  • 23. 7894Overview.fm Draft Document for Review February 17, 2011 2:17 am1.2.2 Data server This component is the control point for product scheduling functions, configuration, event information, reporting, and graphical user interface (GUI) support. It coordinates communication with and data collection from agents that scan file systems and databases to gather storage demographics and populate the database with results. Automated actions can be defined to perform file system extension, data deletion, and Tivoli Storage Manager backup or archiving, or event reporting when defined thresholds are encountered. The Data server is the primary contact point for GUI user interface functions. It also includes functions that schedule data collection and discovery for the Device server.1.2.3 Device server This component discovers, gathers information from, analyzes performance of, and controls storage subsystems and SAN fabrics. It coordinates communication with and data collection from agents that scan SAN fabrics and storage devices.1.2.4 Tivoli Integrated Portal IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4 is integrated with IBM Tivoli Integrated Portal (TIP). This integration provides functionalities like single sign-on and the use of Tivoli Common Reporting. Single sign-on Enables you to access Tivoli Storage Productivity Center and then Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication using a single user ID and password. Tivoli Common Reporting Tivoli Common Reporting (TCR) is a component provided by TIP. It is one possible option to implement customized reporting solutions using SQL database access, providing output in HTML, PDF or Microsoft® Excel. Note that Tivoli Common Reporting is intended to provide a platform to reproduce custom reports in an easy way or for reports that are to be run repeatedly—typically on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. It does not provide any online report creation or report customization features.1.2.5 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Starting with TPC V4.1, the IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication product is starting to get integrated into TPC. Currently the integration is limited to basic functions such as providing Launch in Context links in the TPC GUI, as well as crosschecks when a volume is deleted with TPC and mapping of user roles.1.2.6 DB2 database A single database instance serves as the repository for all Tivoli Storage Productivity Center components. This repository is where all of your storage information and usage statistics are stored. All agent and user interface access to the central repository is done through a series of calls and requests made to the server. All database access is done using the server component to maximize performance and to eliminate the need to install database connectivity software on your agent and UI machines.4 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 Release Update
  • 24. Draft Document for Review February 17, 2011 2:17 am 7894Overview.fm1.2.7 Agents Outside of the server, there are several interfaces that are used to gather information about the environment. The most important sources of information are the TPC agents (Storage resource agent, Data agent and Fabric agent) as well as SMI-S enabled storage devices that use a CIMOM agent (either embedded or as a proxy agent). Storage Resource agent, CIM agents, and Out of Band fabric agents gather host, application, storage system, and SAN fabric information and send that information to the Data Server or Device server. Note that Data agents and Fabric agents are supported in Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2. However, no new functions were added to those agents for this release. For optimal results when using Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, migrate the Data agents and Fabric agents to Storage Resource agents.1.2.8 Interfaces As TPC gathers information from your storage (servers, subsystems, and switches) across your enterprise, it accumulates a repository of knowledge about your storage assets and how they are used. You can use the reports provided in the user interface view and analyze that repository of information from various perspectives to gain insight into the use of storage across your enterprise. The user interfaces (UI) enable users to request information and then generate and display reports based on that information. Certain user interfaces can also be used for configuration of TPC or storage provisioning for supported devices. The following interfaces are available for TPC: TPC GUI: This is the central point of TPC administration. Here you have the choice of configuring TPC after installation, define jobs to gather information, initiate provisioning functions, view reports, and work with the advanced analytics functions. Java™ Web Start GUI: When you use Java Web Start, the regular TPC GUI will be downloaded to your workstation and started automatically, so you do not have to install the GUI separately. The main reason for using the Java Web Start is that it can be integrated into other products (for example, TIP). By using Launch in Context from those products, you will be guided directly to the select panel. The Launch in Context URLs can also be assembled manually and be used as bookmarks. TPCTOOL: This is a command line (CLI) based program which interacts with the TPC Device Server. Most frequently it is used to extract performance data from the TPC repository database in order to create graphs and charts with multiple metrics, with various unit types and for multiple entities (for example, Subsystems, Volumes, Controller, Arrays) using charting software. Commands are entered as lines of text (that is, sequences of types of characters) and output can be received as text. Furthermore, the tool provides queries, management, and reporting capabilities, but you cannot initiate Discoveries, Probes and performance collection from the tool. Database access: Starting with TPC V4, the TPC database provides views that provide access to the data stored in the repository, which allows you to create customized reports. The views and the Chapter 1. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 introduction and overview 5
