Problem:

If you are experiencing problems backing up on OES Linux with a backup product that is using Novell's SMS, and you need information about what might be failing, you can put the TSAFS in debug mode and get a debug log.

Solution:

How do you enable the debug options in tsafs on Linux?

  1. cd to /opt/novell/sms/bin/


  2. Unload TSA with the following command:
    ./smsconfig -u tsafs


  3. Reload the TSA with the following command:
    ./ smsconfig -l tsafs --smsdebug fffffffc --smsdebug2 fffffffc


  4. Run any test that causes the failure that you want the debug log on.


  5. Unload the TSA with the following command:
    ./smsconfig -u tsafs


  6. Collect or view the log at /var/opt/novell/log/sms/tsafs_debug_xxxx.log (the xxxx represents some number)


  7. Reload the TSA with the following command:
    smsconfig -l tsafs
