In the table:

  • The levels shown under the minimum level heading are considered stable release levels. Clients running at or above these levels may remain in place unless an update is required for specific fixes or new function.
  • The levels shown under the recommended level heading are considered stable release levels that have accumulated a reasonable amount of runtime in Client environments, and/or contain critical fixes.  Clients planning to upgrade code should choose a level from this column, unless a higher level is required for specific fixes or new function.
To determine which vulnerabilities are identified and fixed in a IBM Spectrum Protect backup-archive client level, check the section "How critical is this fix?" in the corresponding FTP download doc.
