    Hi,

    There is an errorlog that will give us more information. PLease paste in the errors, and we can see where to go from there. Look in dsm.opt for its location if it is not in the same folder as dsmc.exe

    You can shutdown all TSM services and delete the c:\adsm.sys folder. Start up the services afterwards. This may clear up some errors.

    Start 'vssadmin list writers' If there is ANY errors, reboot the server. That is far simpler than debugging vss.......

    Hi,

    There is a ton of excludes that should be in you file to exclude locked os files and temporary files etc.

    Can you post the contents of this file c:\progra~1\tivoli\tsm\baclient\dsmerror.log

    If it is more than 100 lines, add it as an attachment.

    Also, please post:

    dsmc q include

    Hi,

    Does this file exist c:\ibm\informationserver\mcm\clientswitcherservice .exe? It appears that this file is part of VSS backup, but does no longer exist.
    If it does not, then you can create an empty file instead. That will get you out of one bug

    Try this: tsm> q incl


    And, as always, keep your tsm client up-to-date. Install the latest 6.2.x package.

    Your includes and excludes are fine.

    This line in your error log indicates that a file is missing

    06/07/2012 12:30:32 ANS5279E Error processing '\\az1npdbdx03\c$\ibm\informationserver\mcm\client switcherservice.exe': file not found.

    Please read this from IBM -> http://www-304.ibm.com/support/docvi...id=swg21419884

    If your BA client is old, then it may help to lift it up to a later release.
