The TSM scheduler is normally installed automatically with the HFS TSM client software for Linux. Before following the instructions below, please verify via our page on checking the TSM scheduler on Linux that you do not already have a TSM scheduler If you are certain that you do not already have a TSM scheduler already installed, it will probably be because of one of the following:
  • TSM was hand-configured on your machine, rather than set up with the HFS TSM installer.
  • The existing TSM scheduler was removed from your machine.
  • You are registered on OX_HFS_VPN for which there are no schedules.
  1. On the command line, run as root:

    /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/HFSscheduler on
    This will both start the scheduler and configure the system to start it at boot time.

  2. You have now finished setting up the TSM scheduler service and it should now start to run. This can be checked as described in our page on checking the TSM scheduler on Linux.
