All Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) for Virtual Environments 7.1.2 maintenance packages can be accessed using the PTF distribution Web site.

However, these PTF packages require an existing V7.1.x installation on the machine before applying them because the PTF maintenance packages do not contain the license enablement files required for use of the component.
