    The install procedure missed a step.

    If you are using the V Center as TSM proxy, I suggest not doing so - setup a Proxy server.

    TSM for VE works in conjunction with TSM BA client of same or later version. When installing the BA Client, select VM Waare Tools to be installed.

    So, the install is:

    1. TSM BA 6.3.x with VM Ware Tools selected
    2. TSM for VE (this is actually a TDP add-on) 6.3.x

    Is the problem that you don't see components of TSM4VE on your vStorage Server (Data Mover) or you don't see the vCenter Plugin in vSphere Client?

    For the second case the registration of vCenter Plugin was not sucessfull. Check that Data Protection Services are running, IBM WebSphere AS is running and recheck your configuration. Afterwards you can try to register vCenter Plugin manuel by executing register_vcenter.bat in TDPs Program Directory. (C:\Progam Files\Common Data\....). Please chck Windows firewall settings too.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Tivoli\TDPVMware\VMwarePlugin\register_vcenter.cmd

    Usually it is a communication problem when the vCenter plugin was not registered. Please note that the syntax to call register_vcenter.cmd in help text is wrong. It is <vCenter> <user> <passwort> <gui port>

    My problem was solved. Problem is user access problem. The vm user must be administrator user.

    Thank you All.
