IBM PowerHA SystemMirror for IBM i

Version 7.5 HA 5.1.2 PTF SI80111 (plus Language PTFs)

June 22, 2022

New Features
  • The Spectrum Virtualize (SVC) based FlashCopy automation integrated into PowerHA now includes additional automation at the target system of Geographic Mirroring, eliminating the need to manually suspend or detach the geographic mirroring replication as part of the FlashCopy process.

  • PowerHA compresses geographic mirroring data during resynchronization reducing the data transfer required. In addition, on Power10 systems, PowerHA uses the on-chip NX GZIP accelerator if the NX feature is enabled, providing hardware accelerated compression.

Enhancements
  • The Display HA Configuration Description (DSPHACFGD) command no longer requires the cluster parameter and now provides the list of configuration descriptions when prompting on the command.

  • Improved robustness of attempts to match the HyperSwap affinity as part of a cluster resource group switchover or failover operation.

Fixes
  • The public authority for service program QHASM/QHACMNA has changed from *USE to *EXCLUDE. Any users without *ALLOBJ authority may need additional authority to perform PowerHA operations.

  • Simplified the use of the Create Cluster (CRTCLU) command from any node when all nodes are at different program temporary fix (PTF) levels. With this improvement, as long as all nodes are at the same release, the CRTCLU command can be run from any node in the cluster.

  • Resolved the issue with the WRKCADMRE command failing with error CPFAA0E stating 'Library name *ALL not valid' in environments where the PowerHA release is not the same between all nodes.

  • Resolved an issue in environments where PowereHA operations failed with error CPD0032 when the default authority for the Grant Object Authority (GRTOBJAUT) is changed from *USE to *EXCLUDE.

  • Improved recovery of a Geographic Mirror session after unplanned failover. Previously the first resume after an unplanned failure could result in a CPFBA56 with reason code '0386'.

  • Issue where the Display CRG Activity (DSPCRGACT) or switchover progress monitoring displays showed a very large number, even when only a few seconds had elapsed is now fixed.

  • Resolved issue where a CHGCRG with the same recovery domain in an SVC LUN-Level switching environment could result in the disk units being unmapped from all hosts.

  • Messages have been improved to show future PowerHA versions using an x in place of the modification level. For example showing as 5.x.

  • Resolved the issue with the CRTCRG command, where the Configure takeover IP address (CFGINTNETA) parameter was not honoring a value of *USR.

  • The work with cluster resource groups screen has been improved to allow for using option 3=change primary of a CRG managed by a container when the container has a status of Inactive.

  • Issue where the Display CRG Activity (DSPCRGACT) shows a blank display in a mixed HA version environment fixed.

  • Simplified the PowerHA license error messages with messages correctly indicating what option and if the error is related to a required option not being installed, over the usage limit, or an expired grace period.

  • PowerHA has been improved so that the clearing of master key 1 is allowed if no cluster is configured on the system. In addition, versions of PowerHA saved with this enhancement applied will no longer set master key 1 at install time. Instead, PowerHA will set master key 1, if required, when a node first becomes active in a cluster.

NOTE: PTF updates SI80111 require one or more associated language PTFs. To determine if additional languages you have installed in your environment require a requisite MRI PTF, consult the table of language PTFs in the release cover letter at IBM Support.
Version 7.4 HA 4.7.2 PTF SI80035 (plus Language PTFs)

  • Improved robustness of attempts to match the HyperSwap affinity as part of a cluster resource group switchover or failover operation.

  • PowerHA has been enhanced so that planned switchovers or unplanned failovers will always use the QSYSNOMAX job queue for IASP vary on and off operations regardless of the user initiating the operation.

Fixes
  • Simplified the use the Create Cluster (CRTCLU) command from any node when all nodes are at different program temporary fix (PTF) levels. With this improvement, as long as all nodes are at the same release, the CRTCLU command can be run from any node in the cluster.
