You cannot use the vendoropt configuration parameter to specify vendor-specific options for snapshot backup or restore operations. You must use the OPTIONS parameter of the backup or restore utilities instead.
In TSM environments configured to support proxy nodes, the "-fromnode=nodename" option and the "-fromowner=ownername" option are not compatible with the "-asnodename=nodename" option and cannot be used together. Use the -asnodename option for TSM configurations using proxy nodes and the other two options for other types of TSM configurations.
