Hi
At the time when I had to Switch the CMOD from a Solaris to Linux there was no TSM for Linux avalable, so I had to do a Migration
from the TSM to a Windows Server Version.

CMOD 10.5 Is running on REL8 and Spectrum Protect on Server 2016 at the moment.

Since we have now some issues  :-\ with the Spectrum Protect running on the Windows Server we made the desission to go back to a REL8 even if it's alot of work again but I guess there will be better performance again between Server and ECS.

Now I am just wondering what you would recomend for the Spectrum Protect Installation or what best practice would be.

CMOD 10.5 running on a seperate REL8 System and also Spectrum Protect on his own REL8 ?
Or would you install the Spectrum Protect on the actual CMOD 10.5 Server so I would have both on one System again ?

This was the case when I was running cmod and tsm on a solaris maybe 15 years ago.

Are there some issues for a migration back to Linux ?

Thanks in advance
for some Opinions

Dani

Hey Dani.

You might get more help from the mailing list & forums dedicated to ADSM / TSM / Spectrum Protect at ADSM.org.

As for architectural issues, you can absolutely run TSM and CMOD on the same server, but you'll want to add more RAM and CPU.  You may want to keep them separate if you have a very high level of transactions, to help spread the load across separate servers.

Alternately, you could migrate the data to any number of the cloud storage options, or even just a plain filesystem if your storage is in the sweet spot.

How much data do you have stored in TSM, or do you have a tape library?

That's not really enough information for us to be able to answer your question. 

Can you give us details about how the system is configured so we can better understand your situation?
