Configure a Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) archive or backup
Export to TSM (Tivoli Storage Manager) is not enabled by default. After you enable TSM, you can configure it for backups. Learn how to enable the service, and understand the configuration parameters that are used in the backup page.
Before you begin
- Define a dsm.sys or dsm.opt configuration file on your server.
- For Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) v7.1.8 or newer, you need a cert256.arm file. For more information, see Configuring the server to use the cert256.arm certificate.
Note: The dsm.sys or dsm.opt file and cert256.arm file must be located in the same directory.
Certificates are unique and cannot be reused on other Guardium servers.
