Hello experts,

I use the application ibm tsm for backup/restore.

I want to know if it is possible to backup two databases from the same server and associated  each database one different domain policy.

For example I want to associate databases AdventureWorks and  AdventureWorksDW to their own domain policy.

Hi,
yes i believe you can do it.
You need to create 2 different nodes on TSM server, i.e. "SQL_AdventureWorks" and "SQL_AdventureWorksDW" and associate those nodes to 2 different domains. You will have to create 2 independent set of files (dsm.opt, tdpsql.opt, dsmcad.opt) and consider those 2 nodes as if they were two different machines (TSM server will consider them two different nodes). On TSM server you will choose the policy and retention you like for each domain.
Then, on client side, you need to use different scripts to do the backups (for example, tdpsqlc backup db1 ... for one node, and tdpsqlc backup db2 ... for the other one).
The only thing you can't have, is the TDP GUI for both nodes, because it will show you only one client.

hope this helps

you should have a sample script into the default directory, anyway it should be something like:

%sql_dir%\tdpsqlc backup AdventureWorksDW full /tsmoptfile=%sql_dir%\dsm_DW.opt /SQLAUTH=SQL /SQLUSer=sa /SQLP=your_sa_password logfile=%sql_dir%\sqlfull_DW.log >> %sql_dir%\sqlcmd.log

where by indicating "dsm_DW.opt" you're telling TSM that it is the "added" node.
Of course you'll have already configured the dsm_DW.opt file.

You need to do proper testing of the script, which may vary with version, release, season, weather forecast, etc.
