Product documentation


Abstract

This document contains system requirements for IBM WebSphere Application Deployment Manager Server V6.1 on IBM AIX.

Content

Back to all V6.1 detailed system requirements

This document describes the minimum product levels that need to be installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Application Server Support team.

In general, you can install and run with updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible.

The following list identifies the products that are supported when WebSphere Application Server runs on the AIX operating system. It is not necessary to run these products on the same machine or operating system as WebSphere Application Server.