  • 25. 7894Overview.fm Draft Document for Review February 17, 2011 2:17 am required functions are grouped together into a database schema called TPCREPORT. For this, you need to have sufficient knowledge about SQL. To access the views, DB2 supports various interfaces, for example, JDBC and ODBC.1.2.9 Integration with other applications In this section, we describe Tivoli Storage Productivity Center integration with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for backup or archival of files, IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console® (TEC) or any other SNMP manager for alert notification. Integration with Tivoli Storage Manger Use the Archive/Backup function available within the Reporting facility to define IBM Tivoli Storage Manager archive or backup jobs to run against the files that you select from reports. This function enables you to select a specific file or group of files from Data Manager reports that you want to archive or backup using Tivoli Storage Manager. Some of this reports include largest files, most obsolete files, duplicate files and constraint violations. The results of the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive commands are viewable through the graphical user interface. In the case of constraints configured to archive-backup violating files, the results are included in the agent scan job logs (scans are responsible for enforcing constraints). In the case of file report driven archive-backup operations, a new type of job (archive-backup job) is created. The results of the backup operations in this case are found in archive-backup job logs. SNMP For users planning to use the Simple Network Managment Protocol (SNMP) trap alert notification capabilities of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, SNMP Management Information Base (SNMP MIB) files are included on the installation media. The MIB is provided for use by your SNMP management console software (for example, IBM Tivoli NetView® or HP Openview). This will allow you to better view TPC-generated SNMP traps from within your management console software. Integration with Tivoli Enterprise Console Netcool/OMNIbus Tivoli Storage Productivity Center can use the Event Integration Facility (EIF) to send messages to the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC) or the follow-on product Netcool/OMNIbus. This can allow one of the two central monitoring applications to consider Tivoli Storage Productivity Center alerts in causal analysis for problems. TEC/OMNIbus is added as a destination for alerts, in addition to SNMP Trap and Windows Event Log.1.3 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center family In this section we describe the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center components.1.3.1 TPC for Data Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Data provides over 400 enterprise-wide reports, monitoring and alerts, policy-based action and file-system capacity automation in a heterogeneous environment. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Data is designed to help improve capacity utilization of file systems and databases and add intelligence to data protection and retention practices.6 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 Release Update

The new features, functions and enhancements that are included in IBM System Storage Productivity Center (SSPC) Version 1.5 are described in this section. Machine type MC5 SSPC machine type and model number 2805-MC5 is available with an Intel® Quad-core Xeon processor that runs at 2.53 GHz. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 4.2.1 IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Basic Edition 4.2.1 and IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Basic Edition 4.2.1 are preinstalled on the System Storage Productivity Center server. Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard operating system for 64-bit processors Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 4.2.1 uses the Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard operating system for 64-bit processors. Optional preinstalled host bus adapter card To provide additional storage on the SSPC server, SSPC V1.5 offers an optional host bus adapter (HBA) so that you can move the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center database from the SSPC server to an internal redundant hard disk drive or to an IBM System Storage DS8000. You can connect the DS8000 storage system to the SSPC server directly or through a storage area network (SAN). You can order the HBA to be preinstalled on the SSPC server or as a Feature Code 3570 for your IBM service representative to install. After you configure multipath input and output (I/O) and zone the SAN into a partition for the SSPC and the DS8000 storage system, you can move the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center database to the storage system. The procedure includes prerequisites. Optional redundant hard disk drives Order a second pair of hard disk drives as Feature Code 5190 if you want to move the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center from the SSPC server and make additional storage available. Contact your IBM service representative to install the redundant hard disk drives. Documentation about international power requirements Power-cord options are available for attaching the SSPC to a power-distribution unit (PDU) for a rack or to a country- or region-specific wall outlet. Options are provided in tables listing power cords and receptacles. DB2 9.7 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center supports IBM DB2 9.7. System Storage DS8000 Release 6.0 You can monitor IBM System Storage DS8000 6.0 or earlier releases with SSPC. SAN Volume Controller Console Release 6.1 SSPC supports IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller 6.1, but the software is no longer preinstalled on the SSPC server. Instead, you can start the console from the web browser on the SSPC desktop. When you configure SAN Volume Controller to Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, you must supply a private Secure Shell (SSH) key file in OpenSSH format or PuTTY (.ppk) format that is not protected by a password. In previous versions of SSPC, the PuTTY8 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 Release Update
