How to make dsmcad and scheduler work?

Hello, it's already quite a while I lastly touched TSM. Now I need to make TDP for Domino work again and I am strugling with the scheduler and webclient part. Could you, please, give me some advice?

B/A client and TDPDOM are installed correctly and both "dsmc incremental" and "domdsmc selective" work. Dsmcad works fine for BA scheduler and runs regular flie-level backups correctly.

What doesn't work correctly is the dsmcad and TDP scheduler part. No client server communation related to TDP seems to be happening and nothing is reported. The webclient is accessible in the browser, but doesn't allow to log in.

Am I missing something? Thank you.

Code:
/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys

SErvername TSMSERV1
  NODename              SATURN2
  TCPServerAddress      tsm
  COMPRESSION           no
  DEDUPLication         no
  PASSWORDAccess        generate
  MANAGEDServices       schedule webclient
  DOMNODE               /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/domino/bin/domdsmc_notes/domdsm.cfg
  SCHEDLOGRetention     3 D

Not sure what version of TDP Domino that you are using.

In the following red book on page 45, there are some info about the scheduler for the TDPDOM

http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg245247.pdf

We know that the TSM B/A Client schedule and manual backup work.
We also know that via the TDP we can perform a manual backup.

Since the system is also hosting a TDP.

I know that there are going to be two sets of schedule daemon.

One set for the TSM B/A Client, and the other for the TDP.

To start the schedule daemon for the TDP.

dsmc sched -optfile=/usr/tivoli/tsm/client|/domino/bin/dsm.opt /dev/null 2>&1

If we want to use the CAD.
I can't recall if we can use 1 CAD daemon or 2 CAD daemon.

Good Luck,
Sias

Thank you, LED. I will go through the Red Book again, I think I've already read it once, but will do it again.

Your summary is correct. I am unsure how to configure the dsmcad for two schedulers and generally I don't get the whole concept complete. Unfortunatelly the documentation doesn't desribe it enough. Then I have the same doubts about web client.

According to this KB, there is no need for two webclients, just a single one, which makes me think the same about CAD:

Edit: Domino is in the latest version 9 and TSM & TDP freshly installed also on the latest patches.

OK, it seems that on Linux the recommend way to schedule TDP is to use the B/A client scheduler and simply schedule a script with domdsmc command. On Windows, however, you can create multiple schedulers... As both domdsmc command and the standard scheduler work fine in my case I can do it this way.

Then I still strugle with the webclient part. I will paste it here if I solve it :)
