Technote (FAQ)


Question

Which levels of NetApp Data ONTAP do the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) 6.2, 6.3, 6.4 , 7.1 Backup-Archive clients support with its NetApp snapshot-assisted progressive incremental functionality ('incremental -snapdiff' command)?

Answer

This table lists which levels of the 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, and 7.1 IBM TSM Windows, AIX, and Linux x86/x86_64 Backup-Archive clients are supported with which levels of NetApp Data ONTAP for the NetApp snapshot-assisted progressive incremental functionality.

TSM B/A Client Levels Platforms Supported NetApp Data ONTAP levels
6.2.0 and 6.2.1 Windows, AIX 64-bit 7.3.0, 7.3.1, and 7.3.2
6.2.x (where x is 2 or higher) Windows, AIX 64-bit, and Linux x86 7.3.y (where y is 0 or higher)*, 8.0.1
6.3 Windows, AIX 64-bit, and Linux x86_64 7.3.y (where y is 0 or higher)*, 8.0.1
6.4 Windows, AIX 64-bit, and Linux x86_64 7.3.y (where y is 0 or higher)*, 8.1.1**
7.1 Windows, AIX 64-bit, and Linux x86_64 7.3.y (where y is 0 or higher)*, 8.1.1**
7.1.x Windows, AIX 64-bit, and Linux x86_64 7.3.y (where y is 0 or higher)*,
8.1.x (or higher)
8.2.x (or higher)
7.1.2 (or higher) Windows, AIX 64-bit, and Linux x86_64 8.1.y 7-mode only
8.2.y 7-mode and c-mode

where y is 0 or higher
* Note: Unless otherwise noted, snapshot assisted backup is only supported for supported versions of ONTAP running in 7-mode. Currently c-mode is only supported on ONTAP version 8.2.y where y is 0 or higher.

*Note: With 6.2.2 or higher clients, TSM recommends using NetApp Data ONTAP level 7.3.3 or higher levels of 7.3 (7.3.y where y=3 or higher), due to the Unicode support at those levels of Data ONTAP.

**Note: Support for backing up vFiler volumes requires ONTAP version 8.1.1 or greater.
