TSM Backups should be installed on every server.
As of 01 Jan 2016 this is a link to the latest client software and documentation.
The RPMs will need to either be signed and imported into your central management platform (Satellite) or downloaded and installed manually and setup as a service. Once installed you need to configure the client, this configuration file is normally located in: (/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys). Here is an example configuration:
SErvername server_a NODENAME your.hostname.edu COMMMethod TCPip TCPPort 1500 TCPServeraddress central.tsmserver.edu SCHEDLOGNAME "/var/log/dsm/dsmsched.log" PASSWORDACCESS GENERATE EXCLUDE.DIR "/proc" EXCLUDE.DIR "/tmp" EXCLUDE.DIR "/var/opt/rmfpms" SCHEDLOGRETENTION 90 ERRORLOGRETENTION 90 ERRORLOGNAME "/var/log/dsm/dsmerror.log" * ManagedServices schedule * ManagedServices schedule webclient ManagedServices webclient HTTPPort 1685 WEBPorts 1686 1687
The asterisks (*) is a comment delimiter in the TSM client configuration file. Once configured start or restart the service. Some useful commands:
To perform a manual incremental backup of the sever:
To perform a point-in-time restore:
