1. The Tool Pack client is not supported on AIX.
2. This page describes the minimum product levels that must be installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Business Service Fabric support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, testing every configuration is not possible. In general, you can install and run with minor updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible.
