To backup one or more local file systems, open the TSM GUI and click the
Backup files and directories button. The screen will look similar to below.
Expand the view of file systems by clicking the + symbol adjacent to the Local
Individual file systems can be toggled as selected/deselected by clicking the grey tick boxes to the
left of the file systems.
Having selected the file systems ensure the backup type is selected - default is
Incremental (complete) - and click the
Backup button. The Task List
screen will next display as the TSM client constructs a list of local files and inspects them
against a list on the server. Files will then be backed up as illustrated below.
The backup can be halted at any time by clicking the red circle button in the Task List window.
A Detailed Status Report, as illustrated below, can be displayed by clicking the centre button in the
Task List window.
Closing the Detailed Status Report while the backup is running returns focus to the Task List window above.
Closing it when the backup is complete returns focus to the front window of the TSM GUI.
