    Default LAN Free Backup Issue

    Hi All

    We have a setup of Lan free backup on AIX server. The backup is happening using TCP communication method on 2 tapes and it is slow. However I tried changing to Shareadmem commonmethod , but it gives error and then backup started with TCP commonmethod automatically but now only on 1 tape from 2 tape.

    ANR0900I Processing options file /usr/tivoli/tsm/StorageAgent/bin/dsmsta.opt.
    ANR7811I Using instance directory /usr/tivoli/tsm/StorageAgent/bin.
    ANR4726I The ICC support module has been loaded.

    ANR0993I Server initialization complete.

    Also I need some tunning to be done to make the lan free backup faster.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    In previous my system backup is slow in LAN-FREE path , then i have changed it to the shared memory , now i am able to take the 1 TB backup in 2 hours.

    put the lanfreecommmethod option to sharedmem. After that restart the TSM storage agent.

    please check the summary message after completion of the backup is that showing all the data sent using lan-free path or not

    example : LanFree data bytes: 534.43 GB

    If this showing zero please check the device names you have specified in the TSM server.

    If any errors send those errors.

    validate the lanfree from the TSM server weather the storage pool is able to take the lan-free backup or not.

    check this and revert the status.

    enablelanfree yes
    lanfreecommmethod SharedMem
    LANFREESHMPORT 1510

    just use these options. Performancewise SharedMem is indeed better than tcp/ip.

    Hi rcfkap,

    If you are using the TSM 5.3.4.9 client running on AIX 5.2 this is bug in TSM.

    Please go through the below link

    Hi rcfkap,

    No clues about this.
    But the error "Unable to attach shared memory block, errno = 24" look like a OS level error.

    Hi

    I added below variable in /etc/environment then the backup worked on Sharedmem. In 1 hr 500Gb was backed up offline.

    EXTSHM=ON
    export EXTSHM

    But this created the issue when we need to restart the oracle database. So after removing again the database started. So I think this need to be added in .profile of root only not in /etc/environment
