The TSANDS is needed to backup eDirectory with backup engines or scripts that use Novell's Storage Management Services (SMS). The TSANDS can be loaded manually from a terminal with the command smsconfig -l TSANDS. This instructs the SMS services to load the TSANDS TSA. However, as soon as the server is rebooted the TSANDS TSA is no longer loaded. You will want a permanent method to load the TSANDS. To do that follow these instructions:
Edit the file /etc/opt/novell/sms/smdrd.conf
below the line
insert the line
Now the two lines should look like:
This will automatically start the tsands every time the server is rebooted.
