Bucky Backup - Supported Clients

This document lists the supported clients for Bucky Backup (Lite or Enterprise).

IBM Spectrum Protect Client Support and Download

Note: IBM Spectrum Protect is the server and client that Bucky Backup is based on. IBM Spectrum Protect was formerly named Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM). Starting with version 8.1 IBM removed references to TSM from most of the documentation. However, the client file names, locations, and registry entries still may not have changed.

These operating systems are officially supported by Bucky Backup and their recommended client versions. This does not mean that other operating systems do not have clients, or will not work. Instead, this is the list of operating system and TSM client combinations IBM supports. Combinations not on this list will still receive administrative support, but we can't guaranty compatibility.

Client Downloads

Clients can be downloaded from IBM's FTP/HTTP download site:

ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/storage/tivoli-storage-management/

or

http://service.boulder.ibm.com/storage/tivoli-storage-management/

The site can be difficult to navigate because the latest release of a client may be in the maintenance or the patch tree. Maintenance releases typically end in zero and are named like 8.1.0.0 or 8.1.4.0. Patch or point releases end in something other than zero and are named like 7.1.8.2 or 8.1.4.1.

Maintenance releases can be found under this path:

ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/storage/tivoli-storage-management/maintenance/client/

Patch releases can be found under this path:

ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/storage/tivoli-storage-management/patches/client/

If the latest client was 8.1.5.0 than you'll find it under the maintenance section. If the latest client is 8.1.4.1 then you'll find it under patches.
