Description

User Story

To avoid things happening like two weeks ago again, we want to have a permanent solution for running our s390x z/VM tests on a stable environment, e.g. the new storage and (later) on our new mainframe system (it's easily migrateable)

Acceptance Criteria

AC1: set up z/VM 6.3 (or even 6.4) on an LPAR running on our zEC12 Mainframe with disks on the DS8870
AC2: configure guests according to the requirements of QA SLE openQA automation tests on z/VM
AC3: set up guests according to additional requirements for manual testing on z/VM
AC4: integrate new system in our openQA environment

1 month ago you were explaining to mee that this is critical so do the other guys not share your concerns or what's going on? How high is the risk that SLE15 GMC validation will be impacted?

That's how it sounded to me...
I was asking 3 times in the last month but no one had any new information.
I'd be fine with just dropping this and if it pops up, add it as fast track

Blocked by limited resources... will be important when the new mainframe is set up

just out of curiosity: is that done now? I know that we will get new HW in April for Live Patching as well.

#23 Updated by mgriessmeier 2 days ago

nope, sorry, we still struggle to integrate it in the QA network.
but this is not related to Live patching HW
