  25. 25. 1.1 Overview IBM Tivoli Storage Manager protects data from hardware failures, errors, and unforeseen disasters by storing backup and archive copies on offline and off-site storage. Scaling to protect hundreds to thousands of computers running more than a dozen operating systems, ranging from mobile computers to mainframes and connected together by the Internet, WANs, LANs, or SANs, Storage Manager Extended Editions centralized Web-based management, intelligent data move and store techniques, and comprehensive policy-based automation all work together to minimize administration costs and the impact to both computers and networks. Optional software modules allow business-critical applications that must run 24x365 to utilize Storage Managers centralized data protection with no interruption to their service. Optional software extensions also allow SAN-connected computers to use the SAN for data protection data movements, and provide Hierarchical Storage Management to automatically move unused data files from online disk storage to offline tape storage. Storage Manager Extended Edition expands on the data backup and restore and managed data archive and retrieve capabilities of the base Storage Manager by adding disaster planning capability, NDMP control for NAS filers, and support for large tape libraries. Figure 1-1shows the interrelation of the components in IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. A separate server is optional for the ISC but mandatory for the monitoring and reporting server Integrated Solution IP Network TSM Monitoring and Console with TSM Admin Reporting Center Log Database Storage Servers, Clients, Repository Application systems Storage Area Network ISC Server can be run on the same server as the TSM server TSM Clients TSM ServerTSM Stgpools TSM Monitoring & Reporting Figure 1-1 How the product components interrelate Note: We recommend installing the standard Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center and Tivoli Storage Manager Monitoring and Reporting on the same server to manage multiple mixed Tivoli Storage Manager Servers.4 Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 Technical Guide
  26. 26. With the initial shipment of the Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1, it was not supported to install additional products that deploy and use DB2® on the same system as the server was running. This restriction has now been partially lifted; check the following Technote for the current status: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21386858 Disaster preparation and recovery Local copies of data do not protect against a local disaster. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition facilitates the tracking of the additional copies of your active data that IBM Tivoli Storage Manager creates for safekeeping at an off-site location. This is known as the Disaster Recovery Manager. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition prepares and keeps up to date a text file, the recovery plan, which contains detailed recovery steps and automated scripts to recover your server. Should a disaster strike and destroy your storage and computers, this plan and the off-site data copies will get your business back up and running quickly.1.2 Product positioning IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and its complementary products provide a comprehensive solution focused on the key data protection activities of backup, archive, recovery, space management, and disaster recovery planning. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager helps ensure recoverability through the automated creation, tracking, and vaulting of reliable recovery points. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition provides the following support: Base IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (for basic backup-archive using a tape library with up to four drives and 48 slots) Disaster Recovery Manager NDMP (for selected network-attached storage devices) Large tape libraries (more than four drives or 48 slots) IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Space Management can be used with either IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition. Additional Tivoli products working in conjunction with Tivoli Storage Manager are described in “IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for products” on page 13. Chapter 1. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager overview 5
  27. 27. 1.3 Overview of the development timeline IBM Tivoli Storage Manager started life as ADSTAR Distributed Storage Manager (ADSM).

