HSM Windows cluster configuration

Technote (troubleshooting)


This document provides additional information on how to configure the reconciliation and/or threshold migration processes in a Microsoft cluster environment.

Resolving the problem

Follow the instructions for Installing and configuring the HSM for Windows client in a cluster environment.
It is only necessary to configure the reconciliation or threshold migration on one of the cluster nodes for the cluster service to be created. You can use the dsmhsmclc command to verify the configuration.


C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\hsmclient>dsmhsmclc.exe check
Command Line HSM Reconcile and Threshold Migration Interface - Version 6, Release 3, Level 0.0
(c) Copyright by IBM Corporation and other(s) 2005, 2011. All Rights Reserved
HSM Service is running: YES
Monitor Service is running: YES
Tasks Service is running: YES
DLL copied: YES
DLL registered: YES
HSMResTypDLL.dll version: 6.100 (client dir version: 6.100)
Configuration check for volume 'I:\': success
Highest return code was 0

In this example, the I: drive is the cluster drive managed by HSM Windows.
Once configured, the Failover Cluster Manager GUI will show the HSM Monitor resource. For example :

The same information can be obtained with the windows "cluster res" command. For example :

C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\hsmclient\logs>cluster res
Listing status for all available resources:

Resource Group Node Status
-------------------- -------------------- --------------- ------
Cluster Disk 2 Cluster disk I: NodeA Online
HSM Monitor config for I:\ Cluster disk I: NodeA Online
TSM Client Acceptor - Cluster I Cluster disk I: NodeA Online
