Copy Services Manager on DS8000 HMC
IBM Copy Services Manager (CSM) is a replication management solution based on the Tivoli® Productivity Center for Replication (TPC-R) technology.
CSM inherits all the TPC-R capabilities and continues to provide Copy Services solutions for most IBM storage offerings.
The IBM DS8880, starting with firmware Release 8.1, Licensed Machine Code (LMC) 8.8.10.xx.xx, includes CSM for DS8000® pre-installed on the Hardware Management Control (HMC). CSM simply needs to be activated, provided that you ordered the CSM feature code as part of your DS8000 system configuration.
Simpler LDAP authentication capability for DS8000
CSM as installed on the HMC, or acquired separately, includes a lightweight build of the IBM Websphere Liberty server code which provides the ability to authenticate CSM users through a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). The same integrated LDAP support can be used for remote authentication of DS8000 users. Furthermore, if you simply want to take advantage of the CSM LDAP client for DS8000 LDAP authentication, the CSM license and CSM activation are not required.
