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.
Now enter the current TSM password. Note that this must be re-typed if you have manually updated the password
Utilities menu or from the IT Services Self-Registration pages,
as the TSM password for the
TSM scheduler service is stored separately in
the Windows registry.
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 for the entire local filestore to be backed up, 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.
Now the completion screen should be displayed. Click the
Finish button. You have now finished updating the TSM scheduler service and it
should now restart 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.
