Please explain exactly what you want to know - which is not covered in the relevant manuals.

The actions of the subsystem are controlled entirely by the microcode supplied by IBM (or whatever manufacturer you buy hardware from).

As for the OS which processes the microcode - who cares if it works, because there is nothing to do except call the engineers if it all goes pear shaped.

Then troll through the DS8100 technical manuals (although these are probably not available for public consumption) or contact IBM.

Just interested in why you need to know this as it will never be anything that you are allowed to go near, let alone touch.

Not a title I am familiar with. Usually in IT, admin = pen pusher.

Well, I've been in storage management for 20+ years and have never needed to know this, nor have any of the sysprogs that I have worked closely with.

If it is the level of microcode that you want to know, this was usually handled by the hardxware management or the sysprog groups. Go ask them.

You almost certainly are going to have to contact either your hardware vendor (who may or may not know), or most likely IBM to find out the answer to your question. If you do contact IBM, be prepared to have your organization, as well as yourself, sign some pretty strong non-disclosure documents to get access to material that IBM does not want publicized.

Finally, what benefit derives from knowing this information? It's not something that is much used and is very specific to the hardware.

Ramakrishna Aitha: did you not read the posts? We do not know, probably could not tell you if we did know, and you must contact IBM to get this information.

Hello,

Which you have convinced yourself that you need. You most likely don't but you believe you do.

If you explain why you believe this is needed, maybe someone can help.

As others have mentioned, this isn't needed/used by system and storage admins.

I saw an IBM PowerPoint about the DS8300 and it had the penguin logo. Is that Linux?
