IBM Storage Notes:
1 In order to run Remote Pair Flashcopy®, Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication requires RPQ 8S1037 and microcode level 64.25.xx. To request this RPQ please contact your IBM Marketing Representative or Authorized IBM Business Partner.
2 Specify a user ID and password of an administrator on the cluster that has sufficient privileges to maintain the SSH keys.
3 With Data ONTAP SMI-S Agent, performance monitoring is supported for volumes and front end ports. It is not supported at the top storage system level.
4 The Open HyperSwap functionality for Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication requires a minimum version of R5.1 with DS8700. It also requires SDDPCM driver 3.0.0, which is available for download. The Open HyperSwap solution for Tivoli Productivity Center for Replication will be deprecated in a future release.
5 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center communicates with DS8000, XIV, SAN Volume Controller, and Storwize family storage systems through their native interfaces rather than with CIM agents. The native interfaces have replaced any prior use of CIM agents as data sources for these storage systems.
6 Support for XIV enhanced performance metrics is available starting with XIV 10.2.4.
7 The TIMECOUNTERSUPPORTED variable for the SMI-S Provider for E-Series is set to FALSE by default. If that has been set to TRUE to collect response time metrics, the performance monitoring jobs may experience data continuity (HWNPM2124) errors and discard some data records. If you would like to use TIMECOUNTERSUPPORTED set to TRUE, you should use the latest supported SMI-S Provider for E-Series version.
8 Support for Data ONTAP 8 is limited to volumes with a maximum size of 1 TB.
9 Support for SAN Volume Controller, Storwize V7000 or V7000U R7.2 with the Optimization functionality requires a minimum level of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.2.1.
10 A minimum level of R7.2.0.4 is recommended to avoid errors that may occur during the probe jobs.
11 Support for N-Series N6000 devices requires a minimum version of Data ONTAP SMI-S Agent 5.1. Failures with occur with version 4.1 and it should not be used.
12 The Easy Tier status of "Balanced" reported by SAN Volume Controller and Storwize family devices is displayed as "Active" in Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.2.2. For more information view the Limitations and known issues document.
13 Support for Storwize V3500, V3700 and V5000 with the Optimization functionality requires a minimum level of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.2.3.

Note: Starting with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.2, tape storage systems are no longer supported.

By Vendor:
Dell, EMC, Engenio, Fujitsu, Hitachi Data Systems, Hitachi Limited, HP, NetApp, Silicon Graphics, StorageTek, Sun, 3PAR

Vendor-Acquired Storage Notes:
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center is SMI-S 1.1.0, 1.0.2 and 1.0.3 certified by SNIA for Disk functionality and supports the functions of providers that have also been certified at these levels. SMI-S standards higher than SMI-S 1.1 are backward compatible. Efforts are made to test many of these provider versions to provide confirmation that the results with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center will be as expected. The function within Tivoli Storage Productivity Center will depend on the SMI-S version, provider version, firmware level on the device and which subprofiles have been certified. The SNIA Conformance Testing Program Web site has details to identify available providers for the vendors listed below, along with details about their SMI-S versions, supported devices, and which profiles have been certified. Data Manager function, such as LUN correlation is also available with these devices.

See provider documentation to confirm device and firmware support. Not all provider versions are supported for all devices available from a particular vendor. The SNIA CTP Web site also provides information about devices supported for particular provider versions.

All providers will do basic reporting but only some provide performance management information.

The non-IBM storage systems listed below are *not* supported with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication except where noted.
