This document describes the software and firmware stack validated for the IBM Smart Analytics System 7700.
IBM Smart Analytics System Support strongly recommends that you remain on a validated software and firmware stack for an IBM Smart Analytics System environment. The software and firmware levels within a validated stack have been tested together by IBM. If you must deviate from a validated stack, consult the FAQ about software and firmware upgrades.
For information about previous stacks, see: Version history of the validated stack for the IBM Smart Analytics System 7700.
The latest IBM Smart Analytics System 7700 fix pack is 188.8.131.52. See the IBM Smart Analytics System 7700 Fix Pack 184.108.40.206 readme document for information about the fix pack contents and instructions for installation.

- The IBM Smart Analytics System 7700 Enterprise Software bundle also includes entitlements to the following products:
IBM Data Studio 3.2; Mashup Center 2.0; and WebSphere MQSeries 7.0.1.
These products are not part of the installed, preconfigured, and validated IBM Smart Analytics System 7700 stack. If you choose to install one or more entitled products, refer to the following technote when planning your implementation and validation project: "Can I install additional software on an IBM Smart Analytics System (formerly known as BCU)?"
- All software is 64-bit unless otherwise indicated. All DB2 features must be at the same level as the ESE software.
- For software stack information about IBM Smart Analytics System 7700 Business Intelligence (BI) Software and IBM Smart Analytics System 7700 Information Integration Software, see the October 3, 2014 entry in Version history of the validated stack for the IBM Smart Analytics System 7700.
 Starting with fix pack 220.127.116.11, DB2 Performance Expert is uninstalled and replaced with Optim Performance Manager Extended Edition for DB2, Linux, and Windows.
 Remote Support Manager for Storage is updated from version 2.7.2 to 2.8.4 to be compatible with the new DS3500 controller firmware. The new version must be installed manually. It is not installed through a fix pack.
 This upgrade scenario pertains to systems without a warehouse applications module. If you choose to upgrade DB2 ESE to version 10.1 FP4, you must also upgrade InfoSphere Warehouse to version 10.1. InfoSphere Warehouse software cannot be upgraded without upgrading the DB2 software first. To upgrade systems with a warehouse applications module, call IBM Support for assistance.
