Figure 9-2 Warehouse pack structure
9.3 Tivoli GUID and Data Warehouse
Some Tivoli products have adopted the use of a globally unique identifier (GUID) that is
permanently assigned to computer systems running storage products. Tivoli Storage
Resource Manager Version 1.2 implements this feature as a software identifier and the GUID
package is automatically installed on the Server and Agents . The GUID allows these
products to coordinate computer system data in the central data warehouse. The GUID is
recorded as an attribute in the central data warehouse for each Tivoli Storage Resource
Manager Server and Agent when available.
A STORAGE_GUID attribute will not be available for the monitored systems until all Agents
are updated to Tivoli Storage Resource Manager Version 1.2.
Consult the Tivoli Storage Resource Manager Version 1.2 documentation for a list of
platforms that support GUID.

Warehouse installation media. Click
Next and on the next screen choose Application
