Note June, 2010: New Server Name for ADSM

Increasing use of the ACCC's ADSM service has recently caused us to add a third ADSM server machine. When we asked individuals to switch from the original server to, we asked them to reconfigure their TSM software, changing borh server address and port.

Rather than have to ask people to do this again as we now add (and again and again as we add additional servers), we have decided to give everyone their "own" ADSM server for their own ADSM account, with a name of the form:

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

The port in all cases will be 1500. If you are already using ADSM, this will require one more change on your part. But it will be the last, regardless of what the ACCC does on our end with our actual ADSM server machines.

You can switch to this nodename now; if you are already using ADSM, the instructions you need are in Switching to Your Personalized ADSM Server Hostname.


There are separate versions of TSM for just about all Mac OS versions, and they all work differently. (Archive services are not available.) The current major versions are:
