Setting up a TDP for SAP (R3) Client on AIX

Audience: This document assumes basic understanding of the AIX command line and also assumes that TSM B/A client was configured and TDP R3(TDP for SAP) was already been installed on the AIX client machine.

FYI.. installed packages can be queried with the following command on AIX prompt: lslpp -l | grep -i tsm

Log into the TSM Server:

  1. Register the TDP Node as a separate Client Node:

REGISTER NODE <NODE NAME> <PASSWORD> DOMAIN=DATABASE MAXNUMMP=8

Log into the Client Node:

  1. Change to the directory: /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/api/bin64

SAP1
  1. Copy the following settings below into dsm.opt:

SAP2
  1. Change to the directory: /oracle/<SID>/<ORACLE VERSION>/dbs (For example: /oracle/EBI/112_64/dbs)Change/Confirm the following settings in init<SID>.utl file (For Example: initEBI.utl):

SAP3
  1. Next, we have to setup the TDP password for the SID user.

  2. SU to the SID user: “su – ora<SID>” (For example: su – oraebi)

  3. Run the following command: backint -p <full path to UTL file>/init<SID>.utl -f passwordFor example: backint -p /oracle/EBI/112_64/dbs/initEBI.utl -f password

  4. You’ll be prompted for the password: Type the password that you used to register the node on the TSM server.

  5. Verify the setup as follows (still as a SID user):

  6. Run the following command: backint -p <full path to UTL file>/init<SID>.utl -f inquireFor example: backint -p /oracle/EBI/112_64/dbs/initEBI.utl -f inquire

  7. You’ll get the following prompt

SAP4
  1. Type → #NULL <RETURN>

  2. Type → Ctrl + D

  3. You should get a similar output below:

SAP5

NDMP Stuff…

NDMP Backups are special backups, where we will backup NAS Volumes directly to TSM.  NOTE: We are using the shared tape drives for both NAS and Normal backups. So no need to define a new tape library.
