Conclusion

Enhancements in version 5.4 of the Tivoli Storage Manager Backup-Archive client have helped remove the programming dependencies between the backup-archive client software and cluster software, such as AIX HACMP. These enhancements enable the backup-archive client to be deployed into cluster environments on UNIX and Linux, independent of the cluster software. If you are currently using the Tivoli Storage Manager Backup-Archive Client in an HACMP AIX cluster environment, update your configuration as described by this document.