  • 28. Draft Document for Review February 17, 2011 2:17 am 7894Overview.fm utility was preinstalled on the SSPC server so that you could convert a PuTTY .ppk key that was protected by a password to OpenSSH key format. The PuTTY utility is no longer preinstalled on the SSPC server. Instead, you can download and install the PuTTYgen utility from a website. With SSPC 1.5, single sign-on authentication is extended to SAN Volume Controller. When you use single sign-on authentication, you can enter one user ID and password to access multiple applications. IBM Storwize V7000 Storwize V7000 is a hardware and software solution that provides online storage optimization through real-time data compression. This solution helps to reduce costs without performance degradation. The Storwize V7000 hardware consists of a set of drive enclosures. Control enclosures contain disk drives and two node canisters. The two nodes within the canisters make an I/O group that is attached to the SAN fabric. A single pair of nodes is responsible for serving I/O on a given volume. Because a volume is served by two nodes, there is no loss of availability if one node fails or is taken offline. Storwize V7000 can be used as a traditional RAID storage system where the internal drives are configured into arrays, and volumes are created from those arrays. Storwize V7000 can also be used to virtualize other storage systems. Storwize V7000 supports both regular and solid-state drives (SSDs). A Storwize V7000 system without any internal drives can be used as a storage virtualization solution. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center provides basic support for this product, including discovery, probes, performance monitoring, Storage Optimizer, and SAN Planner. Similar to other systems, Storwize V7000 is displayed as an entity within data sources, reports, data collection schedules, the topology viewer, and so on. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication also supports Storwize V7000. Like SAN Volume Controller, single sign-on authentication is available to Storwize V7000. System Storage DS® Storage Manager Release 10.70 The IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager user interface is available for you to optionally install on the SSPC server or on a remote server. The DS Storage Manager 10.70 can manage the DS3000, DS4000, and DS5000. With DS Storage Manager 10.70, when you use Tivoli Storage Productivity Center to add and discover a DS CIM agent you can start the DS Storage Manager from the topology viewer, the Configuration Utility, or the Disk Manager of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. IBM Java Release 1.6 IBM Java 1.6 is preinstalled and can be used with DS Storage Manager 10.70. You do not need to download Java from Sun Microsystems. DS CIM agent management commands The DS CIM agent management commands (DSCIMCLI) for Release 6.0 are preinstalled on the SSPC server. Optional media to recover image for 2805-MC5 Order Feature Code 9010 if you did not back up your SSPC 2805-MC5 image and you need to recover it. The optional media feature includes a recovery CD for the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard operating system and two recovery DVDs for the SSPC 1.5 image. Chapter 1.

The Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 installation program does not support installation of the Data agent or Fabric agent. If you want to install the legacy Data agent or Fabric agent, you must have a previous Tivoli Storage Productivity Center installation program that supports installing the Data agent or Fabric agent. If you are installing DB2 9.7 and want to use the Agent Manager, you must install a new release of Agent Manager 1.4.2 or later. Agent Manager 1.3 does not support DB2 9.7. Most of the information about Tivoli Common Agent Services has been removed from the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center version 4.2 documentation. However, this information is still available in the Information Center for Tivoli Storage Productivity Center version 4.1.1. SAN Planner Tivoli Storage Productivity Center provides a new SAN Planner wizard which has been enhanced to support the following functions. SAN Volume Controller with provisioning and workload profiles The SAN Planner recommendations are limited to SAN Volume Controller front-end operations only. The support includes the creation and provisioning of VDisks with the recommended I/O group and preferred node for each VDisk. The SAN Planner does not support back-end operations such as the creation of new MDisks or the creation or expansion of MDisk groups. Space-only planning for all storage subsystems All storage subsystems supported by Tivoli Storage Productivity Center can be used for space-based planning. Resiliency profile for TPC for Replication supported devices The SAN Planner has a new profile called the resiliency profile for resilient resources. The resiliency profile is created internally when you select different options in the SAN Planner wizard. Resilient resource planning is available only for devices which are supported by Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication. The supported devices are DS8000, DS6000, ESS, and SAN Volume Controller. Space-efficient volumes The SAN Planner now has an option to provision space-efficient volumes on supported storage subsystems. These storage subsystems are: SVC (v4.3 or later), XIV (v10.1 or later), and DS8000 (v4.3 or later). Encrypted volumes Tivoli Storage Productivity Center supports encrypted volumes for the DS8000. The SAN Planner has been enhanced to allow input from the user for encrypted volumes as needed. The SAN Planner currently supports encrypted volumes for the DS8000 and SAN Volume Controller (if the DS8000 is used as a backend device). Chapter 1.

