    Default Test tsm server install on linux

    Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to setup my own test TSM server at work. I would like to do this on Linux and was wondering which free Linux version TSM Server would work best with?

    I realize that IBM only support Red Hat and SUSE, however for my test server I don't want to install a proprietary OS.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    you can download both for free but if you really do not want that, try CEntOS - it is RH clone and works well with TSM

    If you do not plan to use IBM support. Then go with the flavor you know best.

    Thanks I was not aware that these were free downloads, i.e. SUSE REDHAT, if for what ever reason they don't work then I will try CENTOS.

    I've done test installs on all 3 (all x86_64)
    SLES10 sp1 & sp2
    RedHat 5.2
    CentOS 5.3 and 5.4

    Be sure to follow the install guide, it is quite helpful as a few items are not exactly intuitive. I also recommend this doc (sg247718.pdf) - still in "draft"
    http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/wi...echnical+Guide

    http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/Redbooks...7718.html?Open

    Sorry - this was the old version

    Best of luck!

    I have been running TSM Server on both OpenSuSE, Scientific Linux and CentOS without any issue.
    Please see my old post with minimum requirement for Linux to get it to work.

    Hi,

    ftp://serviceb.boulder.ibm.com/tivol...nuxX86.tar.bz2

    All you need - works 30days in try'n'buy

    If you want v6, look in the directory structure - it is there.

    You should probably start a new thread for this...
    I'm fairly certain you absolutely have to install the client on the server. If you are going to back up DB2, I recommend looking into TDP.

    You can find the media here (you'll have to dig around)

    Hi,

    just a comment - there is NO TDP for DB2 - DB2 has built-in capability to backup to TSM. All you need is TSM API

    Default backup storage pool

    thanks ..
    i finally installed the server and client api and configured the system accordingly

    dsm.sys file /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin/dsm.sys

    SErvername broserver * Name of this stanza
    COMMMethod TCPip
    TCPPort 1500 * Port where Server is listening
    TCPServeraddress localhost * IP-Adress of TSM Server
    NODename rohit_db2 * Must match node name on TSM Server
    TCPCLIENTAddress localhost * IP-Adress of machine running
    PASSWORDAccess Generate
    Schedmode polling
    Schedlogname /tmp/dsmsched.log
    Errorlogname /tmp/dsmerror.log
    Schedlogret 7
    Errorlogret 7

    dsm.opt file /home/db2inst1/tsm/dsm.opt

    SErvername broserver

    environment variables

    DSMI_DIR=/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin
    DSM_CONFIG=/home/db2inst1/tsm/dsm.opt
    export DSMI_LOG=/home/db2inst1/tsm

    all available to all the the users

    but i stuck while configuring the copygroups
    i had one doubt about the storage pools
    my thought was to make backup in some directory
    and not on some tapes , separate drive or else

    is it possible to make backup in some destination folder and restore from there ?

    thanks

    Hi,

    you do not need tapes - use device class disk to build a stgpool or define new device class of type FILE.
    See the docs.
