System requirements: Hardware and software requirements for IBM InfoSphere Global Name Management Version 4.2


This page describes the minimum product levels to install before opening a problem report with the IBM InfoSphere Global Name Management support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, every possible configuration cannot be tested. In general, you can install and run with updates, such as fix packs, to supported product releases (not necessarily significant new product versions), if those updates are forward compatible.
