Hi again,

Is possible to get an inventory of clients of our TSM 5.5, at least the client version, from the TSM server?

If we  upgrade TSM server from 5.5 to 6.3, Does clients which version 5.5 works fine? Or I have to upgrade them too?

The inventory:

select -                                                    
 substr(node_name,1,24) NODE , -                            
 substr(platform_name,1,17) PLATFORM, -                      
 substr(client_os_level,1,12) OSLVL, -                      
 cast(client_version as char(1))||'.'|| -                    
 cast(client_release as char(1))||'.'|| -                    
 cast(client_level as char(1))||'.'|| -                      
 cast(CLIENT_SUBLEVEL as char(2))" Client Version" -                
from nodes where client_os_level is not NULL

Here is the Compatibility Matrix:

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21053218

TSM 5.5 clients will be supported with TSM 6.3.x servers and storage agents during the upgrade of TSM 5.5 servers to TSM 6.3.x, through the end of support (EOS) of TSM 5.5 and 6.1 on April 30, 2014. Please note:
There will be no further extension of this support
The TSM 6.3.x server is the highest-level server that will be supported with 5.5 clients
All TSM 5.5 clients must be upgraded prior to TSM 5.5 EOS on April 30, 2014

nice!!

Regarding the client EOS, I'm planning to upgrade them too, but I'm not sure if it's better to upgrade from 5.5 top 6.3 or from 5.5 to 6.4? What do you think about it?

Please scroll a bit down on the compatibility matrix page.

Important:

If you backup or archive data from a TSM V6.4 client, you cannot restore or retrieve that data using a TSM V6.3 or earlier client.

If you back up or archive data from a TSM V6.3 client, you cannot restore or retrieve that data using a TSM V6.2 or earlier client.

If you back up or archive data from a TSM 5.5 or 6.1 client to a supported TSM server, you can restore or retrieve that data using a TSM 6.2 client -> My addition:  but not a 6.3 client or higher

There are more caveats, please read!
