1. Introduction: Prerequisites & Obtaining the Software
This document contains installation instructions for the TSM version 6 client for Solaris on SPARC and x86. IBM supports this client to run on Solaris 10 and Solaris 11 (SPARC). It should not be installed on older versions. Note that IT Services no longer have any SPARC based machines available for TSM testing so although we can offer general support on use and configuration we may not be able to help with Solaris specific matters.
You will also need a standard 100Mb/s (or faster) network connection to the University network or a connection to the Oxford eduroam wireless network (please see page on backing up over wireless for more details). The HFS only supports VPN-based backup for systems registered for VPN-based backup.
