activate DRM on TSM 5.5

ok.. here's the firt question of TSM..

We have TSM on a cluster (PowerHA+GLVM) working properly, but we want to enable DRM.
 Here's TSM version:
(tsm1):[root] / -> lslpp -l |grep tivoli
  tivoli.tsm.client.api.32bit
  tivoli.tsm.client.api.64bit
  tivoli.tsm.client.ba.32bit.base
  tivoli.tsm.client.ba.32bit.common
  tivoli.tsm.client.ba.32bit.image
  tivoli.tsm.client.ba.32bit.nas
  tivoli.tsm.client.ba.32bit.web
  tivoli.tsm.client.sysback.license.cert
  tivoli.tsm.client.sysback.license.rte
  tivoli.tsm.client.sysback.rte
  tivoli.tsm.devices.acsls   5.5.4.3  COMMITTED  IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
  tivoli.tsm.devices.aix5.rte
  tivoli.tsm.license.aix5.rte64
  tivoli.tsm.license.cert    5.5.0.0  COMMITTED  IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
  tivoli.tsm.msg.en_US.devices
  tivoli.tsm.msg.en_US.server
  tivoli.tsm.server.aix5.rte64
  tivoli.tsm.server.com      5.5.4.3  COMMITTED  IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
  tivoli.tsm.server.webcon   5.5.4.3  COMMITTED  IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Web
  tivoli.tsm.devices.acsls   5.5.4.3  COMMITTED  IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
  tivoli.tsm.devices.aix5.rte
  tivoli.tsm.server.aix5.rte64
  tivoli.tsm.server.com      5.5.4.3  COMMITTED  IBM Tivoli Storage Manager

we have 4 drives:
tsm: BIBM_TSM>q dri

Library Name     Drive Name       Device Type     On-Line
------------     ------------     -----------     -------------------
SKYNET           SKYNET_DRV1      LTO             Yes
SKYNET           SKYNET_DRV2      LTO             Yes
SKYNET           SKYNET_DRV3      LTO             Yes
SKYNET           SKYNET_DRV4      LTO             Yes

I have found this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5vH-nL2KCc explaining DRM details.

Is it enough to enable DRM on our TSM? Is there any other step/step tutorial to do it?

Yes, that's indeed what you have to do.

Your video is based on this slideshow (which I would have recommended, but you were faster):
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ieduasst/tivv1r0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.iea.tsm/tsm/6.2/configuration/drm_basics/player.html

Here is a nice Field Guide (GUI based, unfortunately):
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27006949&aid=1

Here is the 5.5 Infocenter:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v1r1/index.jsp

and its DRM chapter (24):
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v1r1/topic/com.ibm.itsmaixn.doc/anragd55760.htm?path=2_1_7_1#udrm

The useful checklist:

Btw. you could put your TSM questions additionally into "Backup & Restore Software" instead of "Unix" alone. Maybe there are some more fine experts watching that zone ... :-)

Perfect. wmp.

Do you recommend me to upgrade from 5,5 to 6.3 and then activate DRM or not?

DRM works exactly the same way in both releases.

Your definitions (and of course your data/media) will survive any migration, so there's no reason to observe a certain implementation sequence. Just follow your schedule.
