    Hi All,

    Need a support for Lanfree configuration. This is first time i am doing it and struggling alot.

    Screnario is:
    Storage Agent (Client machine) --> Server A
    TSM Server + library Client --> Server B
    Library manager (TSM) --> Server C

    Server A connect with Server B with NAT IP. Server B is managing client data & Server C is only Library manager.

    I tried testing with making Server B as ibrary Manager and it works fine. But now when same task i am doing in production environment, where C is only Library Manager and now when i am running backup getting below error:

    *****In dsmsta log i can see below logs

    You need to make sure you have the storage agent defined as a server on the library client and manager so the library manager can talk to the storage agent.

    So the process is setup the storage agent to point to the library client TSM server and define the storage agent on both the client and library manager servers. The library client will pass the drive request to the manager who will then pass the info back to the storage agent on which drive it is allowed to use. You will define the paths for the storage agent on the library manager as you would for any library client.

    I covered this back in 2006 and the process is still the same.

    Hi Chad,

    Storage agent is defined as server on library client and Library manager both already, still not helping.

    validate lanfree is also working fine

    OK so the library is defined as a shared library on the client that points to the library on the library manager. The library manager has the library defined and drives defined. The storage agent needs to talk to the library manager through the same IP as the library client has defined for the library manager. In other words the STA needs to be able to reach the library client over the same defined IP as the client uses to communicate with the library manager, if it does not then the setup wont work. Also the storage agent needs to be defined to the library manager and client using the same IP. This bit me in the ass years ago when my storage agent could talk to the manager but over a different IP than what the library client used.

    Thanks Marclant, But library is already defined.

    Chad@ Below are my ServerB (Library Client ) and Server C (Library Manager) server information.
    NOTE: Server A (Client machine) can connect Server A and Server B with there NAT IP (Start with 92.**.**.**) not with Original IP (Start with 10.**.**.**).
    Please suggest what should i do in these configuration to make it correct.

    Adding Last Server is Library Client where client data exists.

    So here is how I had IBM explain it to me. The Storage Agent connects to the library client and the library client then contacts to the library manager across its defined server IP and then attempts to direct the client to the library manager across that IP. Well if the client cannot connect to the library manager over the defined IP the connection fails. You will need to add the Storage Agent to the VLAN the servers use for communication or redefine the library client to talk to the library manager over the VLAN that the storage agent uses.

    Have to follow the evidence. The suggestion based on the error is two parts, you confirmed the first part, now onto the 2nd.

    You need to get rid of ANR8389E before being able to move forward.

    Thanks a lot for your replies. I helps me a lot. Unfortunately lanfree process got red light from client.

    Still thanks a lot.
