I have an HACMP cluster consisting of two nodes. Both have a rootvg,
plus a VG of stuff specific to itself, and also a sharded VG that is
under the control of HACMP as a resource. Backups of the rootvgs is
taken care of on each node by separate mksysbs, so no problem there.
What I think I would like to do is install a TSM Backup/Archive client
on each node, ie client names "Node_A" and "Node_B", which will ensure
that the specific stuff is backed up to the TSM server against the node
it came from. Then for the information in the sharedVG, I would like to
install a second TSM backup/archive client, ie client name of
"cluster_App", which could be defined to HACMP as an application
resource group, so which ever node it resides on (following the
shardedVG during failover), the TSM server will always be able to backup
the sharedvg data by referring to the single TSM node name. However I'm
unable to tell if I can set up the TSM clients this way.
Does anyone know if this is possible or can offer an alternative
