AFFECTED PRODUCTS AND VERSIONS:
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.1.1.0 through 5.1.1.1
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.1.0
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 4.2.0 through 4.2.2.145
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 4.1.x

REMEDIATION:

  1. Apply the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center fix pack as soon as practical. (See Latest Downloads.)
    Affected TPC Version APAR Fixed TPC Version Target Availability
    5.1.1.1
    5.1.0
    IC94119 5.1.1.2*

    * Apply WebSphere Application Server Interim Fix PM80758 until Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.1.1.2 is available. See the WebSphere Application Server security bulletin for information about downloading and applying the WAS SDK fix pack to Tivoli Integrated Portal, even after upgrading to 5.1.1.2.
    September 2013
  2. If you have downloaded and installed an IBM JRE from an older version of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, you should download it again after applying the fix pack and reinstall the IBM JRE.

    The following steps apply to the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center GUI launched via Java Web Start on remote systems.
    • Uninstall any versions of Java prior to IBM Java 6 SR13.
    • Download and install IBM Java 6 SR13 or later.
    • Launch the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center GUI using the JNLP file and Java Web Start.

    Note: Do not use the IBM JRE 1.6.0 or IBM SDK 1.6.0 links provided with the affected Tivoli Storage Productivity Center versions. Once you have upgraded your Tivoli Storage Productivity Center components to a level with the fix, you can use the links again as they will then allow you to download an updated version of IBM Java 6. Until the fix is available in a Tivoli Storage Productivity Center maintenance release, you can download the new IBM Java 6 packages directly from the IBM developerWorks web site or by contacting IBM Support.
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4
  1. Apply the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center fix pack as soon as practical. (See Latest Downloads.)
    Affected TPC Version APAR Fixed TPC Version Target Availability
    4.2.x
    4.1.x
    IC94120 4.2.2.170 (FP4) June 2013
  2. Apply embedded WebSphere Application Server fix pack 6.1.0.45 to Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication 4.2.2.4.
  3. Follow the instructions provided in the WebSphere Application Server security bulletin to apply an interim fix to the device server, replication server and Tivoli Integrated Portal components.
  4. If you have downloaded and installed an IBM JRE from an older version of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, you should download it again after applying the fix pack and reinstall the IBM JRE.

Note: If you are updating a System Storage Productivity Center (SSPC) appliance, use the IBM JRE downloaded from your upgraded Tivoli Storage Productivity Center installation, as referenced in step 4, to also update the IBM JRE on that system.
