McVey Hall TSM Replacement Scheduled

POSTED: SEPTEMBER 24, 2012

TSM (Tivoli Storage Manager) is a client/server tool for backing up, or archiving data from various machines to a central server. Replacement of several tape slots in the McVey Hall TSM tape library is needed to prevent future problems. Therefore, on Wednesday September 26, 2012, the TSM for restores or backups (which require tape access) and files stored on hsm.uky.edu (which have been migrated to tape) will be unavailable from 9:00am-5:00pm. SAP activities requiring TSM will not be affected as the primary copies of SAP data are on a different library.

While an outage during the day may be inconvenient, a night outage would prevent running of nightly backups. A message repeating this information will be sent to the contact person for each machine using TSM backups.

For questions or issues outside this timeframe, please contact the UKIT Service Desk at 859-218-HELP (4357).