New switches supported in toleration mode only Tivoli Storage Productivity Center displays both Fibre Channel over Ethernet and FC ports in the switch port lists. Now supports the following switches: Brocade 8000, Brocade DCX-4S Backbone and Cisco Nexus 5000. Note that not all functions are supported, for example it does not support the Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) or Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) connectivity functions. Brocade Data Center Fabric Manager Tivoli Storage Productivity Center supports the new embedded SMI Agent in the Data Center Fabric Manager (DCFM) 10.4.0 or later (it still supports separate non-embedded SMI Agent). This DCFM manages both the McDATA and Brocade switches. The DCFM manages multiple fabrics within and across data centers. When you configure DCFM, you set up one switch to be the "master switch" which interconnects to all the other switches in the fabric. The embedded SMI Agent supports the SMI-S 1.2 standards.12 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 Release Update

Draft Document for Review February 17, 2011 2:17 am 7894Overview.fm IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Monitoring Agent The IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Monitoring Agent can be used by the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server to monitor systems in your enterprise. This agent is an optional program you can install and use in your enterprise. XIV Storage System Tivoli Storage Productivity Center supports performance monitoring and provisioning for XIV storage systems through the native interface.1.4.2 What is new for IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication 4.2 adds the following new features, functions, and enhancements since Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.1. More details on Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication can be found in Chapter 10, “Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication” on page 335. Open HyperSwap replication Open HyperSwap replication is a special Metro Mirror replication method designed to automatically failover I/O from the primary logical devices to the secondary logical devices in the event of a primary disk storage system failure. This function can be done with minimal disruption to the applications that are using the logical devices. Open HyperSwap replication applies to both planned and unplanned replication swaps. When a session has Open HyperSwap enabled, an I/O error on the primary site automatically causes the I/O to switch to the secondary site without any user interaction and with minimal application impact. In addition, while Open HyperSwap is enabled, the Metro Mirror session supports disaster recovery. If a write is successful on the primary site but is unable to get replicated on the secondary site, IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication suspends all replication for the session, thus ensuring that a consistent copy of the data exists on the secondary site. If the system fails, this data might not be the latest data, but the data will be consistent and allow the user to manually switch host servers to the secondary site. Soft removal of hardware relationships When you remove a copy set from IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication, you can choose to keep the hardware relationships on the storage systems. This is useful when you want to migrate from one session type to another or when resolving problems. Download log packages from the graphical user interface To aid in speedy diagnostics of IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication anomalies, you can download a log package to the local system from the graphical user interface. You no longer need to log into the IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication server to collect the log package. Global Mirror and Metro Mirror Path Manager Provides peer-to-peer remote copy (PPRC) path support. The Path Manager allows you to : specify what ports to use when establishing the PPRC paths and keep that information persistent for use when the path is terminated because of a peer-to-peer suspend operation. specify port pairings in a simple CSV file format to establish PPRC data paths. The specified port pairings are used whenever new paths are required to be established. Chapter 1. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 introduction and overview 13
  • 33. 7894Overview.fm Draft Document for Review February 17, 2011 2:17 am Additional details available for Global Mirror sessions For Global Mirror sessions, the Session Details panel now includes the Global Mirror Info tab. This tab displays information about the Global Mirror session, including information about the Global Mirror master, consistency groups that have been formed, and data exposure time. SAN Volume Controller session enhancements IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication supports the following: SAN Volume Controller space-efficient volumes in all IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication SAN Volume Controller sessions. SAN Volume Controller space-efficient volumes are intended to be used as FlashCopy® targets. SAN Volume Controller incremental FlashCopy in the IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication FlashCopy, Metro Mirror with practice, and Global Mirror with practice sessions. DS8000 session enhancements IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication supports the following: DS8000 extent space-efficient volumes on all IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication DS8000 sessions. IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication displays whether a volume is extent space efficient or not. There are some restrictions whether a space-efficient volume can be placed in a copy set. This restriction is based on the DS8000 microcode. Multiple Global Mirror sessions in a storage system allows you to create multiple sessions and individually manage (start, suspend, recover, and so on) data assigned to different hosts or applications. DB2 no longer supported as the datastore for operational data With version 4.2, IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication no longer supports DB2 as the datastore for its operational data. It now uses an embedded repository for its operational data. The IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication 4.2 installation program automatically migrates any data in an existing and operational IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication DB2 database to the embedded repository as part of upgrading to IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication 4.2 from an earlier version. New IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication 4.2 installations use the embedded repository by default.1.5 Contents of the book The contents of this book focus on the install and migration to functions provided in Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2.

