Has anyone any info on Linux on Power - Big Endian clients
November 10, 2017 09:02AM
Due to the recent CVEs (CVE-2017-1301) we have been upgrading our Spectrum Protect clients to 8.1.2. I have found all but the clients for Linux on Power (PPC) Big Endian. All that seems to be released for it is a new API no actual client. I called the first level support and they sent me to sales, who have not yet gotten back to me.

Has anyone any idea as to why the API would be released without a client?
Has anyone heard from sales or support as to when they might release a full client distribution?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I think that this post from Del Hoobler should answer your questions:

https://www.mail-archive.com/adsm-l@vm.marist.edu/msg100743.html

"IBM did not drop the API support for LoP BE specifically so that Data
Protection for SAP HANA on Power BE continues to be supported."

I think that there won't be any new Full Client Big Endian distributions in the future.
