How to use TSM Administration Centre for managing TSM servers ?

You can monitor or administer Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) servers in both command line mode and GUI modes. The Administration Center is a Web-based graphical user interface for centrally configuring and managing IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server V5.3 and later, and V6.1, V6.2, and V6.3. To administer a Tivoli Storage Manager server using the Administration Center, the Administration Center must be the same or later version than the servers that you want to administer. For example, you can use a V6.3 Administration Center to administer a V6.2 server, but you cannot use a V6.2 Administration Center to administer a V6.3 server.
