Spectrum Protect (TSM) upgrade

January 2022

University Systems will be upgrading the Spectrum Protect (formerly TSM) backup server to a new version. This version will require all users of the Spectrum Protect backup service to be running client version 8.1 or newer to maintain compatibility with the service. We recommend Spectrum Protection version for Windows and version for Mac.

Information on how to download and configure the Spectrum Protect backup client can be found on our website:
