To open the TSM client go
[All Programs] >
[Tivoli Storage Manager] >
Click on the
menu and choose the
[Setup Wizard] option to display the following.
Choose the Help me configure the TSM Client Scheduler option.
Next. A screen similar to that below
Next, and you will see the following screen. Ensure that the Install a new or additional scheduler option is
highlighted, then click the
Give the scheduler service an appropriate name and ensure that the
radio button is checked. Do not select the
Use the Client Acceptor daemon (CAD)... checkbox. Click
The next screen prompts for a path to the
dsm.opt options file. This should point to the file
in the installation directory of the software - by default
c:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\dsm.opt. Ensure that this is so and click
In the following window, check the entry for
Node name carefully and ensure that it matches the full Nodename under which
the machine was registered for HFS TSM backup. Typically this will be of the format MACHINE.DEPT or USERNAME-FREETEXT-DEPT.
If you are unsure of this, but can connect and run backups manually using the TSM Backup Client, then just use the
NODENAME entry from the
dsm.opt options file here. Do not forget to enter
the TSM password in the second field before proceeding.
Ideally, the services should run under the System account. If the scheduler service is to run under any other account, before proceeding please read our page on how to back up in Windows as a non-administrative user. Without the necessary rights, the TSM scheduler will be unable to back up all the files and objects on the local system. The System account has all the necessary rights to back up the entire local filestore, and TSM advises that the service be installed under this account. You should select the option Automatically when Windows boots so that the service starts automatically.
Next button displays the following screen, which prompts for the location of the schedule and error logs - by default
dsmerror.log in the installation directory. We recommend accepting these defaults.
The next screen offers the possibility of starting the service directly after completion of the setup wizard. This is recommended.
Next and then you will be asked also to click on
Apply, as shown below.
There will then be a pause while TSM puts your settings into effect:
Now the completion screen should be displayed. Click the
Finish button. You have
now finished setting up the TSM scheduler service and it should now start if the immediate start option
was chosen. This can be checked as described in our page on
starting and checking the TSM scheduler in Windows.
