Download Description

What's New in 5.2.16?

IBM Spectrum Control 5.2.9 and higher include enhancements that might require new certificates for resources that are managed by CIM agents. These resources are typically Brocade switches and non-IBM storage systems. Until new certificates are generated, IBM Spectrum Control will be unable to monitor those resources. The changes starting with IBM Spectrum Control 5.2.9 might also affect connections to older levels of IBM System Storage® DS8000 storage systems. For more information, go to:

  • 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.


IBM Spectrum Control V5.2.16 can be applied as a new installation or as an upgrade to IBM Spectrum Control 5.2.x or Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.1.1.x and 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.
