Error description

  • The Windows Tivoli Storage Manager Client will successfully
    install on Windows 2003 (All versions) although it is not
    supported in 6.4.
    The future install packages for 6.4 should prevent installing
    the client on Windows 2003.
    The Windows 6.4 client install manual does not state that
    Windows 2003 was dropped from support
    in the "New for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager 6.4" section.
    The Windows 6.4 client install manual contains references for
    Windows 2003.
    Example:
    Under "Microsoft DFS file protection methods" it states:
    This feature applies to Windows Server 2003.
    Under the "Reanimate tombstone objects or restoring from a
    system state backup"
    section, it states:
    Important: Tombstone object reanimation is the only method
    available on the
    Windows Server 2003 domain controller.
    These and any other references to Windows 2003 should be
    removed.
    Initial impact: HIGH
    Affected Platform: Windows 2003
    

Local fix

  • Do not install the 6.4 client on Windows 2003.