The installation in this chapter is not related to any of the different licenses that are available. All editions use the same code base and as such all the panels look the same. The prerequisite components have to be installed prior to invoking the installation wizard.2.1.1 Installation overview In order to get Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 to work, you need to follow the following steps: Check that the system meets the prerequisites. See 2.2, “Preinstallation steps for Windows” on page 20. Install the prerequisite components. See 2.3, “Installing TPC prerequisites” on page 24. Install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center components. See 2.4, “Installing Tivoli Storage Productivity Center components” on page 34. Install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center agents. See 2.4.3, “Agent installation” on page 61. You should unerstand that there is a difference between an agent installation versus a deployment. We use the term installation if the agent is locally installed with a GUI or CLI installer, but we say deployed, when the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center server is running and pushes the agent onto a server, without being locally logged in on that system. You can install all the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center components using Typical installation or Custom installation. Typical installation The Typical installation allows you to install all the components of the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center on the local server in one step, but you still can decide which components to install: Server:Data Server, Device Server, Replication Manager and TIP Clients:Tivoli Storage Productivity Center GUI Storage Resource Agent The drawback of using the Typical installation is that the defaults for the components are used. Our recommendation is not to use the Typical installation, because the control of the installation process is much better when you use the Custom installation method. Custom installation The Custom installation allows you to install parts of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center separately and provides options toc change default settings, like user IDs and directories. This is the installation method that we recommend. When you install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, you have these installable components: Database Schema Data Server and Device Server Graphical User Interface (GUI)18 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 Release Update

The following list shows the supported levels of DB2: – IBM DB2 UDB Enterprise Server Edition • v9.1 Fix Pack 2 or later • v9.5 Fix Pack 3a or later • v9.7 without any Fix Pack Attention: For DB2 9.7, use the version of DB2 shipped with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. Do not use DB2 9.7 with fix pack 1 or fix pack 2. This causes issues with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. Starting from Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.1, the installation of Tivoli Agent Manager is optional. You are required to install it only if you need to use Data agents on platforms that are not supported with Storage Resource Agents Agent Manager 1.3.2 (any subversion) supports DB 9.1. For DB2 9.5 support, you need to use Agent Manager version 1.3.2.30 which is shipped with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 4.1.1.

Installing any SRA via the installer requires you to also uninstall the SRA using the installer, so so in most cases using the TPC GUI to deploy agents (instead of installing them) is the more flexible approach. During this process two additional components will be also installed: the Tivoli Integrated Portal and the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication. Preinstallation tasks To install Data Server and Device Server components, you must log on to the Windows system with a user ID that has the following rights, which any user that is part of the DB2ADMNS group has automatically: Log on as a service. Act as part of the operating system. Adjust memory quotas for a process. Create a token object. Debug programs. Replace a process-level token. Be certain that the following tasks are completed: The Database Schema must be installed successfully to start the Data Server installation. The Data Server must be successfully installed prior to installing the GUI. The Device Server must be successfully installed prior to installing the CLI. Local Database Validation error After a successful DB2 9.7 installation on 64-bit Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 servers. the database instance will not be recognized by the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center installer without a reboot of the server.

Depending on the decision of running the agent as a daemon or non-daemon service (on-demand service) and on the communication protocol that must be used, other parameters might be required. The images of the Storage Resource agent are located on both TPC images disks under <DiskImage>/data/sra/windows. We navigate to the <DiskImage>/data/sra/windows/bin directory.

