2. Template dsm.sys options file
* TSM Archiving on a Unix System
* This is the example dsm.sys file for use with Archive to the
* HFS at Oxford from a Unix client. As supplied, it must be
* edited as described below.
* In the line
* Nodename CHANGE.THIS
* you must alter the CHANGE.THIS to the registered name of
* your archive client node. This will (probably) be of the
* form something.archive or something_archive.dept
* As things are set up below, you will have to type in your
* password the first time you invoke the TSM software.
* It will then be stored on your client in encrypted form
* so that the scheduler can subsequently pass it to the
* server without needing input from you. TSM will change
* your password at roughly yearly intervals, and needs to
* tell you what the new password is when it does so. The line
* Mailprog MAIL-PROG root
* tells TSM to use the (mail) program specified by MAIL-PROG
* to mail this new password to root. You should replace
* MAIL-PROG by a suitable mail agent executable, and perhaps
* replace root by some more suitable username. For example
* Mailprog /usr/bin/mailx admin
* By default all users and members of all groups are permitted
* to use TSM (permissions on the executables being ok). To
* restrict this, uncomment the *Users and *Groups lines and
* substitute as argument a space-separated list of usernames
* and groupnames. If both lines are amended in this manner
* the users specified and all members of the groups specified
* will have access to TSM.
* The other lines set up default values for various options.
* You should not change any of these unless you know what you
* are doing (i.e. have read the TSM client manual), or under
* advice from OUCS.
* If your system is already using TSM backup, you will already
* have a dsm.sys file on your system. In this case copy the
* uncommented section below (after editing it as above)
* and append it to the end of your existing dsm.sys
* file; the file will then have two "stanzas", one for backup and
* one for archive. You will note that the names both of the TSM
* server and your node name for use with archiving are different
* from the names used for backup. You must take care to retain
* these differences
* If your system is only using TSM Archive, then save this file
* after editing it.
* This file must be placed in different places in the filestore
* depending on your platform (and in some cases operating system
* version). The following table lists where it should go, provided
* you have installed TSM software at its default location.
* IBM AIX /usr/bin/dsm.sys
* SGI IRIX a symbolic link from
* Linux /usr/bin/dsm.sys
* Sun Solaris 2.6/7/8/9 a symbolic link from
* Sun Solaris 10 /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys
