My z/VM 5.1.0 system was able to IPL without any console available. This
was all done via the SYSTEM CONFIG file FEATURES statements. Our
processor (z/990) can and most likely is re-IML'ed several times a week
to accommodate various configurations for testing. Now with z/VM 5.2.0
VM refuses to IPL without some kind of console available. I'm using the
FEATURES AUTO_IPL WARM statement in my SSYSTEM CONFIG file.
Has this option been changed from 5.1 versus 5.2? Is any one else
IPL'ing 5.2 without any consoles available?
