The TSM API is no longer supported on an IBMi. During our upgrade to V7.1 we opened a PMR because we had a question/problem but the PMR was closed with a resolution that the API is not supported.
We implemented an IBMi to TSM solution as a logical path instead of purchasing a third party product that was not IBM. The API needs to be supported.
