This intermediate course is for anyone responsible for selling, deploying, or administering TSM FastBack.
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack utilizes disk-based, block-level, incremental-forever technology to protect database, mail, and file servers in the SMB environment. This three-day course enables you to implement, configure, and support the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack product. Learn to install the server and client components of the product, define the repository, and use the FastBack Manager interface to create a client groups, job schedules, and policies to protect the data and operating system volumes on application servers in the laboratory environment. Practice performing full and incremental snapshot backups, restore individual files and folders, and recover entire data volumes. Using Tivoli Storage Manager for Exchange, gain experience restoring e-mail attachments and e-mail messages from a point-in-time snapshot of a Microsoft Exchange server database, use search criteria to locate items of interest, and save selected items to a PST file. You will also examine the repository cleanup process in detail and examine the considerations for deleting snapshots from the repository. After reviewing the various scenarios for implementing data replication to provide for disaster recovery, you install and configure the DR Hub Server component, select policies to be replicated, schedule the replication process, and use the Central Control Station to monitor the operation. The course also covers use of the Bare Machine Recovery CD to restore an operating system volume, and explore the Any-to-Any Hardware functionality provided by the product.
