There you mention something that has been missing in TSM already for a long 
time. A real cluster-aware AIX client. 

We use HA-commands to get the volumegroups that are under HA-control and then 
make a backup of the filesystems within those VG's.

Commands like:

Hi *SM-ers!
Ok, I understand that include.fs is not available on AIX, so that will make
things more difficult.
Let me first explain what our AIX guys try to accomplish, maybe we are
trying to re-invent the wheel.
We are trying to create a standard backup solution for our HACMP clusters.
To put is simple: we want to backup all filesystems which are part of the
sharedvg. We would like to create a standard script, which can be used on
all HACMP nodes.
How do other people solve this?
Thank you very much for your reply in advance!
Kindest regards,
Eric van Loon

But your backups now run so much faster!  :-)
Checking the Unix client manual, I find no such "Include.FS" option, so what
you probably want to do is "Include /home/.../*".
Would that Query Inclexcl flagged such things.
