ANS1035S (RC406) Options file '*' could not be found.

Came across this the other day whilst installing TSM for Enterprise Resource Planning on an AIX 5L server:
Data Protection for mySAP.com(R) technology

Interface between SAPDBA Utilities and Tivoli Storage Manager

- Version 3, Release 3, Modification 10 for AIX LF 64-bit -

Build: 219 compiled on Dec 4 2003(c) Copyright IBM Corporation, 1996, 2003, All Rights Reserved.
BKI5014E: Tivoli Storage Manager Error:

ANS1035S (RC406) Options file '*' could not be found.


BKI5014E: Tivoli Storage Manager Error:ANS1035S (RC406) Options file '*' could not be found.

For a while now I have been symlinking the configuration files back to a central repository to make administration easier, so checking the symlinks is the most obvious place to start:
# ls -ltr /usr/tivoli/tsm/tdp_r3/ora64 | egrep "dsm.opt|dsm.sys"

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root system 16 Nov 20 14:34 dsm.sys -> /var/tsm/dsm.sys

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root system 20 Nov 20 14:35 dsm.opt -> /var/tsm/backint.opt

Does backint.opt exist and is it valid?
# cat /var/tsm/backint.opt

SErvername TSM_BACKINT

* TRACEFILE /tmp/trace.out

* TRACEFLAGS api api_detail verbinfo verbdetail timestamp

What about DSM.SYS?
# cat /var/tsm/dsm.sys
SErvername TSMPRD

So everything was looking to be configured correctly, so I attempted to turn on tracing on the TSM API but as the TDP could not find the option file it would not work.
The next logical step was to trace the client and figure out where it was dieing:
# truss brbackup -u / -c force -t offline_force -m all -p initDEV.sap -a -c force -p initDEV.sap -cds
execve("/usr/tivoli/tsm/tdp_r3/ora64/backint", 0x2FF22CCC, 0x2FF22CE4) argc: 5

kload("/usr/lib/nls/loc/en_US__64", 128, "") = 4026536384

kload("libi18n.a(shr_64.o)", 384, "/usr/ccs/lib") = 4026536536

access("/usr/lib/nls/msg/en_US/backintv3.cat", 0) = 0

open("/usr/lib/nls/msg/en_US/backintv3.cat", O_RDONLY) = 3

open("/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64/en_US/dsmclientV3.cat", 04) = 0

access("/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64/en_US/dsmclientV3.cat", 04) = 0 access("/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64/en_US/dsmclientV3.cat", 04) = 0open("/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64/dsm.sys", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) Err#2 ENOENT

Bingo - as it turns out I had forgotten to also create my symlinks to the configuration files in the "client/api/bin64" directory.

  1. Hi, I was looking for the TXNBytelimit on my dsmserv.opt file but it doesn't have it. I guess the value belongs to a older version of TSM. I have 5.3.2.
    Which is the equivalent if any and could you share a recommended value? Thanks.
