IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.3 Supported Operating Systems

Preventive Service Planning


Abstract

IBM Tivoli Monitoring version 6.3 introduces a number of platform improvements which may require operating system updates.

Content

IBM Tivoli Monitoring version 6.3 introduces a number of platform improvements which may require operating system updates. It is important that you ensure your systems meet these requirements prior to installing or updating your installation.

A number of platforms previously supported by IBM Tivoli Monitoring version 6.2.x are no longer supported by version 6.3. However these platforms will remain supported by version 6.2.x. agents connected to version 6.3 infrastructure. Also for no longer supported server platforms, support will remain utilizing version 6.2.x RTEMS connecting to version 6.3 HUB TEMS. See the "IBM Tivoli Monitoring coexistence and interoperability" section of the Installation and Setup Guide for detailed information.

The following table shows platforms that are no longer supported by IBM Tivoli Monitoring version 6.3. Upgrading version 6.3 on a platform that is no longer supported can adversely effect your current installation and should not be attempted.

Notes:
1. Do not install 630 OS agent if running version 6.2.3 server components i.e. Monitoring Server, Portal Server or Warehouse Proxy and Summarization and Pruning Agents as this will break compatibility of embedded components.

The following table shows supported platforms for IBM Tivoli Monitoring version 6.3. Please ensure that your system meets any requirements listed, prior to Installing/Upgrading on these platforms to version 6.3 to avoid any adverse effects to current installation or failures for new installations.
