    Hi All,

    I am wondering if anyone has any input on the following issue/configuration.

    Essentially we have two UNIX systems that we backup, currently we backup each on a daily basis and we do a monthly backup which we have a seperate policy setup for. Currently to run the monthly backup we manually edit the dsm.sys to change the node-name as we have two nodes setup one for daily and one for monthly.

    In the windows environment we can have the two dsm.opt files, one for daily and one for monthly and have them running without issues from the schedule. Prior to myself as administrator for TSM, we had been informed that for UNIX couldn't have the same setup as with windows in being able to have the two different schedular services running essentially each linked to a dsm.opt file. However in a recent health check we had with a TSM consultant from IBM we had asked the question and was informed that should be able to setup the two scheulding on UNIX to not have to manually intervene.

    Just wondering if anyone could provide any information or good references to review for such configurations.

    Thanks,
    DaJ

    Hi,

    For monthly backup configuration, we have to mention 2 instance entry in dsm.sys and also have to create separate opt file(dsm_mo.opt) for monthly backup.

    Step1:

    In dsm.sys, have mention two stances like below

    SErvername daily
    NODename dailynodename
    COMMmethod TCPip
    TCPPort 1500
    TCPServeraddress xx.xx.xx.xx.xx
    compression no
    passwordaccess generate
    TCPWindowsize 64
    TCPBuffsize 32
    TCPNodelay Yes
    TXNBytelimit 25600
    LARGECOMmbuffers Yes
    SCHEDLOGname /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmsched.log
    SCHEDLOGRetention 7,D
    ERRORLOGname /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmerror.log
    ERRORLOGRetention 7,D
    Schedmode Prompted

    SErvername monthly
    NODename monthlynodename
    COMMmethod TCPip
    TCPPort 1500
    TCPServeraddress xx.xx.xx.xx.xx
    compression no
    passwordaccess generate
    TCPWindowsize 64
    TCPBuffsize 32
    TCPNodelay Yes
    TXNBytelimit 25600
    LARGECOMmbuffers Yes
    SCHEDLOGname /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmsched.log
    SCHEDLOGRetention 7,D
    ERRORLOGname /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmerror.log
    ERRORLOGRetention 7,D
    Schedmode Prompted

    step 2:

    create new opt file (dsm_mo.opt) with below line

    SErvername monthly

    step 3:

    update tsm password

    dsmc set password node_tsm_password node_tsm_passoword -se=monthly

    step 4:

    after password update, login to monthly node like below and take backup

    dsmc -se=monthly


    Thanks
