"backint -p d:\oracle\<SID>\11203\database\<initfie>.utl -f inquire" sometimes gives more info.
Also check the dsmerror log specified in the dsm.opt-file.

1. first move data AXXXXL3 stg=new_tapepool_lto6
2. then backup stg new_tapepool_lto6 copypool2
When the processes are finished you can delete the original copypool and old lto3_tapepool
RC418 is a very generic api errorcode, the additional logging normally shows which part fails

Perhaps you can make a smarter backup script that first queries the MS SQL server to check which DB's should have a backup.
sqlfull.cmd delivered with TSM is using a wildcard (*) if I remember...
looks like the tsm filesystems are not mounted. The output of the following commands could be helpful
lsvg | lsvg -il
The 'del volhist' command should indeed fix it. I always ran it in my environments even though I would have expected DRM to care of it.
DELETE VOLHISTORY TYPE=DBB TODATE=-5
Shame you gave an explicit retention with it. I normally let SAP backups archive to management class with no retention.
The SAP client can keep track of the amount of versions themselves (in the...
What does the TSM server actlog say around that time?
If you run "backfm -p /oracle/PES/112_64/dbs/initPES.utl" can you find the Label you are trying to restore on the left side?
ps. you are...
and the file libApiTSM64.so is also there?
Do you get proper output when executing "/usr/sap/PES/SYS/exe/run/backint -p /oracle/PES/112_64/dbs/initPES.utl -f inquire"
Installed the TSM 64-bits API?
When the SAN zoning is set, the TSM and the client will get access to the tape drive.
This can result in different mt-devices on AIX, let's say it is mt126.96.36.199 on the TSM server and mt188.8.131.52 on...
That won't work, since the TSM server is not able to see the tape drive on the head-office.
So it will not be able to control the drive, check the labels and so on.
For a lanfree backup both...
This might be a good starting point
Perhaps they schedule the backups from the client
q fi SERVER_ORA
q occ SERVER_ORA
"q vol stg=<stg_pool>" doesn't show any volumes anymore?

You could define a clientaction. It will create an additional backup so perhaps thats not what you want

I never worked with proxynode, but the following should work fine from server 2
# dsmc -virtualnodename=<SERVER1>
dsmc sel /etc/passwd | tee /tmp/dsmc.out
That works for me. I get the summary report in the end and /tmp/dsmc.out is filled with the same info as appeared on my screen.
Honestly? I don't have mt devices on AIX, only rmt devices.
Perhaps if you install something else then Atape that you get mt devices, but it's certainly not standard.
With Atape on AIX the devices...
it happens when backfm is started from a different directory as where backint is located.
So first cd to the directory and then execute backfm

reclaim stg is the newer command.
It has extra functionality in that you can specify the duration of the reclaim process.
Back in the days, I used to have a second admin schedule that set the...

you must have done something wrong. I just did the same actions i think:
1. REGISTER NODE INCLMC ?***? dom=THEAIX01D userid=none
2. DEFINE MGMTCLASS THEAIX01D STANDARD TEST
3. DEFINE COPYGROUP...
The idea with server free data movement was to have a data mover device in your SAN (eg ibm San DataGateway) that would copy the data directly from a disk device to a tape device on the...
chdev -l <old_name> -a new_name=<new_name>
eg renaming rmt15 to rmt999
chdev -l rmt15 -a new_name=rmt999
You will/might have to run cfgmgr on the system or device afterwards to give it the...
api error codes can be found in /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin(64)/sample/dsmrc.h
/* 600 to 610 for volume label codes */
The manual explicitly states backup processing, so I assume so.
A small test on a windows system seems to confirm it.
exclude.dir appears to be for backups not archives.
"exclude.dir Locates matching directory names. If a matching directory is found, that directory, its files, and all its subdirectories and...
dsmc q sched -virtualnodename=XXX
or use the dsm.sys Server entry
dsmc q sched -server=SERVER_ENTRY_IN_DSM.SYS
The second option can use passwords that are saved/encrypted on the client.

Perhaps set the max mount points to 0 for the client.
"upd no XXX maxmp=0".
I can still make a backup to the diskpool when trying thi.
why don't you then use the -console flag and use the asci interface
the installer gave a clue:
"The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The valid UI modes...
You mean if you can restore over the LAN if you backupped over SAN?
Yes certainly possible. Either by stopping/killing the storage agent or by changing the enablelanfree flag in the dsm.opt/sys file
TDP should not be a part of the cluster.
Install it on rootvg on both clusternodes. Have the tdpo.opt files and others on a shared disk or make sure to keep the option files synched between the 2...
on the command line: q no <specific_node> f=d
mksysb's in combination with an AIX NIM server will get the rootvg back.
If you also want a mechanism to have the other volumegroup/logical volume definitions back you could make empty savevg's of...
1. create /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin64/dsm.opt with the following entry
2. create /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin64/dsm.sys with a contents similar like...
On AIX TSM packages are normally in /usr/tivoli/tsm.
Not sure for TIP, never worked with it/

There is no tivoli guide for recovering normal TSM data tapes without a TSM database.
It is not an officially supported method.
With "dd" or some other block reader you could try to recover data....

You can indeed. Goodluck with it, without the DB tape.

TDP for Oracle is a licensed product.
Making an Oracle backup to disk and let the simple ba client send the data to TSM saves some money.
I prefer the TDP since then the logs are immediately...
check the contents of the init<SID>.utl file in /oracle/<SID>/<ora_version>/dbs
also check the server entry mentioned in the utl file in /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64/dsm.sys
11-07-2012, 05:06 AM
I doubt that last option is possible.
How would the TSM server be able to mount a tape in a drive if it does not have a path to the drive?
I think the TSM server will always be able to use the...

Cache Migrated Files?: Yes
from the "h q stg"
The Pct Util value includes cached data on disk volumes.
Therefore, when cache is enabled and migration occurs, the Pct
check what your primary pool is by looking at the copygroup settings

that test is not good enough I think
Normally /var/adm/wtmp is a file on AIX and not a directory
I just restored a Linux backup to an AIX system. That worked fine.
Also restored an AIX backup to...
