Chapter 22. VERITAS Cluster Server and the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Server 945
22.9 Configuring Tivoli Storage Manager devices
Before starting the tests of the Tivoli Storage Manager Server, we create the
necessary storage devices such as library, drives, and storage groups, using the
Administration Center. We created the devices based on Table 22-3 on
22.10 Testing the Tivoli Storage Manager on VCS
In order to check the high availability of Tivoli Storage Manager server on our lab
VCS environment, we must do some testing.
Our objective with these tests is to show how Tivoli Storage Manager, on a
Veritas clustered environment, manages its own resources to achieve high
availability and how it responds after certain kinds of failures that affect the
22.10.1 Testing incremental backup using the GUI client
Our first test uses the Tivoli Storage Manager GUI to start an incremental
The objective of this test is to show what happens when a client incremental
backup is started from the Tivoli Storage Manager GUI and suddenly the node
which hosts the Tivoli Storage Manager server in the VCS fails.
To do this test, we perform these tasks:
1. We open the Veritas Cluster Manager console to check which node hosts the
Tivoli Storage Manager Service Group as shown in Figure 22-65.
