Sometimes we are asked about TIM and EM Version Compatibility.
The general rule is they should be both the same versions. (It may work with different minor versions, but this may not have been tested.)
The only exceptions that I know about are
- 9.6 TIM/9.5.3 EM
- 9.6 TIM/9.5.1 with HF 11
Please keep this in mind when planning upgrades
Thanks for the post.
So, If the customer is getting the 9.7 TIM Hot Fix for TLS 1.1/1.2 support, we would advise installing 9.7 rather than 9.7.1 . Right?
You can contact me directly. Without my notes in front of me. I believe 9.7 is supported but not 9.7.1. I can check Monday. Regardless of the release, we would need a pcap and the corresponding TIM log to see if the new functionality of TLS 1.1/1.2 would help a particular customer.
Thank you for the reply.
A customer asked for the Hotfix with a new ticket for me, while we see you created this notes, so, I joined the discussion here.
Yea, TIM version must match EM (TESS) version, we have request the pcap and TIM logs to check.
So, if you have EM 9.5.3 and TIM 9.6.1 then you should be fine, right?
Also, for TLS 1.1 and 1.2 compatibility with this TIM (that I have), I would need to apply hotfixes, right?
I've requested it via a CA Support Case #00187947
EM 9.5.3 and TIM 9.6/9.7 are what I have listed as what would be used if the new TLS 1.1/1.2 functionality is appropriate for your system.9.6.1 would not be compatible as far as know.
