Original Alert

An upgrade will be installed on the TSM server knox.its.psu.edu from 10:30 - 2:30 p.m. Thursday, October 11, 2017. The work will upgrade the TSM server software to a new version (7.1.8) with improvements, bug-fixes, and ongoing vendor support.

All currently-supported client versions will continue to be compatible with the new server version.

The work is being performed during a period of low activity to limit service degradation for users. During this time, knox.its.psu.edu will not be available for backing up or restoring files. The other TSM servers will not be affected by this upgrade.

The upgrade is being tracked in Service Now as change CHG0044433.

For more information, please contact TSM Administrators (backup@psu.edu).
