TSAMP support for zVM on z15 and Cisco UCS environment


1) We conducted a storage system configuration assessment within IBM, and found their TSA was listed as related software. The HW configuration included z15 (zLinux), Cisco UCS (IA server). However TSAMP Offering Manager, also responded that z15, Cisco UCS is not included in the test and cannot be supported.

TSA: TSA was never tested for z15 and Cisco UCS(IA Server). Please refer the supported platform link: Supported Platforms.

2) Looking at TSA's SPCR, the only prerequisites for HW appear to be disk and memory capacity. Also, both RHEL8's zLinux and IA servers appear to be supported.
TSA: Refer the above supported platform link. I have also gone through SPCR report for TSAMP and I could not find IA servers in a supported list.

SPCR also shows hypervisor support for TSAMP stops at z/VM V6.3 which is already EOS.
Customer requires to use TSAMP on RHEL guest running on z/VM V7.2.

Customer starts system installation from Jul. 2021, therefore we need urgent validation for the support.
