  1. Hi Anil,
    I have seen many of the TSM tutorials that you have posted on Youtube. Very helpful. Thanks for them.

    1 question. I am using Operation Center to manage my TSM 7.1. 5 setup. Can you tell if there is a way to make Tape library and drive definition in the Operation Center GUI ? I have used the Command Builder utility to create that. However doing it from GUI would be an easier option.

    Also, can you point me to any tutorial, that mentions the differences between TSM Administator Center and Operation Center, and why is it advantages to use Operation Center for the latest versions of TSM.


    1. I know it is a late reply but just in case if you needed it still.

      Admin center is stopped from V6.3.4 and IBM introduced operation centre for next versions. You can 80% of the work through operations center which you generally do in command line. so it is better to learn OC for the future use.

  2. Hi Anil Sir,

    1. Hello!

      Could you please tell more about TSM carrier ? As I know, TSM is additional experience for UNIX/Linux positions.

  3. Hi Anil,

    In our organisation we are migrating the setup, so we need database of current environment to newly setup environment, the problem is we are transfering the tsmdb filesystem to new setup over the network..
    The issue is how we can transfer particular date files in database , for restore in new setup..

    Waiting for ur response..

    1. Am not sure if it works. Ideally you should transfer entire DB filesystem not just particular data files. You probably want to take DB2 admin support for this query. Thanks

  6. Hi Anil,

    wt is diff b/w migrating data and move data?


    1. Migration is the process of sending entire data from disk storagepool to tape storagepool within primary pools. With move data, you can move particular node data or group of nodes data from one storagepool to another storagepool.

    2. With "move data" you can move data only from one storage pool volume to other storage pool volumes. Don't confuse move data with "move NODEDATA". With migration you can move data from one storage pool to another storage pool within storage pool hierarchy.

    3. Hi Petro,

      What you said is right. Thanks for the correction.

    07 -AIX LPAR need to be backup different type of SAP system with in different retention period

    1. Hi,

      Since your SAP DB size is small, you can diskpools to take backups. Create 2 stgpools, one for archive-log backups and another for online/offline SAP DB backups. Check the below link and subsequent links for detailed instructions for protecting SAP landscape.
