Spectrum Protect Key Log and Configuration Files

Location Logs
/opt/teradata/client/16.20/dsa/AXMSpectrum
  • dsmerror.log – key error log
  • dsminstr.log – key instrumentation log
  • devconfig.txt – Storage Server connection information used to start the server
/opt/tivoli/tsm/StorageAgent/bin/
  • dsmerror.log – Key log file for Storage agent errors
  • dsmsta.opt – Key config file for Storage Agent.
    • TCPPort (Shared Memory) – Found you may need this setting to force shared memory access for LANFree to the Node from the Storage Agent. Use a port other than the default 1500 that typically used between the Node and the IBM Server; for example, TCPPort 3700
    • IDLETIMEOUT – Increase timeout if long restores are not getting resources allocated as expected. Recommended: IDLETIMEOUT 600
  • dsmsta.rc – Start and stop the storage agent on a client; for example, ./dsmsta.rc stop/start/restart
    A dsmserv.v6lock file is found in this directory whenever the storage agent is running.
  • ./dsmsta – Start the storage agent in the foreground, gives a prompt. Use HALT to exit from storage agent and stop the service. This is a good way to watch and catch errors.
/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64/bin and /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/
  • dsmerror.log – Key error log
  • dsm.opt – Client options file used at startup
  • dsm.sys – Client connection file used at startup
