Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) API APARs and Backup-Archive Client APARs in V6.3.x

Data Protection for VMware requires the Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) Application Program Interface (API) package as well as the Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) Backup-Archive Client package.
Thus some APARs fixed in the API or Backup-Archive client may be relevant for Data Protection for VMware also. Both packages are available independent of the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments product.

For a complete list of APARs fixed in the Backup-Archive client, see the download information document at:
