A question about installing new OPS/MVS Software in a SYSPLEX system environment.

We are planning to implement OPS/MVS release in the near future. We run 3 different sysplexes. each containing 2 systems.   For each sysplex is it recommended to implement the new release on one system at a time or both at the same time?




If running OPS/MVS on systems over multiple sysplex configurations, upgrades to newer OPS/MVS releases can be done in any order that is convenient for the site. The only component that is common across all the systems will be communications via MSF Links. This component has no issues while communicating across systems running under multiple sysplexes at different releases.
