Yes, by default that is the way it is done.  After you install TDP on the 
client, look in the ..Tivoli/TSM/Mssql directory.  The file sqlfull.smp is 
designed to be copied to sqlfull.cmd.  You need to edit the bat file for 
directories etc.  The backup command in it wil do a full backup of ALL DB's, 
even tempdb even thought this is not valid for restore.

Note also last line in file for doing autodelete of backups, you can specify 
how many copies you want to keep.

This info is valid for TDP MSSQL 1.1.2, I use here on about a dozen NT 4.0 
machines with SQL 6.5, 7.0 and 2000.   1.1.1 does not have autodelete, may be 
similar info for ver 2.2.

We are looking into starting to use TDP for SQL. Question from our DBA's:

When configuring the SQL Server backups is it possible to configure a backup
that will backup ALL the SQL Server databases (master, msdb, and user
created) with one command such that if additional databases are added to SQL
Server they are automatically backed up?  OR does TDP have to be configured
every time a new database is added in SQL Server?
