You can also use the "dsmcutil update cad..." and "dsmcutil update
remoteagent..." commands to set the password on the passive node if you
don't want to fail it over every 90 days.
In fact, I would recommend setting up a batch file for each of your cluster
nodes that uses dsmcutil to update the password.

I resolve the same issue I had by taking the Shared TSM Scheduler
offline in the cluster admin, failover the cluster, then opened up the
TSM GUI which prompted me for a password...
Then I was about to start the Shared TSM Scheduler on both nodes and the
failover now works great.

Everytime i resync the password on the tsm server for the active node ,
ofcourse becomes out of sync with the passive node for the next login.
the registry is not holding the password and every 90 days this happens
the password expires. I cannot set password expiration to zero as its
against regulations. How can I have the registry hold these TSM
Am i doing something wrong? The redbook does not speak on this so im
lost. Any ideas appreciated.Thanks.
