6.5. How can I stop the TSM scheduler running?

In certain circumstances you may wish to stop running scheduled backups. For example:
  • Your machine is never connected to the university network when the overnight schedules run, and so you do not need a scheduler running.
  • You are running a series of initial manual backups in order to send a full copy of your data to the HFS, before later moving on to use the scheduled ones.
  • You lost data and have as yet to restore it with TSM: in this case you should switch off TSM services to ensure that no further automatic backups run before or during your restore.
For how to stop the scheduler, please see the relevant instructions for Windows, Mac, Linux and Solaris.
