4. Running the TSM client for Novell NetWare 6.5
First you will need to ensure that the TSM installation directory is
in the NetWare load path.
Load the modules
Then start the TSM session:
If you have copied a saved password file
TSM.PWD into the
TSM installation directory, then you should just be logged in automatically. If not,
then you will be prompted first for your User Id (TSM node name), and then for your TSM password.
For the User Id you can accept the default displayed in angle brackets
which will be the TSM Nodename specified in the configuration file
DSM.OPT. The password you enter should be the
TSM password, as supplied by OUCS with your registration details or set by you using
a previous TSM client version.
You can now query your client account on the TSM server as below:
tsm> q inclexcl # lists order of processing of include/exclude directives
tsm> q sched # displays details of client's scheduled backup
tsm> q files # lists backups of partitions (if any)
In order to perform automated backups, it is necessary for TSM to
store encrypted NetWare passwords to access the various local
resources. To ensure that this happens, run the following commands:
tsm> q tsa
tsm> q tsa nds
You will be prompted at each command for a NetWare user name and
password; you should enter the details for the administrator account.
To check that the passwords have been stored successfully, you should
exit the current TSM session:
Then, from the server console, start a new session. You should not be
prompted for a password at the start of the session, and you should be
able to run the queries as before, again without being prompted for a
password. If this does not work, it is possible that the password file
is corrupted. In this case, exit the TSM session, delete all
.PWD files, and try again. Note, that starting a TSM
session and running a backup or query unprompted is an essential
prerequisite to running automatic scheduled backups.
Once you have set up your encrypted passwords correctly, you should
perform a test manual backup, for example:
tsm> incr sys:etc/test.txt
Further information and syntax on running manual backups and
restores of multiple files and volumes can be found at
Using the TSM Client Command Line Interface for Backup &
Restore. For known problems and limitations of the Tivoli Storage Manager V5.5 NetWare
Backup-Archive Client please visit the troubleshooting section.
