Once complete we can issue the Terminate command straight in the CSMCLI interface. We
can see the result in Example 5-22.

This completes the section about how to manage Copy Services tasks in a ESS 800
environment through TPC for Replication.
5.4 TPC for Replication and DS8000
In this section we discuss various Copy Services tasks and how they are carried out with TPC
for Replication in a DS8000 environment. For a DS6000 there is no difference compared to
the DS8000. If you have gone through 5.3, “TPC for Replication and ESS 800” on page 112
you will notice that there is almost no difference compared to what follows in this section for
the DS8000. A major design goal for TPC for Replication is to provide the same look and feel
to all functions in TPC for Replication independent on the application server platform and the
storage volumes. TPC for Replication manages all volume types in the same consistent
What is different between the DS8000 and the DS6000 in the TPC for Replication
environment is the way each storage subsystem is defined to the TPC for Replication server.
We will discuss how to define each storage subsystem using the GUI and the CSMCLI.
5.4.1 Adding a DS8000 / DS6000 storage server to TPC-RM using the GUI
Before we go through the steps about how to define a DS8000 to TPC for replication you
need to understand the connectivity requirements between the TPC for Replication server

and the DS8000 storage server which is going to be defined to the TPC for Replication
Connectivity between TPC-RM servers and DS6000 / DS8000
Figure 5-176 is a brief repetition on what was already discussed in Chapter 2, “TPC for
Replication planning” on page 19
Figure 5-176 Connectivity structure between TPC for Replication server and DS storage servers
Figure 5-176 shows that a LAN is required between the Replication Manager server(s) and
the DS6000s and the DS8000s which are going to be connected to the Replication Manager
servers before we can start to manage Copy Services tasks with these DS storage servers.
To connect the DS6000 connect the network in which the TPC-RM server resides to the
internal network of the DS6000 which is already used by the SMC server.
It is different for the DS8000. Here the TPC-RM server does not connect to the internal or
external HMCs of the DS8000 but rather to newly installed and dedicated Ethernet ports.
These ports have to be defined before you can connect to these ports with the TPC-RM
server. See 4.1, “DS8000 Ethernet card configuration” on page 62.
Configuration details for DS6000 / DS8000 connectivity to TPC-RM
Before we define a DS6000 or a DS8000 to TPC for Replication server it is important to
understand the difference about how TPC for Replication servers connect to a DS6000 and
how they connect to a DS8000.
Figure 5-177 on page 199 displays the IP address structure about how TPC for Replication
connects to a DS8000. It requires a dedicated and new Ethernet card which installs directly
into the Series p based servers in the DS8000. In each server are four or five empty slots
available. This new Ethernet card installs in the first slot of each Series p server.
