We need to know what OPS/MVS releases are compatible with EOS z/OS releases.  

Also, because prod will be going from 11.6 to 13 what compatibility considerations are there?


OPS/MVS Release :   11.9  12.0  12.1  12.2  12.3  13.0 13.5 14.0

Component : OPS/MVS


Customer is running currently unsupported releases of OPS/MVS and z/OS, amongst other products.


In formulating the upgrade plan, the customer will need to consider z/OS compatibility levels, as noted below:

z/OS  Release         Compatible OPS/MVS releases   

2.2                       12.2 - 14.0  

2.1                       11.8 - 12.3

1.13                     11.7 - 12.3

1.12                     11.7 - 12.3

1.11                      11.6 - 12.0

Compatibility for currently supported releases of OPS/MVS may be found on the z/OS compatibility chart available on the Support Portal.  

Be advised that most of these releases require specific fixes for compatibility; however, if you apply ALL maintenance for a particular release then you will have the appropriate compatibility fix(es).     

Of consideration, if you plan to upgrade in multiple steps to eventually a current release, you will need to ensure compatibility at whatever release the first step in the upgrade path is to.   Additionally, it is recommended to review the various release notes for all releases that were GA in between your current release to the one that is being upgraded to.
