Starting a TSM Command Line Session

To start a command line session, do the following:

• On the command line, change directory to the TSM directory:

o Batch mode--for a single client command, enter:

> dsmc command

o Interactive mode--for more than one client command, enter:

> dsmc or dsmc loop

tsm> command

:

tsm> quit

Performing a Command Line Backup

• To run an incremental backup of the /home file system:

• dsmc incremental /home

• To run an incremental backup by date of the /home/jones directory, enter:

• dsmc incremental -incrbydate /home/jones

• To run a selective backup of the proja file in the /home/jones directory, enter:

• dsmc selective /home/jones/proja

• To run an image backup of the /home/jones directory, enter:

• dsmc backup image /home/jones

Restoring Backup Versions

To run a command line restore:

• To restore the /home/jones/proja file to its original directory, enter:

• dsmc restore /home/jones/proja

• To restore a backup set from the /dev/rmt0 tape device, enter:

• dsmc restore backupset /dev/rmt0 -location=tape

Note: You can use wildcard characters to restore groups of files, or entire directories.

Performing a Command Line Archive

Use the archive command to archive a single file, a group of files, or all files in a directory and its subdirectories. If you want to archive all the files in a directory and its subdirectories, use the subdir=yes option. Use the deletefiles option if you want TSM to delete the files from your local workstation after they are archived and committed to storage.

For example, to archive the files in the /home/jones/proj directory and its subdirectories, enter:

dsmc archive /home/jones/proj/ -subdir=yes -deletefiles

You can use more than one file specification with the archive command. For example, to archive the /home/jones/h1.doc and /home/jones/test.doc files, enter:

dsmc archive /home/jones/h1.doc /home/jones/test.doc

Use the description option to assign a description to the archive, as follows:

dsmc archive /home/jones/h1.doc -description="Chapter 1, first version"

Retrieving Archives

You can use the retrieve command to retrieve files or directories. Enter the file name you want to retrieve and its destination. If you do not indicate a destination, the files are retrieved to their original location. For example, to retrieve the /home/jones/h1.doc file to its original directory; enter:

dsmc retrieve /home/jones/h1.doc

To retrieve this file under a new name, enter:

dsmc retrieve /home/jones/h1.doc /home/jones/h2.doc

Displaying Command Line Help

To display command line help, enter the following command:

dsmc help

Using the Web Client

You can use the Web client to perform backup, archive, restore, and retrieve operations from any machine, or platform that supports a Java 1.1.6-capable browser, such as Netscape Navigator 4.06 or higher, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 or higher. Using the Web client, you can back up and restore your own data, or a TSM administrator can centralize the backup or restore operations of many TSM clients. To use it, simply point your Web browser at any TSM client machine that is running the Web client. The Web client is only supported on a server that is Version 3 or higher.

All backup and restore procedures in this chapter are also supported on the Web client. The following functions are not supported by the Web client:

• Estimate

• View Policy Information

• Access Another User

• Searching and Filtering

• User Access List

• Setup Wizard

• Querying and Restoring Backup Sets

To use the Web client, perform the following steps

1. If you do not already have password files generated for TSM clients, specify passwordaccess generate in the dsm.sys options file.

2. To create the TSM password file, start the native backup-archive client by entering:

3. dsmc query session

and, when prompted, enter your user ID and password.

4. Quit from the native TSM backup-archive client.

5. Start the TSM Client Acceptor daemon by entering the dsmcad command. The TSM Web client agent service automatically starts when needed.

The only options you can use with the dsmcad command are optfile, httpport, and httpsport.

All the Web client messages are written to the Web client log file, dsmwebcl.log. Error messages are also written to the TSM error log file. The dsmwebcl.log file and the TSM error log file are located in the same directory specified by the errorlogname option.

6. To use a Web client with an enterprise management server, ensure that you were assigned an administrative user id with system privilege, policy privilege, client access, or clientowner authority. If your server does not support enterprise management, then use your node name and password when prompted by the Web client. To determine whether your server supports enterprise management, contact your server administrator.

Note: Use the revokeremoteaccess option to restrict an administrator with client access privilege from accessing your workstation through the Web client. Administrators with clientowner privilege, system privilege, or policy privilege can access the Web client.

7. You can access the TSM Web client using any browser that is Java1.1.6-capable by entering the following URL:

8. http://your_machine_name:1581

where your_machine_name is the hostname of the machine running the TSM Web client.

Port 1581 is the default port number. The administrator can set a different port number using the httpport option.

The Web client workstation can also be accessed through the TSM system administrative GUI.

If you want to use the Web client with secure socket layer (SSL) communications, which is only supported on the AIX clients, see the Appendix in Tivoli Storage Manager Installing the Clients, order number SH26-4119, for more information.
