The owner name is needed to allow you to restore a database that was backed up to TSM from another node. It is possible for the tsm_owner to be overridden during a backup done through Db2 (for example, with the BACKUP DATABASE command).

Note: The owner name is case sensitive.

The default is that you can only restore a database from TSM on the same node from which you did the backup.
