5. Backup options
Start the TSM GUI and click the
Backup files and directories button.
Clicking the button between the
Estimate button and the backup-type dropdown list
will display the current options for Backup. The default options are illustrated below but can be changed for
the duration of the current backup session. Clicking the
[Compress objects] check box will
considerably slow the backup and is not recommended. If your machine is memory-constrained and gives
Out of Memory errors when running a backup, then checking
[Use less memory]
may help. If this works for one session then you can add the line
MemoryEfficientBackup Yesto the
dsm.optoptions file and stop and restart the TSM scheduler.
