other 4 question about TSM on AIX

ok,

here I go again (like whitesnake song :-))

I need this info on the client side (not from the server), is possible of course:
1- When was the last successful backup date?

2- A list of all files of the last backup (incremental or not, just the last backup). I've noted that some AIXs use dsmc sched and others use a ksh script to make the daily incremental backup.

3- All the files that are stored on the TSM server, let say: /etc/hosts. Not only the last one . I believe you can backup multiples versions regarding the class on the TSM. The "famous TSM-GUY" says TSM has some management clases, 7 days, 15 days, and so on.

4- The log file (from the client side) of the last backup.

Thanks!!

No, that's not true!

Here you go:

Issue "dsmc" on the client. You'll get a command prompt.

1) q files

You'll get a list of the filesystems (TSM: "filespaces") known to TSM, including the last Incremental date/time

2) This works only on a per-filesystem basis. Take the filespace you're interested in from the output of (1) above and issue

q backup /filespace/name/* -subdir=yes
e.g.
q backup /nim/* -subdir=yes

You'll get a list of backed up files, including date and time.

3) Similar as above, different parameter:

q backup /file/name -inact
e.g.
q backup /etc/hosts  -inact

The second-to-last column shows "A" (active version, most recent) or "I" (inactive version, an older version of a file)

Should you get more output than would fit on a single screen add "-scrollprompt=yes" to your command.

4) The location and name of the scheduler's logfile is configured in /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys as "SCHEDLOGNAME"
The general error log is configured as "ERRORLOGNAME" there. Both default to /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmsched.log and .../dsmerror.log.

There is no automatic logging to a file when the scheduler is not used.
So consult the respective script if (and if yes, where) it stores a log.

... 'cause I know what it means
to walk along the lonely street of dreams ...
