VM:Secure for z/VM

Issue/Introduction

I am starting the z/VM upgrade process from 7.1 to 7.2.  I downloaded the VMSecure RSU and am trying to install it.  I don't know what I have changed, but VMANAGER is having a problem accessing any disks (see below).  I am just starting the process so I have not changed anything yet, but obviously I have changed/broken something. I am continuing to research and see what I may have done, but I thought you may be able to help me.
