TSM client is on DMZ


I have one window TSM client is on DMZ. only TCP port 1500 is open on Firewall. Manual backup is working fine. But schedule backup is not initiating either by Accepter or Scheduler. Seems i am missing something on opt file. Please suggest correct configuration.

Is port 1500 opened bi-directional?
If the client can do a manual backup, the scheduler should be able to connect to the server as well, it's using the same ports.

What's in the dsmsched.log after you start the scheduler, should see an attempt to query the server for schedules. Does this happen:
- if no, what's the error(s)?
- if yes, what's logged at the time the schedule is supposed to start?


Yes Port 1500 is bidirectional. Here is dsmsched.log after starting TSM Accepter service. Problem is Scheduler service is not starting at the time the schedule is support to start. Hence Backup is missing every day.

Your scheduler is using the server prompted mode. Is your server able to contact the client scheduler on the indicated port (TCP:51065) ?
Note that this port is dynamic and will change at each dsmcad restart, unless you've fixed it with the webports.
