Cannot start TSM Scheduler on AIX 6.1
Posted on 2009-05-05
Hello everyone. I'm in the middle of building a new AIX environment in parallel to our current AIX environment. I'm currently configurating the backups. I've already done this on several LPARs without issues, but I'm encountering a strange new problem on two of the LPARs. I have sysback (Tivoli Storage Manager for System Backup and Recovery) installed on these LPARs. The dsm.sys and dsm.opt files are correctly configured and I'm able to successfully take manual backups with sysback. The issue lies in the TSM Scheduler. I added the following line to /etc/inittab, yet when I do a telinit q (or reboot) the TSM Scheduler won't start.
dsmsched:2:respawn:/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmc sched -quiet >/dev/console 2>&1 #TSM Client Scheduler
This same exact line is in /etc/inittab on my other LPARs and the TSM Scheduler starts fine on those. But on 2 of my LPARs, it won't start. No errors received, either. Does anyone with TSM/AIX experience know what the problem could be?
AIX version 6.1
TSM BA client version 5.5
Sysback version 5.6
