The BMC patch 11.0.00.01: Patch 1 for BMC PATROL Agent 11.0.00 must be installed to use any version of IBM Spectrum Protect KM for PATROL. Version 11.0.00i of the PATROL Agent on Windows prevents IBM Spectrum Protect KM from operating properly. While apparently successfully loaded, IBM Spectrum Protect KM fails to start and can neither monitor the local system or the remote systems. An error message is displayed stating that no hardware connectors are loaded and that the product needs to be re-installed.
Tivoli Storage Manager KM for PATROL has been renamed IBM Spectrum Protect KM for PATROL to comply with the rebranding of Tivoli Storage Manager.
