Enterprise Management Enhancements

Included in Base Product

Enterprise Administrator Console: Java-enabled Web browser interface that simplifies management by giving the administrator a global view of the Tivoli ADSM deployment.

Web Backup-Archive Client: Java-enabled Web browser interface that allows administrators, end users, or other authorized people to perform backup and restore, and archive and retrieve functions on a remote workstation or LAN server. The Web backup-archive client support is available for the following ADSM Version 3 clients: AIX, Novell NetWare, Sun Solaris, Hewlett-Packard HP-UX, Digital UNIX, OS/2, Silicon Graphics IRIX UNIX, and Windows 32-bit Intel (Windows NT, Windows 95, and Windows 98).

Enterprise Reporting: Enterprise reporting provides the ability for the administrator to obtain information about the Tivoli ADSM enterprise as a whole. To simplify reporting needs, Tivoli ADSM provides a number of predefined server scripts (described below) that can be automatically loaded into the server database during installation. Tivoli ADSM-supplied server scripts include:

  • List nodes that have not accessed Tivoli ADSM for a specified number of days
  • Display nodes that have backup data exceeding a specified number of MB
  • Display percentage of search volumes in a specified library

With the enterprise administrator console Web interface, an administrator can create additional reporting scripts or views, and execute and modify existing ones.

Automation Enhancements: Enhanced automation functions are being added to eliminate or reduce staff-intensive manual procedures.

  • Server Scripts

    Automation of server management operations is provided through new server scripts that store a sequence of server commands in the database as a script with an assigned name. The script can be run by the administrator from the command line and from the Tivoli ADSM enterprise console interface, or it can be scheduled for execution using the administrative command scheduler in the server. Server scripts can include Tivoli ADSM server commands, SQL statements, conditional logic (including return code checking), and variable substitution. This means that variables can be substituted for strings in the script commands to allow for flexibility and more robust function.

  • Enhanced Policy

    Additional policy constructs have been added to allow the automatic extension of the server database and/or recovery log when administrator-defined thresholds are reached. In addition, the ADSM messages that are issued when designated space thresholds are reached for the server database and/or recovery log, can trigger automation by VM and MVS automation tools or external utilities to format and add the volume to the server.

Included in Optional Priced Feature

Enterprise Administration: The new optional Enterprise Administration priced feature includes a set of enhancements that enables administrators to centrally manage multiple Tivoli ADSM servers with a single Tivoli ADSM enterprise administration console interface. The Tivoli ADSM enterprise administration console is a Web browser that serves as the integration point for all Tivoli ADSM functions. When the Enterprise Administration feature is licensed, the enterprise console provides the administrator with several global views of the Tivoli ADSM deployment and provides an interface for the following functions:

  • Enterprise Configuration and Policy Management

    This function allows Tivoli ADSM configuration and policy information to be defined one time at a Tivoli ADSM configuration server and then propagated to any number of managed Tivoli ADSM servers. A new server option is used to define a Tivoli ADSM server as a configuration server. You have the flexibility to select an existing Tivoli ADSM server or implement an additional server as a dedicated configuration server.

    Tivoli ADSM servers that obtain information from a configuration server are known as managed Tivoli ADSM servers. Policy and configuration information that can be centrally defined includes: client option sets, backup, archive, and HSM policies, client and administration schedules, server scripts, and administration definitions. Policy and configuration information is grouped into one or more named configuration profiles to which managed servers subscribe. Configuration profiles enable you to decide which sets of information are administered centrally, and which are defined locally.

  • Enterprise Command Routing

    The enterprise command routing function lets a Tivoli ADSM administrator use a single command to perform such tasks as queries on groups of networked Tivoli ADSM servers as well as a single server. Results from the routed commands are returned to the origin of the request. A message is also returned indicating whether the commands were successful, or whether some or all of them failed. Command routing in Tivoli ADSM provides a simple mechanism for querying and updating multiple servers simultaneously. This can greatly simplify reporting across a large Tivoli ADSM enterprise.

  • Enterprise Logging

    The enterprise logging function extends the capabilities provided in Centralized Event Logging and enables more proactive management of, and better enterprise reporting on, a dynamic environment by consolidating events from groups of Tivoli ADSM servers and clients. The Tivoli ADSM servers in an organization can forward their events and those of their clients to a single server designated to be the event server. This server then displays the events on the Tivoli ADSM enterprise console and stores them in the activity log. The events can also be routed to external managers such as NetView® (for ADSM for MVS) and the Tivoli Management products as described below under the Centralized Event Logging description.

