    Is it possible to force the TSM client installer to install only the language pack that you need instead of installing all of them? I can manually remove them but it would be nice if they didn't get installed in the first place.

    Used to be that way, but not anymore. They are all included now, it makes it simpler for most.

    I'm not sure removing them is worth the effort. It's only 100MB.

    For the Linux TSM Client 7.1.3 and up the extra language files are duplicated in 2 separate location ie

    - /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin
    - /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64

    excluding the EN_US folder the total size of the extra languages from both folders are 57o MB. Multipy this number on over 100 servers that is a lot of wasted space.

    Can someone confirm if one can simply remove ( rm) those extra language folders from both location

    Thanks
    Shad

    Has anyone looked into writing a script to remove unneeded language packs. I agree with the above post. It may not be a large amount of data on an individual node basis but multiply that by hundreds of nodes and you have a significant amount of data being backed up for no reason.
