IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly Tivoli Storage Manager) Supported Devices for Linux


IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly Tivoli Storage Manager) Supported Devices for Linux

 

Latest Fix Level May Be Required

New devices added to this list will require the specified fix level. If you are a standard licensed customer that has purchased the appropriate device support and need this device fix level, download the device fix from our Server Maintenance page.

Notice

The platform fields in the table below for Linux (Redhat and SUSE) identify the IBM Spectrum Protect server platforms and minimum fix level required to support the device. Some devices may require advanced device support. Refer to the table legend. When either a unique level is specified such as 7.1.0 or base level is specified, it indicates that support for that device exists starting at that level and for all follow on levels or releases. When "Base," is specified, the following base level is assumed. The base levels ( minimum fix level required to support the device ) are: Version 6, Release 3, Mod 0, Fix Level 00.

SCSI, Fibre Chanel, and SAS

We support SCSI, Fibre Channel, and SAS connections to all of the devices on this device list as long as the connection is supported by the hardware vendor.

See Technote 1396706 for information on platforms on which SAS devices are supported.

SAN device mapping and SAN discovery are supported on Linux. For information about supported HBAs and required HBA drivers for SAN device mapping, see Technote 1193154 .

Device Drivers Supported

IBM Spectrum Protect for Linux Server supports the following device drivers:

The IBM Spectrum Protect device driver has different code paths for Libraries and Drives. As a result if a Library is supported by the IBM Spectrum Protect device driver then any IBM Spectrum Protect supported drive will be supported in that library as long as the hardware vendor supports that combination of hardware. This is true for Tape and Optical. For example, if a library is supported in 6.3.4 and a drive is supported in 7.1.0 the drive will be supported in the library in 7.1.0. If a drive is supported in 6.3.4 and a library is supported in 7.1.0 the drive will be supported in the library in 7.1.0.

How to obtain defect support

For devices and integrations validated through Ready for IBM Storage, initial support is provided by the software vendor or hardware provider. 

Please contact IBM Tape Support for situations related to the following products:

Please contact IBM Spectrum Protect Support for the following:

For hardware issues, the appropriate device vendors should be engaged for assistance.

Note: It is recommended that the customer open a ticket with the hardware vendor first, before contacting IBM Spectrum Protect Support. This way, in cases where the problem is determined to be related to an IBM component (LTO tape drive or IBM tape device driver), the hardware library vendor will already have support contacts within the IBM Tape organization.

For IBM Virtual Tape Library (VTL) issues, support will be handled by the appropriate IBM VTL Support team.

IBM Support (Tape, IBM Spectrum Protect, and VTL) can be reached at 1-800-IBM-SERV. Follow the prompts to report either a hardware or software problem as categorized above.