Other Enhancements Included in Base Product

Control Management

As systems grow, and more Tivoli ADSM servers are deployed to support data availability requirements, it becomes critical to administer and operate these systems in a network-centric manner.

Centralized Event Logging: Centralized logging of operational information allows Tivoli ADSM client and server events to be made available from a central point. These events can be sent to a variety of receivers including the ADSM database, a flat file, a user-written exit, the Tivoli Enterprise Console, and as specially formatted messages for use by NetView for OS/390. The granularity of logging can be customized for selected clients. The SQL interface and the ADSM Query commands can be used to view events stored in the ADSM database.

Client Options Stored at Server: Tivoli ADSM allows most client options to be stored at the server, providing additional administrator control for setting options and relieving clients of this operational requirement. To avoid replication, client options can be grouped into sets that can be shared between multiple clients.

Tivoli ADSM Server-to-Server Virtual Volumes: For enterprises deploying multiple Tivoli ADSM servers, the optional Server-to-Server Virtual Volumes feature (for MVS, formerly called Server-to-Server Communication) allows Tivoli ADSM to pass data between servers, whether across the room or across the country. This function allows movement of information between storage pools on multiple Tivoli ADSM servers. The ability to define a storage hierarchy across multiple servers may help reduce overall storage costs by sharing key system resources such as robotic tape libraries and drives. The Server-to-Server Virtual Volumes function is also ideal for electronic vaulting of database and storage pool backups to a secondary site for disaster recovery. The optional Disaster Recovery Manager feature, available for ADSM for MVS, Version 3.1, now supports automated disaster recovery using the Server-to-Server Virtual Volumes function.

SQL Interface: Tivoli ADSM supports SQL queries on the Tivoli ADSM administrative command line interface and Web browser interfaces. It provides an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) interface on selected platforms to access and report on Tivoli ADSM database and real-time Tivoli ADSM server information. ODBC is supported by off-the-shelf spreadsheets, databases, and other tools such as Microsoft™ Excel, Microsoft Access, Lotus® 1-2-3®, and Lotus Approach®. You can build queries that satisfy your business requirements, import data into the tools of your choice, and format to suit your specific needs. The ODBC interface is packaged with the Windows 32-bit (Intel) client.

Performance

Due to the increase in around-the-clock operations, and the high growth in the amount of data, backup and restore throughput has become a vital concern. In addition, it is necessary to deal with the increasing performance requirements resulting from the growing number and size of files and filesystems. Tivoli ADSM is addressing this growth by implementing new data transfer mechanisms and storage models for substantial performance improvements over the existing ADSM product.

Small File Aggregation: To help improve backup and archive performance for small files, Tivoli ADSM will group multiple small files together as a single object on the server. This grouping results in fewer data pointers and less database and storage pool entries. This enhancement also helps improve database expiration performance, as well as performance for storage pool backup and migration, since there are fewer objects to move and manage. This enhanced function is transparent to the end user, and does not prevent individual retrieval of files that have been aggregated.

Restore Directory Trees: A new algorithm has been added for the restore function that enhances the restore operation and consumes less client memory resources.

Fault-Tolerant Clients: New fault-tolerant features provide intelligent resumption of interrupted file system restores. Users are informed when retries are occurring. If desired, users are able to stop the retries.

Usability Enhancements

An improved user interface is designed to make users and administrators feel more at ease in an increasingly complex environment. The new Tivoli ADSM interface masks complexity, and enables faster navigation and movement through the screens.

Redesigned Initial Panels: The initial client GUI panel provides an easy, intuitive way of selecting the primary functions of Tivoli ADSM.

Redesigned Primary Windows: The main backup, archive, restore, and retrieve panels have been redesigned so you have more flexibility in making choices such as setting options and selecting files and drives.

Enhanced Directory Selection Techniques: New selection techniques have been added to allow an entire directory tree to be easily selected, so that an operation can be performed on all of the directory contents.

Collapsible Directory Trees: To eliminate excessive scrolling through a directory, collapsible directory trees are supported.

New Progress Indicators: Progress indicators provide up-to-date status, including projected function execution time, file scanning progress, and server connection.

