IBM Director 6.1 download agent tcdriver packages

The IBM Systems Director 6.1 has the feature to deploy its common agent remotely, though it seem the problem facing most people is when they try to deploy the agent using the wizard provided they get an error saying  it cannot proceed because the package has to be imported. It is a pretty annoying error. What makes it worse if you go and try to read the IBM System Director 6.1 manual you will find it say to resolve this you will need to download the tcdriver packages, but never refer to where you can get it at. After a long search on the internet & talking to IBM support I found the tcdriver packages download link to be as below:

IBM Systems Director 6.1 agent tcdriver packages direct download link

Please note: you might have to login to the ibm site to be able to access the download link above.  After you download the common agent tcdriver package you will have to import it from

Release Management ==> agents ==> Import Agent

I hope this post help you save a day or two of suffering learning the hard way like many of us have done so at the start.

    TSM Guru, I am new to IBM System Director 6.1 and I am having issues with deploying the common agent 6.1.1 to any windows system with tcp connectivity and already discovered (direct ip) in the director console. I am able to successfully manage and collect inventor etc. and I have imported the tcdriver package etc. However, the common agent will not deploy/install to the system? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. The install shows completed in about 15-20 seconds. – Jeff

    Have you downloaded & imported the common agent tcdriver as pointed in the post above? As well do you have administrator privileges on the systems you are trying to deploy the agent to?
