    I currently have a TSM server running Red Hat ES 5 with TSM6.1.1 and I just created a 2nd instance of TSM on the same physical server in a shared library scenario, both have the same IP addresses, but different port numbers.

    I am trying to manually backup the DB on the new TSM server and getting this in act log:

    08/20/2009 14:36:12 ANR2017I Administrator PASCHUMACHER issued command: BACKUP

    any help would be appreciated. thanks!

    Are those the only errors? Do you have scratch available? Is it possibly trying to mount a tape and the library inventory is screwed up, or does this only happen when you run the DB backup?

    yes those are the only errors (so far) i have 56 scratch tapes and so far this has only happened when I try to do a backup of the library client. i havent tried to backup anything else yet.

    yes i can ping server and communicate back and forth.

    tsm: TSMPS>ping server cronus
    ANR1706I Ping for server 'CRONUS' was able to establish a connection.

    tsm: CRONUS>ping server tsmps
    ANR1706I Ping for server 'TSMPS' was able to establish a connection.

    output of q libr from TSMPS (library client)

    yep, message meaning is clear, tcpip problem, so...
    It happend only for database backup ?
    Since the begining of installation of library sharing ?
    or did dbbackup runs fine before with the same configuration and problem appear recently ?
    Between the last good backup and the first erroneous one, what happend on network configuration ?
    Maybe I take a wrong way but... I do mind about message ANR2980E

    IBM doesn't seem to have an answer either. This is a new TSM 6.1 instance on the same physical server as the library manager, using the same IP but different TCP port #. I have only tried a DB backup so far. I don't have any nodes configured yet. I have always tested my lib client to lib manager comms with a manual DB backup before i kick anything else off.

    The error is from DB2, calling the TSM API to back up to the server. Return code -50 means that the API couldn't connect to the server. So the first thing to check is that the API is configured correctly, and that DB2, in turn, is configured to use the API correctly.

    There's a topic in the V6 library that goes through the necessary steps to do this. Hopefully it'll help pinpoint just what's going wrong...

    This is just a guess...but have you double-checked the DSMI_CONFIG environment variable that is set in the ".../sqllib/userprofile"? If you don't have it set, make sure you set it and recycle the TSM instance and try it again.

    Like I said...only a guess.

    actually got an update from IBM on this issue. it looks like I defined the tape drives incorrectly being this is now an instance of TSM rather than a stand-alone "server" I defined the drives the old school way.

    I asked why it was saying TCP/IP communication failure for something like tape drives, and they couldn't tell me.