Point-in-Time Restore: Point-in-time restore allows a file system to be restored to a previous point in time. During a point-in-time restore, the latest backup file copy created prior to or equal to the specified point in time is restored. Backup file copies for a file deleted prior to the point-in-time restore date are not restored.

Single Drive Libraries: Tivoli ADSM automates tape reclamation of single-drive libraries.

Web Browser Interface: Tivoli ADSM provides a Web browser interface that allows any platform with a supported Web browser to serve as a Tivoli ADSM administrative interface.

Incremental Backups: Tivoli ADSM now allows you to select a set of files and directories to be backed up incrementally, in addition to the incremental backup of an entire file system.

Client Passwordaccess=Generate: The Passwordaccess=Generate option is now available for all backup-archive and API clients. An encrypted password is stored on each workstation for use during session initiation. If the password expires, a new password will be automatically generated (hence the name).

Other Server Enhancements

  • Changes to the server options can be made online via administrative commands. In most cases, this will not require a restart of the Tivoli ADSM server to activate the changes.
  • The performance of many server operations is improved with enhancements to database read-ahead (pre-fetch rows), path length reduction, and database index organization for expiration processing.
  • The Disaster Recovery Manager (DRM) optional feature, available for ADSM for MVS, Version 3.1, has been enhanced to automate the tracking, viewing, and retrieval of the DRP file created by the DRM Prepare function. The DRP file can now be sent automatically to another server for safekeeping. The contents of the DRPs are viewable through new commands and can easily and quickly be restored to a server in the event of a disaster.
  • Storage pool migration has been enhanced to support Migration by Age. System administrators may now specify, through new storage pool parameters, the minimum number of days that data is to remain in a storage pool before it is migrated. This allows another level of control, in addition to migration by threshold, for the movement of data within a Tivoli ADSM storage hierarchy.

Other Client Enhancements

  • An administrative GUI on the Windows 32-bit (Intel) client, running with ADSM for MVS, supports the Tivoli ADSM functions.
  • The Options file, that contains configuration and initial state of the Tivoli ADSM clients, can be changed from within the client GUI.
  • The number of files and the amount of data selected for restore will be presented to the user prior to the start of the restore operation.
  • When files are restored to an alternate location, directory structure is preserved.
  • Empty directories may be backed up when needed.
  • In addition to HSM (Space Management) support for the AIX client, HSM support is added for the Sun Solaris 2.5.1 and 2.6 client (for Veritas File System only), and the Silicon Graphics IRIX client (for MVS only; for XFS file system only), using the Systems Management: Data Storage Management API (XDSM API) standard, established by the Open Group (X/Open OSF).
  • DRM Stand-alone Disk Image Dump and Restore, available for ADSM for MVS, Version 3.1, provides system recovery from hard drive failure for most Intel-based workstations. Stand-alone Disk Image Dump and Restore is a new capability of the optional, priced DRM feature. Disk images are stored as objects in a Tivoli ADSM V3.1 server by using diskettes which contain an embedded OS/2 V4 Warp Client operating system, TCP/IP communications, and Tivoli ADSM V3 client Application Program Interface (API). DRM Stand-alone Disk Image Dump and Restore is an operating system independent hard drive recovery solution for a wide variety of personal computers that are capable of using OS/2 V4 Warp Client as an embedded operating system. OS/2 does not have to be installed on the personal computer being dumped or restored.
  • The HP-UX and Sun Solaris clients support backup and archive functions for Veritas File Systems.
  • The ADSM Version 3.1 client for AIX Version 4.2.1 and higher now provides backup and archive functions for supported releases of General Parallel File System (GPFS), currently Release 1.1 and Release 1.2. Support for GPFS Release 1.1 will be provided until June 30, 2000.

Planning Information

Conversion: The enterprise management enhancements made minor format changes to the ADSM Version 3.1 server database and recovery log. After upgrading from Version 2.1 to Version 3.1, the user can no longer run ADSM Version 2.1 server code with the new table formats. As a normal precaution, it is recommended that a full database backup be performed before installing the Version 3.1 code, as well as after completing the installation. Refer to the README files for more detailed information.

The ADSM database is not automatically upgraded during the installation of the Tivoli ADSM V3.1 server. The ADSM administrator will be informed of the procedure to upgrade a Version 2 database during the install process. The ADSM administrator must explicitly initiate the database upgrade. After this database upgrade, the user can no longer run the ADSM V2.1 servers with the database.

