If you really want to isolate it, change the IP address to one in an 
unused/isolated subnet/vlan and don't give it a route statement.  Make sure 
DHCP is not enabled on any of your other NICs.

Subject: [ADSM-L] Neutering a test server

Recently, for migration/testing purposes,  I did a full conversion of a
5.5 server to 6.2 on my test TSM server.

I would like to continue using this server to test additional upgrades
without having to wipe and rebuild.

Unfortunately, since it is a copy of a real server, whenever I fire it up,
it keeps trying to "reach out and touch" other TSM servers that it has
definitions to (library manager, etc), thus producing constant error
messages due to invalid passwords, etc.

I am concerned if I play with it to do like things mass-deletes, etc,  it
will try to do things like purge/release tapes, etc.

Besides adding to DSMSERV.OPT:


What else can I do to neuter it to avoid possible problems?

In this same vein, is there a simple way to remove the current instance
and install/configure another one?
