I just received word that the SHARE ADSM/VM Version 3 requirement has
been returned with a status of "Recognized". Also, 3M recently received a
written response from IBM to our inquiry about ADSM/VM V3.

   "At this time, there are no plans to develop ADSM Server Version 3
    for VM. ... Many requests for version 3 support on VM have been
    submitted and IBM will continue to consider these customer
    requirements in decisions related to future support of the VM

Clearly the requirement for ADSM/VM V3 is well understood by IBM. ADSM/VM
customers need to continue to voice their concerns at national and local
user groups, and add their names to the concurring parties list within
the IBM REQUESTS system (REQ00066512). Perhaps I'm being optimistic, but
when the business case is made, IBM will come through for us.
