We will spend some time to discuss what MVMUA needs to do to better serve the members of the VM, VSE, MVS, and LINUX community. I have gotten some very good "suggestions" and "observations" from some of the members and we will discuss those. Eric has talked to some IBM'rs at SHARE and they gave some more "suggestions and observations" and we will discuss those as well. I even have an idea of mine we will discuss.
Bill Holder - IBM - Accessing memory above the 2 GB line
An overview of 64-Bit Exploitation Support in z/VM 5.2.0,
with a description of the constraints limited storage exploitation in previous releases, how those constraints are
overcome in z/VM 5.2.0, and a brief description of internal design changes, external changes, and a few examples of results in terms of changes in performance and scalability.

Tracy J Bolinda - IBM -Networking with z/VM Guest LANS and the z/VM Virtual Switch
Did you know that you can create virtual LAN segments that connect to your z/VM guests together without the need for all those messy point-to-point connections? And did you know you can bridge those LAN segments to your external LAN's without creating new subnets? In this session you will hear the latest on how, and when, to use z/VM guest LANS and the z/VM Virtual Switch. We will talk about z/VM's support for IEEE virtual LANS (VLANs) and ways to monitor guest traffic.
Converting your existing point-to-point or z/VM Guest LAN configurations to the z/VM Virtual Switch can appear to be a daunting task, but it is easier than you think. Here we will talk about how to move subnet routing off of your z/VM system and onto your networking hardware where it belongs. We will even talk about how to create IEEE VLANs on a Cisco switch. This presentation is a great way to bridge the "buzzword gap" between yourself and your network administrators.