The prerequisite components (DB2 and Agent Manager) are installed prior to invoking the installation program. This section also provides information about the preparation work required before installing the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center family.3.1.1 Installation overview In order to successfully install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 you need to follow certain steps as indicated here: Check that the system meets the prerequisites. Refer to 3.2, “Preinstallation steps for Linux” on page 78. Install and configure all required prerequisite components. Refer to 3.3, “Installing the TPC prerequisite for Linux”. Install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center database schema. Refer to 3.4.1, “Creating the database schema” on page 97. Install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center server components. Refer to 3.4.2, “Installing TPC Servers, GUI and CLI” on page 103. You can install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center family components using either Typical installation or Custom installation. Typical installation The Typical installation allows you to install all the components of the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center on the local server in one step. Our recommendation is not to use the Typical installation, because the control of the installation process is much better when you use the Custom installation method. Custom installation The Custom installation allows you to install each component of the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center separately and deploy remote Fabric and or Data agents on various computers. Additional panels are presented allowing you to control the installation sequence of the components and specify additional TPC parameters. This is the installation method that we recommend. Note: Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication is no longer a stand-alone application. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Version 4.2 now installs Tivoli Integrated Portal and Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Version 4.2 during the server components installation process. When you install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center using custom installation, you have the following installable components: Database schema Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Servers Graphical User Interface (GUI) Command Line Interface (CLI) Data agent76 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 Release Update

DB2 UDB Enterprise Server Edition is the only prerequisite component. The following list shows the supported levels of DB2: IBM DB2 UDB Enterprise Server Edition – v9.1 Fix Pack 2 or later – v9.5 Fix Pack 3a or later – v9.7 Note: For DB2 9.7, use the version of DB2 shipped with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. Do not use DB2 9.7 with fix pack 1 or fix pack 2 (this causes issues with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center).3.3 Installing the TPC prerequisite for Linux This section describes how to install the TPC prerequisites on Linux. We perform a typical installation of DB2 v9.7 64-bit on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Ensure that you have verified that your system meets all the minimum system requirements for installing the prerequisites, including adequate free disk space. Before beginning the installation, it is important that you log on to your system as a local system user with root authority. Attention: In this section, we are dealing with a clean installation of TPC, therefore it is important to understand that if you are required to migrate your current TPC environment to Version 4.2, that you refer to the IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Installation and Configuration Guide, SC27-2337, Chapter 4: “Upgrading and migrating the IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center family”. The guide is available at: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v4r1/topic/com.ibm.tpc_V42.do c/fqz0_installguide_v42.pdf3.3.1 DB2 installation: GUI install This topic describes how to install DB2 v9.5 Fix Pack 3a 64-bit on Linux using the GUI installation program.78 Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2 Release Update
  • 98. Draft Document for Review February 17, 2011 2:17 am 7894LinuxInstall.fm Note: You must have the X11 graphical capability installed before installing DB2 using the GUI. Refer to Appendix C, “Configuring X11 forwarding” on page 651. To install DB2, log on as a user with root authority, and then use the following procedures. Accessing the installation media using the CD Follow these steps: 1. Create a mount point or choose an existing mount point. To create a mount point called /cdrom, we enter the following command: mkdir /cdrom 2. Insert the DB2 CD into the CD-ROM drive. Mount the CD-ROM file system at the desired mount point. Run the following command to achieve this: mount -o ro /dev/cdrom /cdrom 3. Change to the directory where the CD-ROM is mounted: cd /cdrom Accessing the installation media using a downloaded image Follow these steps: 1. Create a temporary directory (for example, db2temp) to hold the DB2 installer tar file and untarred files. These files require from 2 GB to 3 GB of hard drive space. mkdir /db2temp 2. Copy or download the DB2 installer into db2temp. 3. Change to the directory where you have stored the image, for example: cd /db2temp 4. Un-tar (extract) the DB2 installer file, following the instructions supplied at the repository from which you downloaded the image, which might involve running the tar or gunzip commands, or a combination of both. For example: tar -xvzf v9.7_linuxx64_ese.tar.gz 5. Change to the installation directory, which you extracted from the image. For example: cd /db2temp/ese Beginning the installation Follow these steps: 1. Run the following command in order to verify that all necessary prerequisite packages are installed on the system: ./db2prereqcheck Chapter 3. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center install on Linux 79
