart deletes original lines on SLES 15.x.
  • Fixes zOS zCX startup issues.
  • Emulation of System z Networking (OSA) no longer requires root authority as it is now handled by Linux Capabilities. Linux installs this by default on Redhat and Ubuntu but is not on Suse. There you will need to install the support via “sudo zypper install libcap-progs”. You will need to reinstall the driver to make this effective via “z1090-1-10.55.08.02.x86_64 –refresh”

INSTALLATION

If installed on a clean machine (with no Safenet rpms previously installed or Safenet rpms removed and then machine rebooted), users will be able to obtain licenses right after installation. If installed on a machine that has a previous z1090 installed, A machine reboot will be required after the installation. Once machine is back up, users will be able to obtain licenses. Failure to reboot will prevent obtaining licensing with a return code of 304 – “license not available”

This release will install over any exiting zpdt driver already installed. And any other driver will install over this release. But if you re-install an older release, the Safenet rpms will go back to the bad versions and you will not obtain licenses. For downloaded zip file:

  • Unzip the downloaded release file
  • Review the Readme file (.html & .pdf) for full information and instructions
  • FTP or otherwise transfer the install file (z1090-1-10.55.12.x86_64 in the /linux directory) to your zPDT
    system in the /tmp directory
  • Switch to root (UID 0) mode: su –
  • Change to the /tmp directory: cd /tmp
  • Make the program file executable: chmod 775 z1090-1-10.55. 12.x86_64
  • Execute the z1090 installer program: ./z1090-1-10.55.12.x86_64 –refreshall
  • You will have to scroll through the license agreement then accept it. The installation should then
    complete

For CDROM or .iso distributions:

  • Burn the .iso image onto a CD as an “image”. The resulting CD should have multiple files and directories on it.
  • See the instructions in the CD Readme file (.html and .pdf) on the CD for full information
  • Copy the z1090 file to your /tmp directory:

cp /run/media/ibmsys1/zPDT_55.12/linux/z1090* /tmp (1 See note below regarding path to the CD)

  • Switch to root (UID 0) mode: su –
  • Change to the /tmp directory: cd /tmp
  • Make the program file executable: chmod 775 z1090-1-10.55.12.x86_64
  • Execute the z1090 installer program:   ./z1090-1-10.55.12.x86_64 –refreshall
  • You will have to scroll through the license agreement then accept it. The installation should then complete.

1 Different releases of Linux may automatically mount the CD at a different mount point than shown here. You may have to determine the correct path to the install file.

If you applied any IBM supplied zPDT patches to your installed system you will need to remove them before you can install this new release. Check the documentation that came with the patches for specific removal instructions.

You should test your system to verify that it is functioning properly. The zPDT release level is displayed as one of the messages early in the initialization process. It should report release 55.12.

Review the External Release Letter carefully; there are significant changes.

There are also release specific installation instructions in the External Release Letter and general installation instructions in Chapter 5 of the zPDT Guide and Reference Redbook, (SG248205) version 5.

  • Burn the .iso image onto a CD as an “image”. The resulting CD should have multiple files and directories on it.
  • See the instructions in the CD Readme file (.html and .pdf) on the CD for full information
  • Copy the z1090 file to your /tmp directory:

cp /run/media/ibmsys1/zPDT_53.05.01/linux/z1090* /tmp (1 See note below regarding path to the CD)

  • Switch to root (UID 0) mode: su –
  • Change to the /tmp directory: cd /tmp
  • Make the program file executable: chmod 775 z1090-1-9.53.05.01.x86_64
  • Execute the z1090 installer program:   ./z1090-1-9.53.05.01.x86_64
  • You will have to scroll through the license agreement then accept it. The installation should then complete.

1 Different releases of Linux may automatically mount the CD at a different mount point than shown here. You may have to determine the correct path to the install file.

If you applied any IBM supplied zPDT patches to your installed system you will need to remove them before you can install this new release. Check the documentation that came with the patches for specific removal instructions.

You should test your system to verify that it is functioning properly. The zPDT release level is displayed as one of the messages early in the initialization process. It should report release 53.05.01.

