    My suggestions...

    If missed:
    - For Windows...check to see if the appropriate TSM Service is running
    - For Unix...check to see if the appropriate process is running...usually "dsmc schedule" or "dsmcad"
    - Make sure the TSM Server allows enough concurrent client sessions to run that allow for the backup jobs to start within the client schedule's window

    If failed:
    - take a look at the dsmsched.log and dsmerror.log files in the tsm client folder.

    Your scheduler is running?
    ps -ef |grep dsm

    If you want "on AIX" you CAN RUN : DSMC INC command! Create incremental backup manually.

    We have a pearl script that tells us which jobs failed or missed. As mentioned above we normally hunt down the reason via dsmsched.log. Fix it if we can and restart the CAD server verifying the schedule was picked up in the dsmsched.log.

    We normally do not rerun the backup job unless its a critical server that wouldn't be impacted by running backups during production hours. Servers that change very little simply wait for the next scheduled backup to come along. If its a database server with capacity we may run the backup prime time but in most cases we don't especially now that 80% of our servers have moved to VMs with very limited additional capacity.
