Hi,

I am backing up linux servers with TSM 6.2. Therefore I am using a script with the dsmc i command, executed by a cronjob. Everything works fine.

I am now trying to encrypt the backups. It seems, this does not work. I am only asked once to enter an encryption password after a reboot of the server. When using tshark to check the transferred data it is NOT encrypted. When tying to recover a file I am not asked for the encryption password.

Are there any hints how to get a clou what could be wrong? Here are my config files (dsm.sys and inclexcl.txt)

SErvername XXX
COMMMethod TCPip
TCPPort 1680
TCPServeraddress XXX.domain.com
ENCRYPTKey prompt
ENCRYPTIONType AES128

NODename YYY

INCLExcl /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/inclexcl.txt

---

include.encrypt /
include /
exclude.dir /dev
exclude.dir /dev/shm
exclude.dir /lib/init/rw
exclude.dir /proc
exclude.dir /tmp

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

thanks for your quick response. I think I got it - I changed the lines

include.encrypt /
include /

to

include.encrypt *
include *

Maybe the second line is not necessary? I just read before that you need both lines to declare what to backup in general and what to encrypt in special.
