Error description

  • Under the 'Disabling IPv6 on an Exchange server running Windows
    2008' header in Chapter 6 of the manual, the FastBack for
    Microsoft Exchange Installation and User's Guide currently
    states:
    
    'Earlier versions of Exchange Server 2007 and MAPI are not
     compatible with IPv6. On Windows Server 2008 systems, IPv6 is
     enabled by default. Therefore, you must disable IPv6 before you
     can run Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Microsoft Exchange.
    
    The header should be updated to:
    'Disabling IPv6 on an Exchange 2007 server running Windows 2008'
    
    And the last sentence of the paragraph changed to:
    'Therefore, you must disable IPv6 before you can run Tivoli
     Storage Manager FastBack for Microsoft Exchange if you are
     running Exchange Server 2007.'
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected: 61W
    
    Initial Impact: Low
