    Unanswered: Configuring TSM client for DB2 on AIX

    Hi , I 'm trying to configure TSM client for DB2 8.2 on 64 bit. The person who installed TSM client on the AIX box is on extended holiday.

    1. How should I verify TSM client and server are properly setup

    2. Then I need to configure TSM API client for 64 bit version

    Could someone tell me where I can locate the documentation. I have checked in Data recovery and High Availability Guide and Reference but it has limited information.( It doesn't say how to configure dsm.sys and dsm.opt files)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi , Thanks for the information. But I can't see any information about setting up dsm.opt and dsm.sys files. Do you know why and where to find out those information please ?

    dsm.opt:
    SErvername NAME_OF_SERVER_IN_DSM.SYS

    dsm.sys:
    SErvername ANY_NAME
    NODENAME NAME_OF_THE_NODE_IN_TSM
    COMMMethod TCPip
    TCPPort <PORT>
    TCPServeraddress <IP-ADDRESS>

    Hi , thanks for the information.

    Are these dsm.sys parms need to be updated just for the TSM server or local db2 server as well ? Where can I find some details( documentation) please ?
    Thanks.

    Possibly in the TSM docs. You can also take a look at the following redbook:

    Thanks for both of you, It works. The Redbook is very helpful too !

    basically I created dsm.sys and dsm.opt files with all the necessary parms in /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64 directory (followed the redbook steps).

    I have bit confused about various clients that TSM talks about! Can someone briefly clarify the role of these various clients please ?
    TSM client
    API client
    Backup-Archive client (in /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin directory)
