flashcopymanager config and options files in non-default locations ?

Hello,

for v7.1 tdp for MSSQL flashcopymanager these work just fine:
/SQLCONFigfile=
/SQLOPTfile=

But they do not work for v6 tdp for MSSQL flashcopymanager.
We need to protect SQL server 2005 so we can't use v7 tdp client, and our tdp opt file is in non-default location ?

Thanks
Vilius M.

Not doable in way you want. FCM v6 uses dsm.opt in default location, see
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21597023
The workaround for the MMC GUI is to use a script that accepts the options file to use. When the script starts it will make a backup of the original dsm.opt file and copy in the specified opt file in its place. The script starts the MMC and any changes made via property sheets will be saved to that options file. When the MMC is closed, the script will copy the dsm.opt file back to the original location.

This can be done using the sample PowerShell script which can be found at the end of this document.