OVERVIEW

zPDT Fixpack Software Update, release date April 30th, 2019
This Fixpack release of GA-9 (53.04) includes the following updates:

  • zEDC (zEnterprise Data Compression
  • Performance (JIT compiler update)
  • Channel Measurement Facility
  • Tape Mount CCW’s
    • Updated Crypto Simulator (5.4)
    • CFCC Level 23
    • The adstop and storestop commands have been removed.
    • Update aws_sysctl to shmall and shmmax because machines now have larger memory

Fixed in this release

  • On Ubuntu Linux Z1090/Z1091_token update fails due to location of system awk binary
  • OSA device address 0000 always terminates on zPDT start-up.
  • Clientconfig_cli not working if host contains both dash and numbers.
  • zVM VSWITCH in layer 2 does not work on zVM.

The previous release of GA-8 (51.16) included the following updates:

  • Fixed CPC System Information from STSI Instruction as it was displaying blanks under CPU
    Model capacity ID.
  • Fixed issue where Linux on Z RHEL 7.3 / 7.4 might fail to boot under zVM 6.3 / 6.4 with “User
    process fault: interruption code 0x60038 in libc-2.17.so”.
  • LDK licensing no longer requires 32bit bit version of glibc.
  • Locate Record Domain – Read Count fix.
  • Fixed install issue on RHEL 8.0.

 

INSTALLATION

If installed on a clean machine (with no Safenet rpms previously installed or Safenet rpms removed and then machine rebooted), users will be able to obtain licenses right after installation. If installed on a machine that has a previous z1090 installed, A machine reboot will be required after the installation. Once machine is back up, users will be able to obtain licenses. Failure to reboot will prevent obtaining licensing with a return code of 304 – “license not available”

This release will install over any exiting zpdt driver already installed. And any other driver will install over this release. But if you re-install an older release, the Safenet rpms will go back to the bad versions and you will not obtain licenses. For downloaded zip file:

  • Unzip the downloaded release file
  • Review the Readme file (.html & .pdf) for full information and instructions

OVERVIEW

zPDT Fixpack Software Update, release date February 23, 2018
This Fixpack release of GA-8 (51.10) includes the following updates:

  • ZAAPs are not allowed with ZARCH_ONLY
  • zOS stall due to constrained transactions
  • Fixed Incorrect Length Indication Suppression issue with awstape
  • Add warning message to gen2_init –remove to check server settings

  • Ubuntu install checking if patches are applied

In addition, the base GA-8 base driver (51.10) provides the following enhancements which are continued in 51.10:

  • The architecture level (that is, the z System instruction set) corresponds to IBM z14 machines. This involves significant enhancements to zPDT. This includes defaulting to zArchitecture for IPL operation.
    • A non-standard option allows IPLing in ESA/390 mode, but operation in z14 mode otherwise. This special operation is enabled through a cpuopt statement in your devmap, such as: cpuopt ZARCH_ONLY=NO
  • zPDT licenses are no longer required for zIIPs, although the zIIPs count toward the maximum of eight processors in a zPDT instance. zAAPs and IFLs require zPDT licenses. (In principle, zAAPs no longer exist with z14 machines.) The number of zIIPs cannot exceed the number of CPs.
  • CFCC Lvl 22
  • The awsckd device manager (that emulates 3380 and 3390 operation) has been reworked.
    • The awsckd device manager emulates an IBM 2107 control unit in place of the 3990 control unit in prior releases and newer CCW operations are handled correctly.
    • MIDAW operation is included
  • I/O counts are available with the awsstat command. This data can be especially useful when emulated disk volumes are spread among devices with very different performance characteristics.
  • The awsosa device manager corresponds approximately to the OSA-Express5 level.
    • The awsosa device manager supports promiscuous mode Ethernet, as needed for KVM operation.
    • Jumbo frames (up to 8992 bytes) are supported. (this requires that your network equipment from end to end   needs to support Jumbo frames. Inexpensive switches do not support Jumbo frames)
  • Deprecated commands/scripts are removed: ldk_server_config (replaced by clientconfig), LDKc_setup.sh (replaced by gen2_init).

 

This product is only available to Authorized ITC Customers. IBM Personnel and their Subcontractors are to use Resource Link.

