Error description

  • Tivoli Storage Manager servers and client have a default setting
    which allows TSM clients who are not TSM-authorized to use
    certain options which can result in the roll-off of file backup
    versions and their replacement with files having same name made
    by TSM-authorized users.
    The client setting is controlled by use of the BACKUPINITIATION
    keyword of the REGISTER and UPDATE NODE commands.
    
    See the following security bulletin for details:
