    Hey guys,

    I am new to TSM and want to setup TSM 6.2 for backing up single folder/file.

    I set up TSM in very primitive environment where my server and client is a single RHEL machine. My first concern is does it support backing up data from local machine and saving the backup to any local folder rather than tapes/disks.

    I have successfully installed and connected to server. Now from client GUI when I try to take backup it says ANS5092S - Server out of Data Storage Space.

    Following leads might help in figuring out my problem:

    1) q stg shows default pools but their 'estimated capacity' is 0.
    2) I found in administrator guide that we have to run define volume with formatsize option. I did that still I see no progress as I do not get completion successful message
    3) q vol says ANR2034E QUERY VOLUME: No match found using this criteria.

    Thanks in advance!

    The TSM Client can be installed on the same system that is hosting the TSM Server.


    "... saving the backup to any local folder rather than tapes/disks..."

    Your going to need to define a file device class where its pointing to a local folder.

    1) q stg shows default pools but their 'estimated capacity' is 0.

    The 'estimated capacity' is just that ' estimated'.
    Its the %Util that we should be intereseted in.

    here are two docs regarding about 'estimated capacity'.

    2) I found in administrator guide that we have to run define volume with formatsize option. I did that still I see no progress as I do not get completion successful message

    What was the full define volume syntax that we issue?
    Did we define the volume to the correct storage pool (q vol stg=pool_name)?
    Are there any error message in the actlog?
    Was there enough space on the disk?

    3) q vol says ANR2034E QUERY VOLUME: No match found using this criteria.

    If we are getting ANR2034E more than likely the volume in question is not define to a stg pool.

    Within the backup copy group, there is a parameter called copy destination, what stg pool is this parameter pointing to ( q co f=d)
    ?

    Good Luck,
    Sias