This configuration is supported as long as the older version is supported. Although Tivoli Storage Manager is very flexible as to the versions of client code used, and also functions with most of the old and unsupported client code versions according to their functionality, it is best to follow these rules for updating to Version 6.n. See the announcement letters for more specific examples related to particular versions.1.3.2 Migration guidelines To help prevent disruption to your backup and archive activities during the migration, follow these guidelines: NAS backups performed on a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 server using the servers BACKUP NODE command can only be restored using the servers RESTORE NODE command or a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 client. A Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5 client can perform backup, restore, archive, and retrieve functions to a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 server. A Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 client can perform backup, restore, archive, retrieve, and query functions to a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5 server.6 Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 Technical Guide
  28. 28. A Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5 Space Management client can perform migrate and recall functions to a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 server. A Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 Space Management client can perform migrate and recall functions to a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5 server. If you back up or archive data from a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.4 or Version 5.5 client to any Tivoli Storage Manager server, you can restore or retrieve that data using a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 client. This is also true when recalling data that was migrated with the Version 5.4 or Version 5.5 Space Management client. If you back up or archive data from a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 client, you cannot restore or retrieve that data using a Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5 or earlier client. All administrative clients can administer Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5 and Version 6.1 servers. The format of the Tivoli Storage Manager passwords stored in the Windows Registry has changed. If you install the Version 5.4.0 or later IBM Tivoli Storage Manager API client or Tivoli Data Protection, which is using the Tivoli Storage Manager API, and you attempt to use the Version 5.3 or earlier IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Backup-Archive client, you will be unable to start the Tivoli Storage Manager Backup-Archive Client Scheduler service or client acceptor daemon service. The method for processing system state data changed in Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5, such that system state (and system service) backup from prior clients is supported but is no longer recommended. When you use the Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5 client, you will generate new system state backups using the new methods. For operations that you cannot perform, check the following Web site. http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tsminfo/v6/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.it sm.client.doc/c_inst_mig_upg.html You can find information about upgrading to and from various versions of Tivoli Storage Manager server and client in the appropriate installation guides. Also, you can check the Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 information center for new installation instructions: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tsminfo/v6/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.itsm. nav.doc/t_installing.html Upgrade instructions can be found at the following Web site: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tsminfo/v6/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.itsm. nav.doc/t_upgrading.html1.4 Overview of new features This section summarizes the various new features and changes to different Tivoli Storage Manager components. Many of these are covered in greater detail in subsequent chapters of this book. We start with highlights for the most recent version, Version 6.1, then present more specific details for both server and client.1.4.1 Server enhancements, additions, and changes from Version 6.1 This section lists the functional enhancements, additions, and changes for the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Server introduced in Version 6.1.0. Chapter 1. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager overview 7
  29. 29. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Servers Version 6.1 New features and enhancements are available in the Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 server and related products. Here we summarize these features and enhancements in short, high-level descriptions, so that you can start thinking about the potential benefits to your storage-management operations. The changes introduced in Version 6.1.0 onwards are: Changes to the Version 6.1 Administration Center: Many features in the Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center Version 6.1 are new for previous users. Data deduplication: Data deduplication is a method of eliminating redundant data in sequential-access disk (FILE) primary, copy, and active-data storage pools. One unique instance of the data is retained on storage media, and redundant data is replaced with a pointer to the unique data copy. The goal of deduplication is to reduce the overall amount of time that is required to retrieve data by letting you store more data on disk, rather than on tape. Storage devices: New device support and other changes to storage devices are available in Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1. Disaster recovery manager support for active-data pools: To restore your client systems more quickly and efficiently, you can now use active-data pools in your recovery plans and procedures. EXPIRE INVENTORY command enhancements: The EXPIRE INVENTORY command is now enhanced with new functionality. No-query restore changes: The no-query restore (NQR) function and the internal algorithms responsible for NQR were changed to take advantage of DB2 capabilities and to improve performance. Server database: Tivoli Storage Manager version 6.1 provides a new server database. Advantages include automatic statistics collection and database reorganization, full-function SQL queries, and elimination of the need for offline audits of the database. Support for NetApp SnapMirror® to Tape feature: With Tivoli Storage Manager you can create SnapMirror to Tape images of file systems on NetApp file servers. ODBC driver support: Tivoli Storage Manager Version 6.1 uses the DB2 open database connectivity (ODBC) driver to query the database and display the results. Reporting and monitoring feature: The reporting and monitoring feature uses a combination of the Tivoli Common Reporting tool, IBM Tivoli Monitoring, and the IBM Tivoli Data Warehouse to offer you reports and real time monitoring information about Tivoli Storage Manager servers and client activity.1.4.2 Client enhancements, additions, and changes from Version 6.1 This chapter lists all the functional enhancements, additions, and changes for the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Backup Archive Client introduced as of Version 6.1.8 Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 Technical Guide
