Status of IBM Installation Manager Product and Service Repositories



This flash documents the status of IBM product and service repositories that are accessed by using the IBM Installation Manager and IBM Packaging Utility during installation and upgrade of IBM products.


This flash contains status information regarding issues (downtime or expected service windows) for the IBM product and service repositories accessed through the IBM Installation Manager and Packaging Utility. We update this status page when the repositories are inaccessible (offline) and when repositories are accessible (online). We work to bring the repository access online as a high priority.
Some changes in 2022 might impact your firewall and proxies for accessing the service repositories:
