Interoperability tables

The level of support provided for the products and components listed in the interoperability tables covers all the shown versions.

In the tables in this section the following acronyms are used:

AIDA AI Data Advisor
DA IBM Workload Scheduler dynamic agent
DDM IBM Workload Scheduler dynamic domain manager or backup dynamic domain manager
DM IBM Workload Scheduler domain manager
DWC Dynamic Workload Console
FTA IBM Workload Scheduler fault-tolerant agent
MDM IBM Workload Scheduler master domain manager or backup master domain manager
ZWS Agent  IBM Z Workload Scheduler Agent

IBM Workload Scheduler no longer supports TLS V1.0 and TLS V1.1. Only TLS V1.2 is supported and enabled by default in version 10.1 and later. This enhancement ensures a higher security level for SSL communication. Ensure that all agents connecting to a master domain manager version 10.1 or later use TLS 1.2.

Dynamic Workload Console: compatibility

Compatibility is supported on the latest available fix pack for each release listed in the table:

MDM
DDM
DWC 10.1
10.1, 9.5 FP2 and later, 9.4
10.1, 9.5 FP2 and later

AI Data Advisor (AIDA): compatibility

Compatibility is supported on the latest available fix pack for each release listed in the table:

MDM
DDM DWC
AIDA 10.1
10.1
10.1 10.1

Compatibility scenarios and limitations

You are strongly recommended to maintain all IBM Workload Scheduler components at the latest fix pack level as regular maintenance activity. Keeping your environment consistent also ensures you can implement the new features available with each new release.

If you are upgrading from version 9.5 to version 10.1.0, you can perform both a parallel and a direct upgrade. If you are upgrading from version 9.4 to version 10.1.0, you can perform a parallel upgrade. For more information, see Upgrading from the CLI.

 Environment with agents at version 10.1 

If you are using the composer command line of the agent, the following limitation applies:
•    The composer command at version
10.1 works correctly with master domain managers at version 9.5 and later.

Environment with agents at version 9.4 and master domain managers at version 10.1

The following consideration applies:

•    After renaming resources or prompts from a master domain manager at version 10.1, you cannot reference nor use them on agents at version 9.4.

Fix packs released for this version of the product

Software limitations and problems, and their workarounds

The following are software limitations and problems that might affect IBM Workload Scheduler, and their workarounds (when available):

 
Solution Manager: Wrong filter for Job Monitoring setup
If you use a workstation as a filter in the plan, the search returns no results.
If the workstation is deleted or a wildcard is used, the jobs in the plan are correctly found.
Folder management limitations
Information about some limitations of the folder management are available at IBM Workload Scheduler Version 9.5 Release Notes.
Compatibility problem when switching the event processor to a back-level backup master domain manager (version 9.4)
Running a switcheventprocessor command on a backup master domain manager at version 10.1 when the master domain manager is at version 9.4, might cause event rules to stop working on agents. 
Problem scenario
Your environment comprises a master domain manager at version 9.4 and a backup master domain manager at version 10.1.
If you switch the event processor from the master domain manager (version 9.4) to the backup master domain manager (version 10.1) and restart Liberty or run a planman deploy -scratch command, agents receive empty event rules.
Solution
Run a switcheventprocessor command to switch the event processor back to the master domain manager (version 9.4) and run a planman deploy -scrath command to deploy all non-draft rules existing in the database.
Best practice
Before switching the event processor, ensure both the master domain manager and backup master domain manager are at version 10.1 and the FINAL job stream has completed its first run at version 10.1.
Limitations for dataimport and dataexport utilities
On Windows operating systems, the dataimport and dataexport utilities do not work. To work around this problem, use composer extract to extract the definitions and composer add or replace to import them.
On Linux operating systems, if you specify a directory that does not already exist, the directory is created with wrong permissions. If the directory is existing, ensure the twsuser user has write rights on this directory.

Documentation updates

In the Planning and Installation manual, section Reference, add the following commands:

uninstall
Use this command to uninstall the File Proxy.
fileproxystop
Use this command to stop the File Proxy.

The unistall command syntax is as follows:

UNIX

./uninstall -inst_dir installation_directory [-lang language]

WINDOWS

uninstall.exe -inst_dir installation_directory [-lang language]

where

-inst_dir is the directory where the File Proxy is installed.

-lang is the language in which the messages returned by the command are displayed

The command removes all data related to the File Proxy and leaves the data_dir unchanged.

The fileproxystop command syntax is as follows:

UNIX

./fileproxystop

WINDOWS

fileproxystop.exe

In the Planning and Installation manual, section Reference, File Proxy installation - fileproxyinst script topic, note that the following parameters are required, even though they are documented as optional:

inst_dir
acceptlicense

All other updates to the IBM Workload Scheduler documentation that are required for version 10.1.0 are included in the editions of the publications in online IBM Documentation.
