In this issue, I’ll cover the following:
In the last TUNING Letter, I suggested that people look at WSC Flash W98044, which recommends that multi-system customers be on OS/390 R2.5 by January 1, 2000. At SHARE this week, most of the speakers at the IBM OS/390 sessions are stressing the point that multi-system shops (this can be simply multi-LPARs) currently running R2 or R3 be sure to have OS/390 R6 ordered by March 6, 1999. You don’t have to install it before 2000, just have it available to install before you migrate to a later release.
I’ve included the text of the announcement that IBM has sent to every OS/390 customer. But due to the short time frame, I think you should be aware of this now and make sure that it’s routed to the people who can make it happen!
