to bring up online a volume you need to do the command:

upd volume <volume_name> access=readwr

after that it should normally be online.

If it does not you need to query the actlog to see why it keeps on bringing it unavailable.

It might be that TSM doesn't see it any longer: you may want to do the command:
audit library

hope this helps
seems to be the right answer for that question. Sorry not to have any feedback from user though.
