Mainframe VM Product Manager

Issue/Introduction

 We're going to be migrating a number of of ZVM 7.1 systems to ZVM 7.2 in the near future. Other than the text decks for VMSECURE and the VMNDLK72 Text file, are there any PTFs we should have applied to the other products in the suite? We've been rolling out service recently so we should be reasonably current on the various products. Any known issues? A number of these LPARs are going to be configured with 4TB of main storage. Any concerns about that? 

Environment

Release : 1.2

Component : VM Product Manager

Resolution

Here's a summary of what's required for z/VM 7.2 support for the VM:Manager products;

First, apply PTF SO10980 for the VM Product Manager which is RSU-1901. 
Next, apply PTF SO15166, version 4 of the Directory Reader and System Diagnose code, also required for z/VM 7.2.

For VM:Secure, apply VM:Secure RSU-2001 available in PTF SO11972 and apply VM:Secure PTFs SO13865 and SO14443 on top which are specific to z/VM 7.2.

Here's the link to VM:Secure 3.2 solutions where you'll find downloads for all of the mentioned solutions/PTFs:
