*** Update ***
The APAR has now been closed as a documentation error, with a workaround to allow the pre-req skip (as per the above):

** Update **
IBM has now raised APAR 99197 to address this issue:
IC99197: DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=TRUE OPTION FOR V7.1 DOESN'T ALLOW INSTALL TO COMPLETE IF A PREREQUISITE IS NOT MET >>...
So, we've been working through this here and have found a couple of things that work for us, allowing us to skip the TSM 7.1 installation prerequisite check for 12 GB RAM (useful for...
The confusion here would appear to be that the IBM documentation does very clearly state that the prerequisite check can be bypassed (on test servers only) using the flag.
I'll chase this up and...
Hello @Alexandre and @DArKer - did you get any further bypassing the 12 GB RAM installation restriction?
-- David Mc
What @moon-buddy says and also I'd suggest running the 'tdpoconf showenv' utility to check that the TSM side of the TDPO configuration is all still setup correctly.
A common gotcha: check that...
Might be worth taking a look at this thread from somebody with a similar issue >> http://adsm.org/forum/showthread.php?9421-Domino-TDP-doesn-t-deactivate-txn-files
It's been a while since I've done SAN Storage Agent stuff on Solaris but when I did it was the *stcbn flavour of special device files that we used.
That is not my experience. Consider the following:
Primary stgpool 1 = BACKUPPOOL
Primary stgpool 2 = ARCHIVEPOOL
Copy stgpool 1 = COPYPOOL
I can perform:

Just to make sure we understand your question, have you tried the above command already and if so did it work? Or are you saying that the above performed a backup of the whole e:...

@Harry's right about the library issue, although it seems you certainly do have a licensing issue with your TSM Server as well - have you installed the TSM licensing package on this system?
Does SELECT * FROM SYSCAT.TABLES help you on the way to what you're looking for?
You may also consider investigating what we call a 'Backupset', previously known in the product as an 'Instant Archive'.
A backupset takes the backup data for a given node and...

To expand on what @Jeroen is saying here, your original backup *was* successful but only performed a backup of 1 object - from your output, "Total number objects backed up: 1"...

And what is the error reported on the client from its dsmerror.log?
An idea (and I'm sure there might be a nicer way as well), but if this is only an ad-hoc query have you considered performing the query from/as the client instead?
I take it you exported the node's data to a tape volume rather than directly to the new server over the network (i.e., TOSERVER)?
In which case, next you'll need to check in the...
Ok, this suggests to me that the TSM Server Activity Log covering this period would be the next place to check and see if there are any corresponding errors there. The causes of the 'Server media...

FWIW, you sure can deactivate TDP for SQL Server backups both from the GUI and from the CLI using the INACTIVATE command.

What is the NAS filer providing the share? If it happens to be a NetApp/N-Series then a feature such as SnapDiff might be just what you're looking for:
Did you ever get a response or figure this out? I'm investigating the same thing at the moment.

Hi @Harry_Redl and @obiwan2,
Sorry, I've been offline for a while and only just seen this - I think you've pretty much summed up the technical side of FastBack; FastBack is essentially a...
Did you get any success with this in the end? Constructing a fastbackshell.exe command can be a little fiddly at times and the error messages are less than helpful but I do have a...
@suresh2250 Are you asking about Fastback here or the core TSM product (this being posted in the FastBack forum)?
I only ask because @Hema and @Pappumobile's responses seem to be core...

Just to close this off - downloaded the 184.108.40.206 installation package and, as advertised, I get past the error spotted above.
That's not to say I won't come across any other errors, but so far...

Thanks for the pointer @Domino. One the one hand, I was *sure* I'd checked this and found that this was a supported config - perhaps I misread or just saw want I *wanted* to see; meanwhile there does...

I'm having some trouble installing TSM Server 220.127.116.11 onto an RHEL (2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64 - from uname) system. Running the TSM Server's install.bin installation script as root all I...
The FTP/DR stuff can be a little fiddly to troubleshoot in my experience. IBM have published at least one technote describing some troubleshooting and things to check. Ultimately,...

As always, thanks Chad.
I don't think I've artriculated the problem clearly enough though.

07-20-2011, 01:26 PM
Thanks for your thoughts moon-buddy. I do take issue with some of your points though.
Whilst, I do accept that the TSM journal engine isn't perfect by any means and does need a modicum of...

Nice one Chad. I'd like to see "tape library/drive/media issues" in there too - certainly the box-ticker for one of my customers at the moment.
Once again, IBM seems to have sneaked another release of FastBack under the door. Seriously, am I missing something, or is IBM just not so great at communicating this stuff to its customers any more?...

Hmn, that's a puzzler - the login works fine on the systems here. I'm stumped now I'm afraid - anybody else have any pointers for m@tteo?

What part is it that doesn't seem to work? The 'technician' login?

Hello m@tteo, and welcome to the forum.
Yes, I believe there is a way to reset the 'admin' password using the super 'super user' account (yes, there is one higher than 'admin'). It's not an...
