TSM Client RedHat 7.1.6 configuration issue

#1
Installing the 7.1.6 BA client on a RedHat box.

If I include TCPServeraddress in the dsm.opt file only, the system complains:

ANS1033E An invalid TCP/IP address was specified.

and ends...

If I add it to the dsm.sys file it continues on, but then I get a warning each time that says:

ANS1691I The option 'TCPSERVERADDRESS' that was found in the options file '/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys' at the line number: 2 is not supported and will be ignored by the client.

I have not installed a client on RedHat for a long time. Not clear what the issue is. is this a bug in the client version?

With it in dsm.sys
Code:
servername        phxrsp10
tcpport           1500
tcpserveraddress  10.96.13.131

# dsmc
ANS1691I  The option 'TCPPORT' that was found in the options file '/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys' at the line number: 2 is not supported and will be ignored by the client.
ANS1691I  The option 'TCPSERVERADDRESS' that was found in the options file '/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys' at the line number: 3 is not supported and will be ignored by the client.

Note the server has no issue getting to the tsm server, telnet server 1500 connects.

The profile has:

dsm.opt should have only this line:

servername phxrsp10

dsm.sys should have all this stuff:

servername phxrsp10
nodename phxrhi10
tcpserveraddress 10.96.13.131
tcpport 1500
commmethod tcpip
httpport 1581
inclexcl /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/filesystems.opt
largecommbuffers yes
maxcmdretries 4
passwordaccess generate
schedmode prompted
tcpbuffsize 32
tcpnodelay yes
tcpwindowsize 255
txnbytelimit 25600
resourceutilization 4

Thanks for your response... Just getting back to this.

The issue is my configuration in profile. I was using:

export DSM_DIR=/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin
export DSM_CONFIG=/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys
export DSM_LOG=/var/adm/tsm

Instead of

export DSM_DIR=/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin
export DSM_CONFIG=/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.opt
export DSM_LOG=/var/adm/tsm

Using the latter, works without the errors. Using the former will make you think you are going crazy.

None of our existing Unix clients (50+) have used a configuration in profile before.
