For tar file installation, such as for Gentoo systems.
Installing the client
Download the gzipped tar file
Install the software by untarring the file from the root directory.
After the software has been unpacked, to automatically configure the client run /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/HFSconfigure. This will prompt for the Spectrum Protect server name, the Nodename, the node Password, and whether to start the scheduler. If you are using a system with a startup script system significantly different to that used on Debian and Redhat systems, such as Gentoo, you may have to manually configure the scheduler to start.
tar -xhzf /tmp/ox-hfs-spectrum-protect-18.104.22.168-1.tgz
Upgrading the client
Save the files dsm.opt, dsm.sys, incl.excl and dsmsched.rc (if they exist) from /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/ to a safe area.
Remove the /opt/tivoli directory tree.
Download the tar file and untar as for a fresh installation.
Copy back the files you saved earlier back to /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/.
Run the /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/HFSconfigure script, which will upgrade the existing configuration.
If the update was successful you can continue to use the client as previously. Your scheduled backups should also continue to function as previously.
