Notes:

Beginning with Version 7.1.3, IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager is now IBM Spectrum Protect™. Some applications such as the software fulfillment systems and IBM License Metric Tool use the new product name. However, the software and its product documentation continue to use the Tivoli Storage Manager product name. To learn more about the rebranding transition, see technote 1963634.

3. ELEMent=AUTODetect in DEFINE/UPDATE DRIVE command is supported.

4. Automatic cleaning via the CLEANFREQuency=ASNEEDED option is supported.

5. The libraries are supported with any LTO drives that are supported by IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Server. The library and drive configuration must be supported by the hardware vendor.

6. The following LTO drives are available
    Ultrium 7 support requires IBM Spectrum Protect Server 7.1.3 or later

    Ultrium 8 support requires IBM Spectrum Protect Server 8.1.4 or later
    Ultrium M8 media is not supported
7. The IBM device driver is required for IBM LTO Ultrium drives. IBM device drivers are available at IBM Fix Central. Choose the following options from the drop-down menus.
  • Product Group -> System Storage
  • System Storage -> Tape systems
  • Tape systems -> Tape drivers and software
  • Tape drivers and software -> Tape device drivers
  • Platform -> Select the platform for the device driver

8. See Technote 1396706 for SAS support information.



Library and drive may require different minimum TSM 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.