As part of a migration plan from ADSM V2 to Tivoli ADSM V3, ADSM clients and servers may be upgraded at different times. To ensure that you can continue your backup and archive activities during the migration, Tivoli ADSM V3 allows the following:

  • An ADSM V2 client can perform backup, restore, archive, and retrieve functions to a Tivoli ADSM V3 server.
  • A Tivoli ADSM V3 client can perform backup, restore, archive, and retrieve functions to an ADSM V2 server.
  • Data that has been backed up from a Tivoli ADSM V3 client to any ADSM server cannot be restored to an ADSM V2 client.
  • The Tivoli ADSM for MVS, V3 administrative graphical user interface on the Windows NT client can perform administrative functions for an ADSM V2 server, but invoking Tivoli ADSM for MVS, V3 functions causes an error message.
  • All command line administrative clients can administer ADSM V2 and V3 servers.
  • Data that has been migrated from a Tivoli ADSM V3 HSM client cannot be recalled to an ADSM V2 HSM client.
  • The following client platforms and operating systems supported in V2 were not migrated to V3.1 and are not supported in V3.1:
    • DOS
    • OS/2 V2.0/2.1/2.11
    • SunOS 4.1.3/4.1.4
    • AIX 3.2
    • HSM on AIX 4.1
    • Windows 3.1
    • Macintosh 6.07
    • HP-UX 10.01

Note: ADSM for MVS, Version 3.1 (5655-A30) was originally announced in Software Announcement 297-414 , dated October 7, 1997. The ordering information for this product is being included here for informational purposes only.

To order a basic license, specify the program number and feature number 9001 for asset registration. Specify feature number 0001 for a monthly license charge (MLC) for Tivoli ADSM for VM/ESA or specify feature number 2000 for a monthly license charge (MLC) for Tivoli ADSM for MVS. Also, specify the feature number for the desired distribution media. In addition, refer to Optional Machine-Readable Material if client interface for OS/390 UNIX or OS/400® API is required.

Tivoli ADSM for VM/ESA, Version 3.1 is also packaged on the VM/ESA Version 2 Release 4 system DASD Dump Restore (DDR) as an optionally installable, priced product. If you only plan to run ADSM for VM/ESA, V3.1 on VM/ESA V2R4, the ADSM product number 5697-VM3 can be added to your VM/ESA V2R4 order to establish a Tivoli ADSM for VM/ESA license. Be sure to specify feature number 3471 under 5697-VM3, along with other desired ADSM features, to suppress initial shipment of the ADSM media. For additional information, refer to the VM/ESA V2R4 Software Announcement 299-129 , dated May 24, 1999.

The Tivoli ADSM base server product includes support for the Tivoli ADSM server, all device support, and authorization to attach one OS/2 user. It is necessary to order User Registration features equal to the number of additional users desired to attach to the base server.

A user is a non-administrative client attached to the ADSM server. It can be a backup-archive client, an API client, an OS/390 UNIX client, or a Space Management (HSM) client.

An administrative client is used to administer and monitor the ADSM server through ADSM administrator commands. There is no charge for the administrative client.

Optional Features

The Disaster Recovery Manager feature, available for ADSM for MVS, Version 3.1, enables support for enterprise-wide disaster recovery management. A license is required for each MVS server where the DRM server function resides.

The Open Systems feature enables support for the OS/390 UNIX System Services client and AFS/Distributed File Service (DFS) on the AIX client. A license is required for each VM or MVS server where the Open Systems server function resides.

The Server-to-Server Virtual Volumes feature (for MVS, formerly called Server-to-Server Communication) enables support for objects to be sent to or received from one server to another directly. A license is required for each VM or MVS server participating in a server-to-server environment.

The Space Management feature enables the server to support HSM on AIX, Solaris, or Silicon Graphics (MVS only) workstations. A license is required for each VM or MVS server managing Space Management clients.

The Enterprise Administration feature enables centralized management of multiple Tivoli ADSM servers. A license is required for each VM or MVS server from which the enterprise is being administered (where the server function resides).

An AIX, Solaris, or Silicon Graphics (for MVS only) client, running with the Space Management feature, requires a user registration unless the workstation on which it is running already has a client which has obtained a registration. In other words, the HSM client can share a user registration with an AIX, Solaris, or Silicon Graphics backup-archive client.

The Lotus Notes backup agent running on an OS/2 workstation requires one user registration. If that workstation is also running an OS/2 backup-archive client, then an additional user registration would be required.
