Hardware and Software Requirements: Version 4.1.3 IBM Spectrum Protect™ Snapshot
Preventive Service Planning
This document details the Hardware & Software requirements for IBM Spectrum Protect™ Snapshot V4.1.3.
Tip: Beginning with Version 4.1.3, Tivoli Storage FlashCopy® Manager is now IBM Spectrum Protect™ Snapshot. Some applications such as the software fulfillment systems and IBM License Metric Tool use the new product name. However, the software and its product documentation continue to use the Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager product name. To learn more about the rebranding transition, see http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21963634.
IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot 4.1.3 is comprised of multiple components which support a variety of operating systems, databases, and applications. Due to the large volume of requirements information across the 10 product components, the HW & SW requirements for this product have been separated into multiple documents in order to enable you to focus on only the requirements that apply to your application environment. Each IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot component (except the MMC Snapin and VSS Requestor) supports a specific application environment as described in the table.
This document will provide a list of the components included in the IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot product, a description of the environment supported by each component, and a link to the HW & SW requirements for each component.
