How to read IBM Cognos TM1 Version Numbers

Breaking this one down:

"10.1.0" = TM1 10.1.0

"00100" = FP1

"24600" = Build number, useful for IBM Support.

The important numbers are the middle ones (00100).

The first is part of the major release (aka 10.1.10000 = TM1 10.1.1)

The next 2 numbers are for the FP.

The last 2 numbers are for the IF (aka Hotfix).


10.1.00100.24600 = TM1 10.1.0 FP1

10.1.10000.26473 = TM1 10.1.1 Base Release

10.1.10100.31864 = TM1 10.1.1 FP1    (For 10.1.1 FP2 this would be 10.1.10200.xxxxx)

10.1.10104.34644 = TM1 10.1.1 FP1 IF4
