Download Description

What's New in 5.3.5.x?

Notes:
  • Version 5.3.5.0 was withdrawn due to upgrade problems and has been replaced by version 5.3.5.1
  • Use the GNU tar program (1.14 or higher) rather than the native AIX tar program to extract files from the IBM Spectrum Control installation images. The AIX tar program can truncate long file names, which may cause errors with the IBM Spectrum Control application.

Prerequisites

IBM Spectrum Control V5.3.5.1 can be applied as a new installation or as an upgrade to IBM Spectrum Control 5.3.x, 5.2.x or Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.2.x. If you are applying this as an upgrade, your existing license will be transferred. If you are doing a new installation, a license is required and is included on Passport Advantage® Online.