System Configuration and Prerequisites. The supported levels of Linux must be at least the 64-bit version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.0 or greater, the 64-bit version of openSUSE 13.1 or greater, the 64-bit version of SLES 12 SP1 or greater, and Ubuntu 16.04 or greater. Earlier versions are not supported.

System Configuration and Prerequisites. The supported levels of Linux must be at least the 64-bit version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.0 or greater, the 64-bit version of openSUSE 12.1 or greater, the 64-bit version of SLES 11 SP3 or greater, and Ubuntu 16.04 or greater. Must have zVM 6.3 or greater. Earlier versions are not supported.

 

INSTALLATION

If installed on a clean machine (with no Safenet rpms previously installed or Safenet rpms removed and then machine rebooted), users will be able to obtain licenses right after installation. If installed on a machine that has a previous z1090 installed, A machine reboot will be required after the installation.
Once machine is back up, users will be able to obtain licenses. Failure to reboot will prevent obtaining licensing with a return code of 304 – “license not available”
This release will install over any exiting zpdt driver already installed. And any other driver will install over thisrelease. But if you re-install an older release, the Safenet rpms will go back to the bad versions and you will not obtain licenses.For downloaded zip file:
zPDT release 1.7 Driver 49.31.01
For downloaded zip file:

  • Unzip the downloaded release file
  • Review the Readme file (.html & .pdf) for full information and instructions
  • FTP or otherwise transfer the install file (z1090-1-7.49.31.01.x86_64 in the /linux directory) to your zPDT system in the /tmp directory
  • Switch to root (UID 0) mode: su –
  • Change to the /tmp directory: cd /tmp
  • Make the program file executable: chmod 775 z1090-1-7.49.31.01.x86_64
  • Execute the z1090 installer program: ./z1090-1-7.49.31.01.x86_64
  • You will have to scroll through the license agreement then accept it. The installation should then complete.

For CDROM or .iso distributions:

  • Burn the .iso image onto a CD as an “image”. The resulting CD should have multiple files and directories on it.
  • See the instructions in the CD Readme file (.html and .pdf) on the CD for full information
  • Copy the z1090 file to your /tmp directory:

OVERVIEW

zPDT Software Update, release date April 10, 2017.
This release of GA-7 (49.28) includes the following updates

  • Support for CFCC Level 21
  • Crypto CCA 5.3
  • 2048 Device Support
  • Support for native Ubuntu Linux (see the release letter in section 6 for this release)

In addition, the base GA-6 base driver (49.23) provides the following enhancements which are continued in 49.23.02:

  • This special fixpack updates the two Safenet rpms to fix problem where licenses cannot be obtained on
    latest Linux levels or after a Linux upgrade. In this case “token” command results in
    CPU 0, No Sentinel License Available 312
    Server Time Out
  • zPDT code was not changed or rebuilt in this fixpack.
  • Fixed a display error in the “listVtoc” command.
  • Fixed an untrusted search path issue with the “awsstart” command using the “–clean” option. Reference CWE-426.
  • Recent Linux for System z kernels fail during IPL. This occurs in Linux for System z kernels compiled for zec12 or later. These kernels require the System z Interlocked-Access Facility 2, which is represented by bit 52 in the output of the STFLE instruction. This version of zPDT has this feature.
  • Added “aws_tapeInit” stand alone utility to create an initialized tape volume. Example of command – “aws_tapeInit [volser] [path/to/file] (no man page)
  • Added “aws_tapeInsp” to print out information about the volser, header1, header2. Example of command – “aws_tapeInsp [path/to/file] (no man page)
  • Fixed a Leap Second time shift in zPDT environment.
  • Added a feature to notify designated administrator via email that token license is about to expire. Email recipients are configured by setting the environment variable: ZPDT_EXP_EMAIL with a list of email addresses. For example, “export ZPDT_EXP_EMAIL=” email address”
  • Clientconfig added the ability to add an additional BackupServer license server
  • Added “clientconfig_cli” as a command line version of clientconfig. Example – “clientconfig_cli -h” prints help.
  • The UIM Portnumber function was incorrectly adding plus 1 to an explicitly defined port number.
  • Miscellaneous changes
