This is the first of two 5-day instructor-led courses for implementing and administering Tivoli Storage Manager. This course provides hands-on practice in implementing and administering a data management strategy with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager 5.5. The course begins with installing the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager 5.5 server and backup-archive client, and the Integrated Solution Console Administration Center. Students create and configure hierarchies of storage pools and define policies to manage the flow of data from disk to disk or tape media.

The back up and restore of client data, as well as performing long-term and offsite data management through archiving and retrieving of client data, is discussed and practiced. Finally, students will protect their IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server by automating the backup and restore of the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager databases and storage pools from offsite data storage pools.

The Student Exercises are available for AIX. The lecture material covers all UNIX platforms.

This course should be followed by IBM Tivoli Storage Manager 5.5 Advanced Administration, Performance Tuning and Problem Determination (AIX).
