Chapter 6. Next steps: Getting the IBM Tivoli
Storage Manager server ready
for production
Up to this point, we installed and started the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server. We extended
the size of the ITSM database, recovery log, and BACKUPPOOL disk storage pool. We
performed these tasks through examples using the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Web
administrative client interface tree structure and the Server Command window. Finally, we
verified that the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server was working by saving a test file from an
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Windows client to the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server.
In this chapter, you perform further configuration steps to help prepare the IBM Tivoli Storage
Manager server for a production environment.
By our definition, “getting the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server ready for production” means
that we are describing realistic and meaningful backup functions and at least covering
detailed disaster recovery requirements. We use this phrase to set boundaries around the
scope and details of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server capabilities that we can cover in a
book such as this one, that is focused on IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server and Backup
Recovery and Media Services (BRMS) integration. We imply similar boundaries through the
wording of the title of Chapter 8, “Backup Recovery and Media Services up and running” on
page 155.
