TSM backint troubleshooting

0 Kudos


We are using Legato backint and we may migrate to TSM backint.

On a Sap server I have installed the TSM backint.

The OS is backed up by TSM and it works.

Therefore the TSM client should be configured correctly.

I have installed and configured the TSM backint.

When I do a test backup it says:


BR0278I Command output of '/usr/sap/BAS/SYS/exe/run/backint -u BAS -f backup -i

/oracle/BAS/sapbackup/.beflletv.lst -t file -p /oracle/BAS/102_64/dbs/initBAS.ut

l -c':

BKI5014E: Tivoli Storage Manager Error:

ANS1087E (RC106) Access to the specified file or directory is denied

BKI0020I: End of program at: Wed Mar 16 17:34:37 2011 .


1. I would like to know which file can not be accessed. Would you know how I could troubleshoot this?

2. The TSM installer has added a process in my inittab:/opt/tivoli/tsm/tdp_r3/ora64/prole -p tdpr3ora64

From what I understand in the doc, this process is used only when we use the TSM Administrator Server.

Therefore I can kill it as it is not used for backing or restoring?

Am I correct?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I have searched on IBM site and it turned out that it was due to dms error log not writable as documented in:

just search the file "dsmerror.log" in somewhere inside "/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/" directory.

check if it is writable for all users or not (assign it 666 permission).

You can confirm the log file name and location from "dsm.opt" file.

The parameter would be "errorlogname=/location/filename.log"
