Abstract: TS7700 Code, Hardware and Grid Interoperability Matrix

This Technote contains a matrix showing the interoperability between specific code levels and hardware releases of the IBM TS7700 family: controller engines, cache models and backend tape libraries and drives. Furthermore it shows the code level dependencies for different field scenarios and supports you in planning:
  • Code upgrades on a single cluster
  • Code upgrades within a grid
  • Joining a new, empty cluster into an existing grid
  • Merging clusters or entire grids with existing data
  • Replacing server engines or frames (server engine + cache)
  • Supported tape backend switches
  • Functions table

Updated with support for R4.1.2
