This course is designed for Tivoli Storage manager administrators.
This in-depth administration training is for administrators with a fundamental knowledge of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. It uses Tivoli Storage Manager 7.1 Extended Edition at a higher skill level than the Implementation and Administration course. Administrators learn how to control and tune the Tivoli Storage Manager environment and what steps to take when troubleshooting. The lab exercises explore the DB2 database management methods and options, using the disaster recovery plan file and SQL scripts. The exercises involve multiple servers to simulate an enterprise environment. You participate in group problem determination exercises, perform backup and restore processes, and optimize data management, such as data deduplication. You also tune the backup-archive client and the Tivoli Storage Manager 7.1 server for optimal performance.
