Switching to Your Personalized ADSM Server Hostname

 

Rather than have to ask people switch to new ADSM servers again and again as we add new servers, we have given everyone their "own" ADSM server associated with their ADSM account. This page explains how to make this change if you already are using ADSM.

 
     
 
     
Your Personal ADSM Server Hostname
 

Rather than have to ask people switch to new ADSM servers again and again as we now new servers, we have given everyone their "own" ADSM server associated with their ADSM account, with a server hostname of the form:

yournodename.adsmserv.uic.edu

Nodenames are of the form: netid.adsm1, thus the server name for Ada Byron's adabyron.adsm1 ADSM account is:

adabyron.adsm1.adsmserv.uic.edu

The port in all cases is 1500. (Note that the ".adsm1" has nothing to do with the number of the ADSM server you are using -- it's the number of your ADSM account -- 1. )

Don't remember what you're nodename is? No problem; it's in your TSM software's configuration.

 
     
Changes on Your Computer
 

First, make sure you have the newest version of the TSM client for your operating system installed:

Then there are three things you must do to change your installation to ADSM-2:

  • Change your Server Address to yournodename.adsmserv.uic.edu and yournodename is yournetid.adsm1
  • Change your Server Port to 1500
  • Then either:
    • restart either your computer, if you are using the TSM Scheduler on Windows, or
    • restart the TSM Client Acceptor Daemon, on Macs and if you are using the Client Acceptor Daemon on Windows
 
     
Switching to your personal ADSM hostname on Macs
 
  1. Install the newest version of the TSM client for your version of MacOS, if necessary:
    ADSM TSM Backup for Apple Macintosh: Getting Started.
  2. Go then Applications then Tivoli Storage Manager then TSM Tools for Administrators.app
  3. A dialog box asking which TSM application you want to run with Administrator privileges; select Tivoli Storage Manager.
  4. Type an administrator's name and password in the boxes in the Authenticate dialog box and click OK.
  5. In the TSM client main menu, select Edit then Client Preferences.
  6. In the Preferences Editor, select General from the list on the left. Your nodename will be at the top, in the Node Name box. It will be of the form: yournetid.adsm1
    Take note of it.
  7. In the Preferences Editor, select Communication from the list on the left. On the right, change the Server Address to yournodename.adsmserv.uic.edu --which is yournetid.adsm1.adsmserv.uic.edu -- and the Server Port to 1500.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Quit TSM: Tivoli Storage Manager then Quit the Tivoli Storage Manager
  10. Start TSM Tools for Administrators again, this time selecting Stop the Client Acceptor Daemon
    1. Go then Applications then Tivoli Storage Manager then TSM Tools for Administrators.app
    2. A dialog box asking which TSM application you want to run with Administrator privileges will open; select Stop Client Acceptor Daemon.

    3. Type an administrator's name and password in the boxes in the Authenticate dialog box and click OK.
    4. Wait a little bit; a dialog box will open saying Done removing the Client Acceptor Daemon. Click OK.
  11. TSM Tools for Administrators again, this time selecting Start the Client Acceptor Daemon
    1. Go then Applications then Tivoli Storage Manager then TSM Tools for Administrators.app
    2. A dialog box asking which TSM application you want to run with Administrator privileges will open; select Start the Client Acceptor Daemon.
    3. A dialog box will open saying that the process takes a few minutes. Click OK.
    4. Type an administrator's name and password in the boxes in the Authenticate dialog box and click OK.
    5. A dialog box saying that the CAD started successfully will open. Click OK.
  12. Run a manual backup as described in the TSM for Mac installation guide for your version of Mac OS.

Note: Don't be confused that your personal server hostname isn't on the TSM Tools for Administrators Client Preferences's General tab. When using a personal server hostname, the Server Name on the General tab will not be the same as the Server Address on the Communications tab.
