Introduction:

The documentation for the CA Mainframe Connector for Linux does not list any platform other than z/VM.   

However, the customer would like to implement it in a different environment.  Specifically, to be used in conjunction with the Linux Connector (LXC) option from CA-OPS.

 

Question:

Can the CA Mainframe Connector for Linux on z Systems run under KVM?

Environment:
Any supported release of z/Linux
Answer:

The Linux Agent can run under KVM. 

However, RO92880 must be applied to prevent an indefinite loop when the UNSOLMSG server attempts to establish the name of a Linux client.     

Additional Information:

·        Refer to the CA Common Services r14.1 Documentation wiki for details on installing  the CA Mainframe Connector for Linux on z Systems.

·        Additionally, be sure to download and install PTF RO92880.
