        The features that DataPower appliances support depends on the version of WebSphere Service Registry and Repository that you use:

        • WS-Policy Attachments: Message Content Filters 1.2


      WebSphere Transformation Extender Industry Packs

        In addition to the support for EDIFACT, HL7, and X12 Industry Packs, the DataPower appliance supports the following Industry Pack:
        • WebSphere Transformation Extender Pack for FIX, versions 4.2.5 and 4.2.6

        The Low Latency Appliance (XM) does not support Industry Packs.


      Supported standards and protocols

        The "Management" standards do not state the Structure of Managed Information (SMI) version that represents the notation for SNMP MIBs.
        • SMIv1





Upgrade
    The "Determining firmware versions to download" topic provides incorrect model details for the Integration Blade XI50B. xib is the correct model designation in an XI50B firmware image. The following information is correct:
      xib6000.scrypt2
        Indicates a 6.0.0.0 image for XI50B appliances with support for the following features:
        • WebSphere JMS
        • WebSphere MQ

IBM License Metric Tool
    The license agent for the IBM License Metric Tool is available for only virtual editions of DataPower products. The command reference incorrectly documents that these commands are available for all products.





Interoperability Test Service
The start-up configuration for an appliance contains errors that the files for the iop-mgmt-key key and the iop-mgmt-cert certificate are unreadable. This key-certificate pair is for the identification credentials of the disabled Interoperability Test Service. IBM does not provide these files. You must create these files for secure communication.
  • The iop-mgmt-key key expects the dtxkey.pem file in the cert: directory.
  • The iop-mgmt-cert certificate expects the dtxcert.der file in the cert: directory.





Patterns
Although the documentation states that all appliances include predefined patterns, only 7198 and 7199 appliances contain predefined patterns. Click the product-specific link to view the uncorrected original topic: XS XG XI XB XM





IP multicast
    The following corrections apply to the documentation for the IP multicast.
    • The interface command in IP multicast mode states that the address parameter specifies the local IP address or host alias of the Ethernet interface. In addition, you can specify a host name in the address parameter.

    • The procedure to define multicast peering says to enter a local IP address or host alias in the local interface field. In addition, you can specify a host name in the local interface field.

Peer group
    The following corrections apply to the documentation for the url command in Peer group mode.
    • The documentation states that the member parameter identifies a peer group member by a URL containing an IP address or host alias, and a port. In addition, the member parameter can specify a host name.
    • The documentation states that for members of an SLM multicast peer group, it is not required to specify a port. Also, the example for the SLM multicast peer group does not specify the port. The text and the example are incorrect. A port number is required in the URL.

Web management interfaces
    The "Accessing Configuration Pattern Console" topic states that you must specify an explicit URL. To access the Configuration Pattern Console, use the following procedure:
      1. Access the WebGUI.
      2. In the navigation pane, click Pattern Console. The Configuration Pattern Console opens in a new tab or window.
    Reminder: When you have multiple WebGUI or Configuration Pattern Console sessions open, you are logged out of all sessions when you log out of any session.
