Follow the instructions to apply an interim fix for IBM Spectrum Protect Plus:

  • To update the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus virtual appliance, complete the following steps:

    1. From a supported web browser, access the administrative console by entering the following address:
      https://hostname:8090/
      Where hostname is the IP address of the virtual machine where the application is deployed.
    2. In the login window, select one of the following authentication types in the Authentication Type list:
      • IBM Spectrum Protect Plus
        Note: To log in as an IBM Spectrum Protect Plus user with SYSADMIN privileges, enter your administrator username and password. If you log in by using the admin user account, you are prompted to reset the username and password. You cannot reset the username to admin, root, or test.
      • System (recommended)
        Note: To log in as a system user, enter the server admin password. The default password is sppDP758. You are prompted to change this password during the first login.
    3. Click Updates and Hotfix Management to open the updates management page.
      Note: If you have access to the FTP site, public.dhe.ibm.com, the administrator console checks for available updates automatically and lists them.
    4. Click Run Update to install the available updates. Note: If you want to run online updates but can see only the offline mode, check your internet connectivity and reattempt to access the FTP site, public.dhe.ibm.com.
      • When the updates are installed successfully, go to Step 6.
      • If you are planning to install an update from an ISO file, click Click Here to run the offline updates. Go to Step 5.
    5. Choose the update that you want to run, as follows: Note: You can select only one update file at a time.
      When the update completes, the virtual machine where the application is deployed automatically restarts.
      Important:  After the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus update completes, you must update any external vSnap and VADP proxy servers in your environment.
      • Online mode: Updates are listed automatically in the repository when they are made available. Click Run Update.
      • Offline mode: Click Choose file to browse for the downloaded file. The file has an iso or rpm extension like this example, <filename>.iso. Click Upload Update Image (or) Hotfix.
    6. Clear the browser cache.
      HTML content from previous versions of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus might be stored in the cache.
    7. Start the updated version of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus.
    8. In the navigation pane, click Jobs and Operations, and then click the Schedule tab. Find the jobs that you paused.
