Here is my dsm.sys file,
SErvername server_a
COMMMethod TCPip
TCPPort 1500
TCPServeraddress 192.131.87.80

Nodename hubqux01
PasswordAccess generate
Password perot
SCHEDLOGNAME /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmsched.log
ERRORLOGNAME /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmerror.log


Please help.

Thanks in advise.

Re: TSM issue

Hi

Tivoli Storage Manager is kinda funky and should be supported by IBM.

Word of advice, I've corrected many TSM problems that were permissions or ownership caused. For example, TSM has its own login and get denied access when it tries to execute a script owned, for example, by the DBA. Group permissions now have to be modified to include the TSM account in with the DBA account to get TSM execute access.

Since TSM is a job scheduler, you can verify much by first executing via cron, the UNIX job scheduler. If it works in cron then you know it will work in TSM, but if it doesn't, then its a ownership or permission issue.

As for your current problem, it could also very well be an ownership / permission problem.

Re: TSM issue

Hi Anil,

I too of the same opinion, its an ownership issue. I think you may need to create ACL and assign the dba user permission to write it to the log folder.

Re: TSM issue

Test backups are running fine. Only issue is it's not logging into dsmsched.log and dsmerror.log. Here is directory permission,

# ls -ld /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin
drwxrw-rw- 4 root bin 8192 Mar 23 03:14 /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin

Re: TSM issue

root bin

Owner of log = root.

Group of log = bin.

This is not standard config for any TSM log that I know of.

What is the name of the TSM account? / Group?

What did IBM say?

Re: TSM issue

Anil,

Change the ownership of the folder to
oracle:dba (ORACLE_HOME user) and check

Re: TSM issue

I have modified the permission to root:sys, still no luck.

Sundar, Im running the normal backup using root. I don't understand why do we need to modify permission to oracle:dba.

Re: TSM issue

I have the config SHEDLOGNAME in lowercase:

errorlogretention 7
schedlogretention 7
schedlogname /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmsched.log
errorlogname /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmerror.log
Windows?, no thanks

Geez, Don't you get it? This is basic Unix 101.

root:sys is NOT permissions, its ownership.

You keep getting told but you don't get it. Change the ownership.
