Planning information

Customer responsibilities

Physical planning is a customer responsibility. Detailed planning information is in the IBM System Storage TS7600 ProtecTIER - TS7650 & TS7650G Publications CD-ROM LCD7-4788 (part number 46X8481).

You are responsible for downloading or obtaining from IBM, and installing designated Machine Code (microcode, basic input/output system code (called BIOS), utility programs, device drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM machine) and other software updates in a timely manner from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides. You may request IBM to install Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Cable orders

Fibre Channel cables are required to attach the TS7650 Appliance (3958 Model AP1) or a TS7650G Server (3958 Model DD4) to various server adapters. The cables can be customer supplied or ordered with the TS7650 or TS7650G with feature number 6025.

25 Meter LC/LC Fibre Channel Cable (#6025):

This feature provides a 25 meter (82 ft.) 50.0/125 micrometer short wavelength multimode fiber-optic cable with LC duplex connectors on both ends.


Note: This cable is for attaching a TS7650 or TS7650G (that has an LC duplex connector) to switches, disk subsystem (3958 DD4), or hosts with LC duplex Fibre Channel connectors.

Security, auditability, and control

This product uses the security and auditability features of host hardware, host software, and application software to which it is attached.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
