    Red face Unanswered: TSM & backup

    Hi,

    We have TSM installed on our environment.
    We back up the sybase servers to disk and then after we copy to tape.
    I know that it exists a module to backup directly to tape but we need to buy SQL-Backtrack (quite expensive).

    Is anyone already have an idea on that issue ?

    Thank you

    Don't need to use SQLBacktrack backuping a database in a tape. The unique limitation is that this tape will use a "Sybase format". Not possible to mix Unix and Sybase tape in the same tape.

    The dump database sybntax will provide you a lot of help. About the tape, a lot of parameters exist for this command (init, density, blocksize, capacity, ...)

    TSM means Tivoli Storage Manager, I know that it is possible to backup on tape but my question is more related to the backup on tape via tivoli storage manager server.

    We operate exactly in the same way as you. Didn't buy
    SQL Backtrack, so dumped to disk and let TSM save
    those flat files. Of course, we aren't happy with the
    investment in disks required by this strategy.
