What are specific issues related to supporting Linux as a guest operating system?
The VM (Virtual Machine) operating system
What sort of things do you need to do to effectively support guest operating systems (z/OS, OS/390, VSE, Linux) in virtual machines?
SNA support is supplied by VM/VTAM.
VM NJE support is provided by VM RSCS, and supports a range of communications media, including NJE over IPv4 support.
As of z/VM 4.4, the native VM TCPIP stack does not support IPv6, and IBM has announced no plans to support IPv6 in the future
IP version 6 is not yet supported natively on VM. Linux guests provide a way to tunnel IPv6 packets via IPv4, however this support is limited and experimental.
IP version 4 is supported by the VM TCPIP product. What IP services are available for this code?
What network protocols and software are supported on VM?
What is the best practice for setting up your VM system to work well in a network environment, and what are the tools and practices that provide reliable, stable network services?
