This solution assumes that you have completed all steps successfully in Download, Install, and Configure Tivoli Storage Manager for Macintosh. It also assumes that you have the confirmation email provided by the Division of Information Technology (IT) on your machine's backup registration. This solution will help you configure your TSM backup services responsible for performing scheduled backups on your Macintosh system. It will also take you through the steps to perform a small backup to test server connectivity and authentication.
With services and backup connectivity configured and tested, your system will backup according to the TSM schedule entry provided in the confirmation email. If your backup fails or is missed, an automatic alert is generated each morning that will email all technical contacts for the machine. It is the responsibility of the client administrators or users to correct any alerts and errors that may be received from the Division of IT. For further assistance, contact the Service Desk or email email@example.com.
