ILMT and TAD4D Enablement in Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3 (EOL)

Preventive Service Planning


Abstract

Tivoli Storage Manager is enabled for discovery by the IBM License Metric Tool and Tivoli Asset Discovery for Distributed products.

Note: IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) 6.3 reached End-Of-Life (EOL) on April 30, 2017. There will be no support extensions for TSM Version 6.3 products. See here http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21700380 which releases are supported

Content

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition, IBM System Storage Archive Manager, and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks (Storage Agent) are enabled for discovery by the following products:


IBM License Metric Tool is a no-charge tool which helps IBM Passport Advantage® customers maintain an up-to-date inventory of the IBM distributed software assets in your IT infrastructure. It allows you to ensure compliance with IBM full and subcapacity licensing requirements by calculating the number of PVUs available to installed Passport Advantage PVU-based software, including supported virtualized servers. Additional information about this tool is available here: http://www.ibm.com/software/products/en/licensemetrictool

Tivoli Asset Discovery (for Distributed)helps customers identify their distributed hardware and software inventory and use the information to minimize compliance risks and reduce usage related cost. Additional information about this product is available here: http://www.ibm.com/software/tivoli/products/asset-discovery-distributed/

Though neither tool / product is a prerequisite to using Tivoli Storage Manager products, the Tivoli Storage Manager family of products is enabled for the benefit of customers who also use IBM License Metric Tool or Tivoli Asset Discovery for Distributed to obtain information.

The enablement process involves the tagging of separately installable product components and has evolved over time. Though the same component may be delivered with more than one product, there is only a single enablement tag associated with a given component. Additionally, the single enablement tag is associated with all platforms and operating systems associated with that specific component. Therefore, the physical tag file name, and the component name displayed through either the IBM License Metric Tool and Tivoli Assert Discovery for Distributed products, may not be as you might expect.

The following tables show are intended to better enable you to determine the association between the Tivoli Storage Manager software installed on your system and how ILMT and Tad4D represent that software. The tables include:
    • the tag file name
    • the component name displayed by ILMT or TAD4D
    • the component version associated with the specific tag
    • additional comments
