The password is needed to allow you to restore a database that was backed up to TSM from another node.

Note: If the tsm_nodename is overridden during a backup done with Db2 (for example, with the BACKUP DATABASE command), the tsm_password might also have to be set.

The default is that you can only restore a database from TSM on the same node from which you did the backup. It is possible for the tsm_nodename to be overridden during a backup done with Db2.
