Step 9 – Upgrade is Required on the Following
CIM Extensions
Upgrade CIM extensions on servers with the following functionality:
• Backup Manager Hosts — Backup information is not gathered from legacy CIM extensions. In
order for backup information to be gathered by the management server, the CIM extensions on
the Backup Manager Hosts must be at the same build number as the management server.
When you upgrade your management server, upgrade the CIM extensions on your Backup
Manager Host in order to continue to see backup data.
• Windows hosts using SecurePath — SecurePath information is not retrieved from legacy CIM
• *Host that you want to retrieve cluster information for example: Veritas Cluster Server on Solaris
cluster and Microsoft Cluster Server
• *Linux hosts that support QLogic failover
*This is new functionality that requires Build 6.0 of the CIM extension.
