1.5. What is a TSM nodename?

Your TSM nodename is the name of your backup or archive account. We ask that users have one account per operating system instance. Nodenames for backup are usually of the form username-text-dept/college, e.g. ABCD1234-MYLAPTOP-EXETER. This is called the personal desktop/laptop (flexible name) type. There are other types of TSM backup nodenames available to IT Support Staff only, as detailed below.
