Does IBM Tivoli Storage Manager require special options when loading TSAFS in a cluster ?
The usual way to load the Novell Netware "Target Service Agents for File Systems" module
(TSAFS.NLM) for use with Tivoli Storage Manager client would be with /nocluster.
This is necessary because the Tivoli Storage Manager client does not support
the full Netware cluster presentation of volumes
( \\NODE-1\CLUSTERVOLUME - \\VIRTUAL-SERVER\- )
but can identify the volume names by the first part
( \\NODE-1\CLUSTERVOLUME ).
In special cases the setting /Cluster=1 may be required, e.g. for tools which
require the Cluster-Volume to be displayed via the virtual server (virtual IP
address), as in the case of the Novell migration tools (SCMT or Migration-Toolkit).
To enable Tivoli Storage Manager to work without a problem despite this setting,
the volumes to be backed up are explicitly taken into account by the option /ShowClusterVolumeOnNode=1.
This will display volumes in the form
\\NODE-1\CLUSTERVOLUME - \\VIRTUAL-SERVER\CLUSTERVOLUME
To summarize, the Tivoli Storage Manager client on Novell NetWare supports the
following combination of options for loading the TSAFS module on a NetWare
1.) TSAFS.NLM /nocluster
2.) TSAFS.NLM /Cluster=1 /ShowClusterVolumesOnNode=1
