    Not quite sure what these "tealeaf" files are, but I assume the problem is that they're always open/changing. You could consider taking a "fuzzy" backup (dynamic/shared dynamic)...but depending on...

    Hi,

    In general, most processes should not be run at the same time - but realistically that isn't easy to do. The wheel of life documented in the PDF here is a good place to start reviewing:

    Well, I assume you're doing this for testing purposes and not for production purposes. I'm pretty sure ESXi itself is free, and VMware gives you a vCenter for 30 days for free (trial) - which would...

    That's probably more work than is need. Stand up your OS6 machine with TSM 6.3.3, restore db a backup from the OS5 machine, attach the storage and make sure everything works, and then upgrade to 7.1
