    Hi. When using TSM server scripts, is it possible to "timestamp" a file easily?

    Let's say i am backuping up the volhistory through server scripts, using command "backup volhistory /TSMbackup/DRM/volhistory.bkp", each day, that file will get overwritten. Is there a way to timestamp that file name?

    I know, i could use a bash script to launch the job, or run a process to rename afterwards on the unix box, but i am looking for the simplest way.

    thanks.

    Not when run within TSM.

    I do this outside of TSM - on the host.
