Notes:
  • Some users have encountered problems downloading fix pack files in the past. Larger images may not download successfully through your web browser due to their size. Use an FTP client, rather than a web browser, to download files if you encounter this. A file containing the checksum values of the images is available in the Installation Instructions section below. The non-licensed fix pack files can be found in the following location.

  • Use the GNU tar program (1.14 or higher) rather than the native AIX tar program to extract files from Tivoli Storage Productivity Center installation images. The AIX tar program can truncate long file names, which may cause errors with the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center application.

    The GNU tar file archiving program can be found from the following link. http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/power/software/aix/linux/toolbox/alpha.html
