What version of Java should I run with TSM?

Note: Code42/Crashplan is the recommended backup solution for most users

  • Code42/Crashplan is a user-friendly backup solution available for all MIT community members, and replaces Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) as the recommended backup solution for individual users.
  • For individual users who have not yet migrated to Code42 and for administrators of server machines using IS&T's enterprise service level agreement, read below for TSM's Java Runtime Environment requirements.

TSM on Windows

TSM on Mac OS 10.7 and higher

Note that Code42/Crashplan is the recommended backup solution for individual users.

Awareness: Java 6 is no longer receiving security updates from Apple.

  • For Mac OS 10.6 and lower, Java 6 is packaged with the Macintosh operating system. Java 7 is available only for Mac OS 10.7 and higher.
  • Use Apple's Software Update to upgrade to Java 6 update 45. (Apple >> Software Update)
  • Apple has not released security fixes for Java 6 update 45 and known security issues exist.
  • Apple's recommendation is to upgrade your operating system, then install Java 7.
