Data Storage Information

Questions and problems with backups and archives should be sent to help-backups-l@lsv.uky.edu.

If you would like to know more about backups and archives, then please see the TSM Backup Introduction web page or send email to the address above. Even if you have interacted directly with a TSM admin in the past, please use the email address above. That helps avoid problems when someone is out of the office.

The main backups machine is backups.uky.edu. There are other TSM servers and you may not back up to the master instance, depending on your requirements and the availablity of space. The main machine for HSM storage is hsm.uky.edu, which you access with sftp. HSM depends on the TSM servers for tape handling.

Be aware that you can not use your HSM userid until you set an e-mail address for that userid. To do that, ssh to hsm.uky.edu, select Set Email Address, and follow the instructions.

SFTP to HSM takes you to a disk holding area for the tape storage system. You can ssh to hsm.uky.edu to change your e-mail address, change your password, and to perform other functions.
