Training Overview
http://www306.ibm.com/services/learning/ites.wss/us/en?pageType=course_list&subChapter=27&subChapt erInd=S&region=us&subChapterName=Tivoli+storage+management&country=us There are numerous classroom and CD based courses currently offered by IBM Learning services on TSM. The courses are as follows: IBM Tivoli Storage Manager 5.2 Implementation http://www306.ibm.com/services/learning/ites.wss?pageType=course_description&courseCode=TS572&cou ntry=us&language=en This course provides a good overview of TSM system administration. Most of the TSM concepts involved in doing single TSM server backups are covered and there are numerous hands on labs. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager 5.2 Total Integration http://www306.ibm.com/services/learning/ites.wss?pageType=course_description&courseCode=TS582&cou ntry=us&language=en

This course continues where the Implementation course left off. After a quick review of concepts, significant time is spent covering advanced operational issues of TSM including DB recovery and troubleshooting. In addition, the course covers issues involved in the administration of multiple TSM servers and reporting. A brief overview of the Data Protection agents for database and mail server backup is provided. Lan-Free and SAN implementation issues are discussed and demonstrated. IBM Tivoli Disaster Recovery Manager 5.2 http://www306.ibm.com/services/learning/ites.wss?pageType=course_description&courseCode=TS592&cou ntry=us&language=en This course covers using the TSM DRM module to automate the process of doing off-site media

storage and recovering from the loss of a TSM Server. Tivoli Storage Manager 5.1 for Storage Networking http://www3.ibm.com/services/learning/MainServlet.wss?pageType=course_description&courseCode=TIV4 2 This course covers Lan-Free/SAN backup and is provided as supplementary material for the 5.1 Implementation course. These courses will provide a good overview of how to plan for a TSM server configuration, how to set up and manage TSM servers, and how to use TSM to do file system/file-space backup.

Redbook Overview
IBM Redbooks are a great (and one of the only) publicly available sources of information on IBM software and hardware. Due to its maturity, there are numerous good Redbooks covering TSM. Below I have provided the ones I found most useful. Getting Started with Tivoli Storage Manager: Implementation Guide http://publibb. boulder.ibm.com/Redbooks.nsf/9445fa5b416f6e32852569ae006bb65f/0b2061426f5398468525 6cf70078a709?OpenDocument Revised for TSM 5.2, this Redbook is a combination Planning and Implementation Guide and Concept of Operations. It is a very good place to start if you are new to TSM and are looking for best practices for planning, sizing, and running a TSM server. Disaster Recovery Strategies with Tivoli Storage Manager http://publibb. boulder.ibm.com/Redbooks.nsf/9445fa5b416f6e32852569ae006bb65f/e679138e56505a0d852 56c6a00634b42?OpenDocument This Redbook provides details on DR scenarios. This redbook starts with a description of the DR process and planning. It then applies these concepts to recovering the TSM server and clients. Bare Metal Restore of various operating systems is discussed including AIX, Solaris, Win2k, and Linux. Bare Machine Recovery for Microsoft Windows 2003 and Windows XP http://publibb. boulder.ibm.com/Redbooks.nsf/9445fa5b416f6e32852569ae006bb65f/6b5c6c470a0247938525 6d3c005d48ff?OpenDocument This Redpiece describes using TSM with Windows ASR for Windows 2003 to do a Bare Machine Recovery.
