Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) API APARs and Backup-Archive Client APARs in 6.4.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,
