    Hi guys,

    Simple question: Is it at all possible to backup a database with a TDP for SQL through a firewall without opening ports as described in http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infoc...=/com.ibm.itsm.client.doc/t_cfg_firewall.html (for ordinary nodes) ?

    I just get this:

    Starting SQL database backup...

    Connecting to TSM Server as node 'SQLSERVER'...


    Total SQL backups selected: 22
    Total SQL backups attempted: 0
    Total SQL backups completed: 0
    Total SQL backups excluded: 0
    Total SQL backups inactivated: 0

    Throughput rate: 0.00 Kb/Sec
    Total bytes transferred: 0
    Elapsed processing time: 0.00 Secs

    ANS1017E (RC-50) Session rejected: TCP/IP connection failure

    You need to open ports :)

    If Security is concerned, they can limit access to just the SQL server by limiting port access to just that one server via ACL using the server's NIC MAC address.
