    Hi Pro's

    I have checked if I shall start to use the SESSIONINITiation=serveronly option for some nodes located in our DMZ.
    The only way I have found how to restore data is to create a schedule with the "action=restore". I believe this is not a very flexible way to do a restore due I can't find how to use pitd and pitt if I restore within a schedule.

    -Is there any better and more granular way to do restores?
    -Is it possible to use pitt and pitd?

    Forgot to ask...:

    -Are you able to "browse" the node data before you restore and check which versions that exist in the backup?
    -Are you able to relocate the data to another dir when restoring?

    Kind of, but you need a 3rd machine that is on the same side of the firewall as the Spectrum Protect Server. Start the client from a Windows Command Prompt:
    cd "c:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient"
    dsm -virtualnodename={dmz_node}
    Note that you will need to know the password for that node. You will be able to click on Restore on that machine and browse the files. I guess you could do the restore on that machine and then manually copy the files over to the original machine.

    I don't believe so. When you restore from the command line, you pass the source and destination, but there's no option for that, it's just based on the position in the command.

    Ok, thanks! Maybe this kind of config isn't so bad after all. First I thought that SESSIONINITiation=serveronly was difficult to use in daily restores but your answers gave me new hope! Thanks!
