We have two separate locations that house TSM servers. They back up
their databases to each other. Mixture of TSM V5.5 and V6.2 is not a
problem. The VOLHISTORY and DEVCONFIG statements in the dsmserv.opt file
each define two separate files - one is local and the other is an NFS
mount in the campus cloud. Plus each server does its normal file backup
as an ordinary TSM client to a TSM server at the other site. It all
works fine.

The documentation in the "TSM Administrator's Guide" is pretty good on
this topic.
