    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:
    Code:
    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

    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

    there should be dsm.opt.smp and dsm.sys.smp sample files in the install dir, if you need another example.

    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.
