Maintenance Packages via the FTP Website for Maintenance


All IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot maintenance packages can be accessed using the FTP website for maintenance deliveries.

Maintenance update packages require an existing 8.1.x installation on the machine because the maintenance update packages do not contain the license enablement files required to use the component.
