check if the tsm backup was successful (from client perspective)

iKnow-IT banner

check if the tsm client schedular was running:

# ps -ef | grep dsmc

root <pid> <ppid> <c><stime> <tty> <time> /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmc  sched

check where the schedule log and error log files are

# cat dsm.sys   (this file is often located in /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin)

...

SErvername  <servername>
  ...
  ERRORLogname  <logdir>/dsmerror.log
  SCHEDLogname  <logdir>/dsmsched.log
  ...

check both files 

# cat <logdir>/dsmerror.log
# cat <logdir>/dsmsched.log

Finaly you can check which filesystem was last backup-ed

# dsmc q fi
