    Default Cannot see backupset on Netware

    I have TSM server 6.2.1, which among other nodes is backing up one Netware 6.5 SP8 machine (TSM client version 5.5.2.6). Today I generated my first backupset of a nodegroup which includes all my servers, using this command:

    Code:
    generate backupset tlv 201012 dev=lto_class retention=nolimit desc="31.12.2010" pitdate=12/31/2010 pittime=23:59:59 wait=no
    From server logs, it seems that among other nodes the backup set of my Netware server was created sucessfully:

    Code:
    2011-01-05-13.12.27 ANR3501I Backup set for INFO as 201012.16416666 (data type File) completed successfully - processed 1863877 files. (SESSION: 14373, PROCESS: 336)
    However, I cannot see this backupset from the client. For all other nodes, when I open the webclient I can see that the backupset exists and I can choose files for restore. For the Netware server, I cannot see any backupsets in the B/A webclient GUI, and QUERY BACKUPSET command from the CLI also returns no results. Any ideas why this is so?

    Are you running the Q BACKUPSET from the Netware client? Also what about when you query it from the TSM server? Do you see a record for it there?

    Yes, I was running the Q BACKUPSET command from the Netware client. When I run the same command via administrative CLI, it does list the Netware client among others:

    Code:
    Node Name: INFO
                 Backup Set Name: 201012.16416666
                       Data Type: File
                       Date/Time: 12/31/2010 23:59:59
                Retention Period: No Limit
               Device Class Name: LTO_CLASS
                     Description: 31.12.2010
    Has Table of Contents (TOC)?: Yes

    I think I found an explanation in this document: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docvie...id=swg21444560. As my server (and most of the clients) are version 6.2.1, a mixed backupset of newer and older clients is inaccessible to older clients. Looks like I need to generate a separate backupset of the Netware client.
