    the first paragraph of "help generate backupset" states that only BA client data can be referenced

    Use this command to generate a backup set for a backup-archive client
    node. A backup set is a collection of a client's active backed up data,
    stored and managed as a single object, on specific media, in server
    storage. While the server allows you to create a backup set for any
    client node, a backup set can only be used by a backup-archive client.

    ok
    i can add a tdp node to backup set and use the tsm client to restore the sql backup?
    do you think that's a good idea?
    thanks

    I do not know if you can do anything with that backupset. The BA client will not be able to restore a filespace laid down by a TDP. Why do you need to have a backupset? Are you trying to transfer the data to another location. If so then do a SQL backup dump to disk and back it up with the BA Client. Then you can create a backupset of that dump file.

    I got nothing for you other than if you are willing to halt Notes you can
    - register a new node specifically for this purpose,
    - backup the directory structure that contains the nsf files using the BA Client and then
    - create a backupset of that node after restarting Notes

    Since I am not familiar with Notes administration I have no way of knowing if you can do anything with these files on the receiving end after you restore using the backupset.
