Web Client Could not Browse local drives or mapped drives


Active Newcomer
Greetings All,
\i have configure the web client on my clients' node. the problem is that when restoring files. I cannot browse the workstation local drive or mapped drives. For more details, if I configured the web client on workstation A and I was accessing the webclient of that machine on workstation B, I could not see the local and mapped drive of station B to restore files to a location in station B.

Please help

Thanks Moon for reply.
What I mean is to select a location to restore my files to that location. I need to browse local and mapped drive of workstation B to restore/retrieve my files into B.

Ineed to understand what you are trying to do.

Are you restoring files backed up on Node A to Node B, and that you are attempting to connect to the TSM server via node B?

If so, on node B, enter:

dsmc retrieve -fromnode=node_A \\Node_A\universe\saturn.planet c:\

Note that you need to know the source and destination.

What I mean is that:
I configure a web client on a node A and the user on that node will archive files. Another user on node B will go his browser and access node A wTSM web client on address http://node_A:1581 and he will select file(s) to retrieve with no problem. The problem is that the node B user wants to select a destination on his local workstation to retreive files to but his drives are not listed when he clicks "Select" button. See attached..

I see two solutions:

1: Mapped a drive letter or NFS mount from system A to system B.
I'm suspecting that the two system are running the same OS.

2: Install and configure the TSM Client Web on system B.
Then on system B - http//node_B:1581 then backup/archive the data that you want on system B.

Good Luck,
