[email protected]:/rdbms/product/oracle>cd /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64
[email protected]:/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64>cat dsm.opt
Servername TDP-ORACLE-BACKUP
DOMAIN ALL-LOCAL
[email protected]:/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64>

If I am reading your dsm.sys file correctly, it seems that you have defined the two nodes properly.

Now what does dsm.opt say under /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64 (/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin if you are at 32 bit)? Entry should be:

SErvername TDP-ORACLE-BACKUP

Under the same directory, what does tdpo.opt say? It should say something like:

DSMI_ORC_CONFIG /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/dsm.opt
DSMI_LOG /usr/tivoli/tsm/logs
TDPO_NODE IFS-SERVER-ORACLE8

Now at /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin: what is the entry at dsm.opt? It should be:

SErvername AIX-SERVER-BACKUP

also the file: dsm.tdp.opt must have the entry:

SErvername TDP-ORACLE-BACKUP

If you have these entries, try:

1. dsmc (without any switches) and you should get the BA environment
2. dsmc -se=TDP-ORACLE-BACKUP and you should see the Oracle backup environment

from what i can tell, that is your problem.

Your oracle instance should start with the opt file in the bin64 directory.

Your AIX instance should start with the opt file in the ba/bin directory.

your dsm.opt file should contain this:

SErvername AIX-SERVER-BACKUP

when you then try to start the dsmc command line, it will now log as your AIX box...

[email protected]:/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin>cat dsm.opt

SErvername AIX-SERVER-BACKUP
DOMAIN ALL-LOCAL

2. dsm.opt file (TDP Backup)
[email protected]:/rdbms/product/oracle>cd /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64
[email protected]:/rdbms/product/oracle>cd /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64>cat dsm.opt

SErvername TDP-ORACLE-BACKUP
DOMAIN "ALL-LOCAL"
DOMAIN "/u01"
DOMAIN "/u02"
