Error description

  • The "configuring a server instance to use shared memory" in
    problem determination guide shows the following information;
    
    Configuring a server instance to use shared memory
    Configure a server instance to use shared memory to help resolve
    slow database backups that can occur because of Transmission
    Control Protocol (TCP) loopback problems.
    About this task
    In the following procedure, you must update the database backup
    node configuration for your server to enable shared memory.
    /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64/dsm.sys
    /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64/dsm.sys
    
    But according to "Configuring the system for database backup on
    AIX-, HP-UX, Linux, and Oracle Solaris systems", the dsm.sys
    should be under server_bin_directory/dbbkapi/.
    
    The information of dsm.sys location information in "configuring
    a server instance to use shared memory" in problem determination
    guide is not correct.
    

Local fix

  • The correct Tivoli Storage Manager API dsm.sys configuration
    file of V7.1 is in server_bin_directory/dbbkapi/

Problem conclusion

  • The "Configuring a server instance to use shared memory"
    section in the Problem Determination Guide will be updated to
    include the correct path to the Tivoli Storage Manager API
    configuration file. This is the correct path:
    On AIX, Linux, Solaris, and HP-UX, the dsm.sys is in
    server_bin_directory/dbbkapi.
    On Windows, the location of the tsmbdmgr.opt is in the server
    instance directory.
    
    Affected platforms: AIX, HP-UX, Solaris, Linux, and Windows.
