AIX System Backup Node Password

I have TSM 5.2.6.3 and AIX 4.3.3. I have two nodes set up on TSM. IFS_Server_oracle8 which handles the backups for the databases. It works fine. The node for backing up the AIX system IFS-SERVER does not. I get error ANR8214E. I know that TDPOCONF SHOWENV -tdpo_optfile=/usr/tivoli/..../tdpo_*database*.opt [Enter] will show me which node is associated with each tdop.opt file. Every *.opt file I try shows me that it's associated with the IFS-SERVER-ORACLE8 node. I want to run TDPOCONF PASSWord command to change the password, but I don't know which -tdop-optfile=?????? to use to change the password for the TSM node that handles the AIX backup (IFS-SERVER) NOT the node that handles the database backups (IFS-SERVER_ORACLE8). I can easily change the node pasword on TSM with the 'update node IFS-SERVER password' command, but I don't know how to change it on AIX 4.3.3.

Am I missing something here? Please respond with any thoughts!!!!

Hi.

the tdpo-optfile= is for the Oracle instance of TSM, the TDP. you would do a tdpoconf password -tdpo_optfile=/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/tdpo_optfile???.opt to change your password of the Oracle instance...

For the AIX side, if you change the password within TSM and then run a dsmc on the aix box, it will ask you to reinsert your password since it will not be able to connect...

By default, if you just start the TSM services on your AIX box, it will use the dsm.sys file located in the base directory of TSM (/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin)

I think you could also use dsmc set password...

Hope this helps...

Steph

Thanks for your reply. I tested by going to the AIX (oracle) box and running:
[email protected]>dsmc [Enter]
it vrought me to the tsm prompt...
tsm> q se [Enter] and it gave me.......
tsm> q se

Here are the domains I have, and IFS-Server is the one that isn't working. Note the output from above is pointing at IFS-Server-Oracle8 which as we noted is the Oracle-Domain Node on that box......

toxy13, for give me but I am a bit of a TSM (not to mention AIX) novice how do I finish that command, especially given i do not know which file is the -optfile?

dsmc sched -optfile=?????? - all the tdpo option files relate to oracle backup domain, as stephen stated a bit earlier here...... sorry I am confused.....

ok, i think you're running your tdp backup as a schedule, right?

if the password expires, you can't update it with tdpoconf update password, you need to update your dsmc sched.

use: dsmc sched -optfile={path to your tdpo optfile} .. you wrote "/usr/tivoli/..../tdpo_*database*.opt"

[enter]

enter your nodename and update password, then restart your tdp service/daemon/manifest (i'm not familiar with aix, but on linux it works fine ;-) )

I am little crossed by your problem. Let me try to write what I think your problem is.

You have a node that is running Oracle. You are backing up the database (I would suspect you are using RMAN), and the filesystem, is this correct?

If this is so, we need to be running two TSM schedules one each for the TDP for Oracle and the other for the Filesystem/OS. In this case, the dsm.sys would be multi-stanza: the first part for the BA of the filesystem/OS, and the second part for the TDP for Oracle.

This dsm.sys is then associated with two TSM Scheduler: one for each backup environment. This way, the passwords are set independently. The bin file tdpoconf would set the password for the TDP for Oracle side, and by running dsmc without switches can set the BA client password.

Thank You very much, Moon-Buddy, but this still doesn't solve it. here's the output when I log on to the production server (AIX 4.3.3) I logon as either root or oracle - doesn't matter. I run dsmc [Enter]. The node I am shown is IFS-Server-Oracle8 shich is the database backup node. I don't get challenged for a password, cause the pwd is sync'd with TSM (update node ifs-server-oracle8). The node that backs up the OS/System files is IFS-Server. Here's the output from tsm>dsmc [Enter] and tsm>q se. Also, please find the listing from TSM of the associated nodes, and also output from dsm.sys which does show both nodes.......

By the way, I have tried the http:client interface, however I get denied opening that one too.

Here's the TSM q node output I didn't include last post.

IFS-SERVER-ORACLE8 AIX ORACLE-DOMAIN <1 <1 No
IFS-SERVER2 AIX AIX_SERVER_DO- <1 7 No

are the node/admins locked on your tsm server?

Quick question, what does the dsm.opt file look like within the /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin folder?

Technically, the dsm.sys has 2 stenzas, one for your SERVERNAME TDP-ORACLE-BACKUP and the other for SERVERNAME AIX-SERVER-BACKUP. So you should have your Oracle tdp.opt that is the first stenza within the dsm.sys and the dsm.opt should be SERVERNAME AIX-SERVER-BACKUP...

toxy13 Yes at the time I cut and paster that outpu, the were locked, but I have unlocked them via tsm (unlock node ifs-server ; unlock node ifs-server-oracle8)

-Stephan Here is the contents dsm.opt file but it doesn't really tell me much.....I think there is another one someplace else...let me look.

[email protected]:/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin>cat dsm.opt
SErvername TDP-ORACLE-BACKUP
DOMAIN "ALL-LOCAL"
DOMAIN "/u01"
DOMAIN "/u02"
DOMAIN "/u03"
DOMAIN "/u06"

ok, let recreate:
you want to update the password for your normal aix tsm client NOT the tdp oracle client, right?
i think you need a 2. dsm.opt with:

SERVERNAME AIX-SERVER-BACKUP
...

then start dsmc -optfile=[your 2. optfile]
