What version of Java should I run with TSM?

Note: CrashPlan is the recommended backup solution for most users

  • 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 CrashPlan 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 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.
