6. Tivoli Storage Manager Server does not support mixed generations of optical drives and media such as UDO and MO within the same library partition.

7. On AIX, Tivoli Storage Manager supports IBM 3996 only on AIX 5.3 and above. (The IBM hardware announcement will state that 3996 is supported on AIX 5.2.0 and later.)



Library and drive may require different minimum Tivoli Storage Manager levels. Therefore, ensure that both library and drive hardware are supported. See " Supported Devices for AIX, HP-UX, Solaris and Windows" or " Supported Devices for Linux" for minimum supported version levels and platforms for these devices.

More information regarding device configuration is available in the Tivoli Storage Manager Administrator's Guide, which can be found in the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager information center.
