Some backup applications do not use TSA to back up eDirectory, so OES for Linux does not load tsands by default. In order to get your OES server to load tsands each time it boots up you can do the following.
cd to /etc/opt/novell/sms/
Under the line in the file that reads, "autoload tsafs," add the line "autoload tsands".
Save and close smdrd.conf.
Now when you reboot your OES for Linux server, tsands will be loaded automatically.
