Error description

  • Options nodeinfo=TBD  and nodeinfo2=TBD are documented in Tivoli
    Storage Manager "Administrator's guide"  manuals
    
     Chapter 12. Managing client nodes
         Managing nodes
            Command-line backup-archive client automatic deployment
                           feature: overview
                Defining a schedule for an automatic deployment
    
     but without enough explanation about what they are being used
    for.
    The documentation needs to be updated to include more details on
    these options :
    
    nodeinfo=TBD and nodeinfo2=TBD are used to get and pass the
    nodename , tcpserveraddress and tcpport that need to be used by
    the client node when doing autodeploy functions.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:   6.2   , 6.3  , 6.4
    
    Initial Impact: Low
    
    Additional Keywords:

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All Tivoli Storage Manager server users      *
    *                 scheduling an automatic client deployment.   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: There is confusion about the post-      *
    *                      schedule command and the parameters     *
    *                      that are documented.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The DEFINE SCHEDULE command was updated to lessen the
    confusion. The command now appears in this form:
    
    define schedule domain_name schedule_name action=deploy
    objects="deployment_package_location destination_for_package"
    options="-fromnode=IBM_CLIENT_DEPLOY_WIN -postnschedulecmd=
    'relative_path\deployment.bat schedule=schedule_name
    autodeploy=noreboot nodeinfo=TBD' -subdir=yes -replace=all"
    startdate=4/20/2013 perunits=onetime
    
    where
    deployment_package_location is the path to the deployment
    package
    destination_for_package is the path to where you want to store
    the deployment package
    IBM_CLIENT_DEPLOY_WIN is the predefined name (for a Windows
    deployment) for the _fromnode option
    AUTODEPLOY can be YES, No, or NOREBOOT. The default is YES.
    nodeinfo=TBD must be entered exactly as shown
    
    For non-Windows operating systems, the following text was
    added:
    
    nodeinfo2=TBD must be entered exactly as shown
