2. Running Scheduled Backups
In order to run automatic scheduled backups unattended the TSM password, the Netware password to login to the NDS tree and the Netware password to login to the Server need to be stored encrypted locally on the disk. The procedure for ensuring this is detailed in the instructions for installing and running the HFS TSM Client for Netware. If you can run the queries detailed in that section without being prompted for a TSM or Netware password, then these passwords have been correctly stored in encrypted form to disk.
LOAD DSMC SCHED
These lines show a connection to a TSM server and a query for the next scheduled backup
window. If there are lines similar to "ANS1029E Communications have been dropped" then it is
likely that either the node name and/or the password have been incorrectly entered or the
password has expired. You will need to start the TSM client (LOAD DSMC) manually and enter the correct
password, or obtain a new password from IT Services Registration if yours has expired,
before restarting the TSM Scheduler. Further help on reasons
for the TSM Scheduler failing to start can be found by examining the
The TSM Scheduler will start at a time within its allotted schedule window overnight and
report the results in the schedule log
