TSM 6.1 Debian Client Request

Well TSM 6.1 has officially been out for about a month now and I have already received a request for a Debian client. Maybe Harry can help out in that area. Anyone want to try their hand at putting one together?

ACSLS Checkout Script Update

I Modified the ACSLS checkout script due to an Admin with BYU pointing out it doesn't work when the library clients reside on seperate servers. It was changed due to how TSM processes the CMDFILE= option in my MOVE DRM macro, plus if your TSM server names vary the while loop is not as easy to setup. So here is the new script and macro. I switched it to use an array for the servernames for easier processing when names don't follow a similar convention. Also you might need to modify the grep if your volumes don't start with L0 thru 4. If your volser is a different range just modify the grep so it will work for you.

New TSM Management Tool

I have been informed of a new TSM management tool called TSM Studio. It looks pretty slick, but I won't lie, I haven't had a chance to use it yet. If you are looking for a TSM tool check it out. I plan on posting a quick overview of all the TSM tools in the near future. If you have experience with any TSM tool (i.e. TSMManager, TSM Explorer, TSM Studio, AutoVault, Servergraph, Aptare, Bocada, or EMC's DPA) and are willing to write up a review of the product, let me know and we'll publish it here for others to use when deciding on a tool for their own environment.
