If you are running a version of SVC software older than 18.104.22.168 then you will need to perform multiple upgrades to install SVC 22.214.171.124 concurrently on your cluster. Please refer to the following Concurrent Compatibility information:
SAN Volume Controller Concurrent Compatibility and Code Cross Reference SAN Volume Controller and SVC Console (GUI) Compatibility
We also recommend you refer to the following documents:
- V4.3.x Recommended Software Levels
- V4.3.x Supported Hardware List
- V4.3.x SAN Volume Controller Restrictions
To avoid potential problems, any exceptions to supported interoperability MUST be requested via an approved RPQ agreement. Please contact your IBM representative or authorized IBM Business Partner to request support.
The code is supplied as an install package and as a CD image (ISO). You only require the ISO file if you wish to burn the install package directly to CD.
Important Upgrade Information
Please ensure you have read the release note and are familiar with the following Flash Announcements before upgrading:
| IBM N series Gateways and NetApp V-Series Gateway are supported with SVC 4.1.1.x (V4.1.x Supported Hardware List)
With SVC 4.2.x or 4.3.x IBM N series Gateways and NetApp V-Series Gateway are supported via RPQ only. Please contact your IBM Service representative for details.
If you are currently using these products with SVC 4.1.1.x, do not upgrade to SVC software version 4.2.x or 4.3.x without an approved RPQ and do not add SVC Model 8G4 Storage Engines to the cluster (since doing so would require you to upgrade the software to version 4.2.x or later).
If you are already running SVC 4.2.x with IBM N series Gateways and NetApp V-Series Gateway and the relevant SVC IFIX and wish to upgrade to SVC 4.3.x, a new RPQ is required for 4.3.x.
When this support status changes, we will update the SVC support web pages with new information.

You should ensure that the cluster error log does not contain any unfixed errors prior to applying a software upgrade, since these errors may prevent a successful upgrade. Use the Service Guide or the Maintenance Procedures to fix the errors. In addition to checking the cluster error log we also strongly recommend using the SVC upgrade test utility. Contact IBM Support if you require assistance.
The vdisk mirroring feature introduced in SVC V4.3.0 requires bitmap memory to be allocated before it can be used. Click here for more information.
