Technote (FAQ)


Question

Which version of the Administration Center manages which version of the Tivoli® Storage Manager server?

Answer

Tip: The product now known as IBM Spectrum Protect™ was named IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager in releases earlier than Version 7.1.3. To learn more about the rebranding transition, see http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21963634.

* The Administration Center is not delivered with Tivoli Storage Manager server V7.1 or later. Instead, the Operations Center is delivered. The Operations Center provides web and mobile access to status information about the Tivoli Storage Manager environment. You can use the Operations Center to monitor multiple servers and complete some administrative tasks. The interface also provides web access to the Tivoli Storage Manager command line.

You can continue to use Administration Center V6.3 with the required interim fixes with the Tivoli Storage Manager server V7.1 or later. However, you cannot access features that were introduced in the V7.1 or later versions of the Tivoli Storage Manager server from Administration Center. 

For general information about the Operations Center, see the Operations Center links in the "Related information" section on this page. For information about how to install and open the Operations Center, see the IBM Spectrum Protect product documentation at
