Then...why not add paging space to that system?  Disk is quite cheap
these days.  Until you get the additional disks, you can tailor
server options like BUFPoolsize to minimize TSM memory utilization.
Also have your AIX people look into what else is running on that
server that might not have to, or might be problematic, as the
other processes are also using memory.
