New DNS domain, same host name
You didn't say, but I presume you are still backing it up to the same
TSM server, even though you are moving it to another data center?
If so, this is no problem. You aren't changing the TSM node name, just
the IP. When you first bring it up you might want to bring up the TSM
client linemode and issue a 'q sched' just to make sure it connects just
fine, and doesn't have problems authenticating. It might ask for your
password in this case, I am not sure.
The TSM activity log will produce a message one time that says that the
IP address for the server is changing, but that is just informational,
nothing to worry about.

Subject: [ADSM-L] New DNS domain, same host name
A sys admin here is moving a Linux virtual machine (vm) to a different
VMWare ESX server at another data center. The virtual machine will have
a new ip number and hardware address. It will have a different domain
name, but the same host name. That is, wsa350.uits.indiana.edu will
become wsa350.uits.iupui.edu. The vm is registered with a TSM node name
of wsa350. We prefer not to change that. Session Initiation is set to
The sys admin wants to keep the existing backups of the vm.
Is this a non-issue? Will starting the client scheduler after the move
be enough to reestablish the TCP/IP Name, TCIP/IP Address and
Globally Unique ID for the node? Is any other action needed to keep
the old backups useable by the node?
With my thanks,
