    Default Backup is not encrypted - how to enable encryption

    Hi,

    I am backing up linux servers with TSM 6.2. Therefore I am using a script with the dsmc i command, executed by a cronjob. Everything works fine.

    I am now trying to encrypt the backups. It seems, this does not work. I am only asked once to enter an encryption password after a reboot of the server. When using tshark to check the transferred data it is NOT encrypted. When tying to recover a file I am not asked for the encryption password.

    Are there any hints how to get a clou what could be wrong? Here are my config files (dsm.sys and inclexcl.txt)

    SErvername XXX
    COMMMethod TCPip
    TCPPort 1680
    TCPServeraddress XXX.domain.com
    ENCRYPTKey prompt
    ENCRYPTIONType AES128

    NODename YYY

    INCLExcl /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/inclexcl.txt

    ---

    include.encrypt /
    include /
    exclude.dir /dev
    exclude.dir /dev/shm
    exclude.dir /lib/init/rw
    exclude.dir /proc
    exclude.dir /tmp

    Thanks a lot!

    The backup is running as root (or autorized user)?

    ...
    include.encrypt /
    include /
    ...

    delete (or rem) the 2nd entry

    ...
    include.encrypt /
    * include /
    ...
    If Microsoft is the answer, I want my problem back!

    Hi,

    thanks for your quick response. I think I got it - I changed the lines

    include.encrypt /
    include /

    to

    include.encrypt *
    include *

    Maybe the second line is not necessary? I just read before that you need both lines to declare what to backup in general and what to encrypt in special.
