The customer tells the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) administrator that a Windows file server has to be upgraded and therefore is put into maintenance. The manager wants to have the data immediately available for restore in the event of problems. What is one of the actions of the TSM administrator?
What is the difference between random disk and sequential file storage pools?
Random disk storage pools use the predefined deviceclass DISK.
Where are the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Versioning policies stored?
Backup copy group

A customer has a large Windows server environment. The incremental backup is a problem. The backup window stays within acceptable limits. However the policy has changed this year and more versions need to be kept because of business reasons. What should the customer do to reduce the amount of data to handle in case of a disaster?
The customer should back up to disk and copy the data to an active-data pool. Bring the tapes of the active data pool to the recovery site.
The retrieve command is used for obtaining copies of which type of files/folders?
A file is archived to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) for one year. It is then immediately deleted from the source server. What happens to the archive data for this file in TSM?
It is kept in TSM for one year, then it expires.
A server has a damaged disk drive. The application on the servers needs data. There is space on the remaining drives. The helpdesk operator is asked to restore the files to a different directory. How can the helpdesk operator use the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) Web client to perform the restore?
WEB GUI > restore > select files > start restore > select target location > restore
An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) Server is configured to run daily incremental backups and bi- monthly archive, keeping the incremental backups for three months and keeping the archive for one year. After running for six months the system administrator needs to recover a folder from five months ago. Which recovery option will they need to use?
A system administrator is asked to restore a deleted file. The user knows the name of the file and they believe the file was deleted on January 3. Which option can the administrator use to restore the file?
Which two logs should be checked first when a schedule has failed? (Choose two.)
Error log on the client
Schedule log on the client
What is a benefit when using reclamation?
To free up unused space on sequential volumes
An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) administrator wants to register a node on a source replication server. To do this the administrator must define NODE1 to a source replication server, specify a replication rule for the backup data that belongs to NODE1 so that active backup data is replicated with a high priority, and enable replication for the node. Which command completes this task?
Register node node1 bkrep1ruledefault=active_data_high_priority replstate=enabled
What is a special characteristic of a sequential access storage pool on disk?
It can be used for data deduplication.
An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) administrator runs a disaster recovery (DR) test. At the DR facility, the administrator needs to restore the TSM database. In which stanza of the DR plan file is the file or tape name for the database backup located?
Which command allows one node to restore another node's data?
What are two advantages of the IBM Tivoli data protection products? (Choose two.)
The application is backed up in a consistent state.
Backups can be done online without interrupting the application.
An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) administrator wants to define a client schedule called CLIENTS for all nodes in the BACKUP domain to begin at 6:00 PM. Which command defines the schedule?
Define schedule BACKUP CLIENTS t=c startt=18:00
How does a logical volume backup appear to the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Server?
As a single object
There have been a lot of changes on the servers and the customer wants to be sure that all data has been backed up. The events show that the schedules have been run. What information could be checked to ensure the operation completed successfully?
Use the query event command
How can a version of a file that is not the latest backup be restored using the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager client GUI?
Click the View menu > Display Active/Inactive Files.
What is a benefit of using LAN-free data transfer?
The data path completely bypasses the LAN and the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Server.
A customer created a schedule and is checking the results. What is the correct sequence of a successful incremental scheduled backup?
Future, pending, started, running, completed
Which command starts server deduplication?
Which type of storage pools can be reclaimed?
only sequential storage pools
There is a problem on a Windows system that has backed up its data to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. The server retains unlimited versions for at least four days. It appears a user has caused corruption in a certain directory. The customer wants to check what has been changed and wants the data restored from that directory as it was three days ago so the contents can be compared. Which client option makes this possible?
