17.In Figure 5-67, we assign the server name that Tivoli Storage Manager will
use as well as its password. The server password is used for server-to-server
communications. We will need it later on with Storage Agent.This password
can also be set later using the administrator interface. We click Next.
Figure 5-67 Server name and password
Important: the server name we select here must be the same name we will
use when configuring Tivoli Storage Manager on the other node of the MSCS.

18.We click Finish in Figure 5-68 to start the process of creating the server
instance.

19.The wizard starts the process of the server initialization and shows a progress
bar (Figure 5-69).

20.If the initialization ends without any errors, we receive the following
informational message. We click OK (Figure 5-70).

21.The next task the wizard performs is the Cluster Configuration. We click Next
on the welcome page (Figure 5-71).

22.We select the cluster group where Tivoli Storage Manager server will be
configured and click Next (Figure 5-72).
Important: Do not forget that the cluster group we select here, must match
the cluster group used during the server initialization wizard process in
Figure 5-63 on page 131.

23.In Figure 5-73 we can configure Tivoli Storage Manager to manage tape
failover in the cluster.
Our lab environment does not meet the requirements for tape failover
support, so we select Do not configure TSM to manage tape failover and
then click Next.
Note: MSCS does not support the failover of tape devices. However, Tivoli
Storage Manager can manage this type of failover using a shared SCSI bus
for the tape devices. Each node in the cluster must contain an additional SCSI
adapter card. The hardware and software requirements for tape failover to
work and the configuration tasks are described in “Appendix A” of the Tivoli
Storage Manager for Windows Administrators Guide.

24.In Figure 5-74 we enter the IP Address and Subnest Mask that Tivoli Storage
Manager virtual server will use in the cluster. This IP address must match the
IP address selected in our planning and design worksheets (see Table 5-2 on
page 120).
Figure 5-74 IP address
25.In Figure 5-75 we enter the Network name. This must match the network
name we selected in our planning and design worksheets (see Table 5-2 on
page 120). We enter TSMSRV01 and click Next.
