Problem:

When adding Linux servers to your network you may find that you need to back them up from a NetWare server. In order to backup the Linux server from the NetWare backup server, you need to put the TSA in either NetWare mode or in Dual mode.

Solution:

Unload the tsafs, then reload it with the appropriate switch below.

/opt/novell/sms/bin/smsconfig -u tsafs (To unload the tsafs)

/opt/novell/sms/bin/smsconfig -l tsafs --tsamode=NetWare (To put it in NetWare mode)

/opt/novell/sms/bin/smsconfig -l tsafs --tsamode=dual (To put it in Dual mode, i.e both NetWare and Linux)

Updated – July 20, 2007:

The /etc/opt/novell/sms/smdrd.conf file’s “autoload: tsafs” line can be changed to “autoload: tsafs –tsamode=NetWare” or “autoload: tsafs –tsamode=dual” to load it in NetWare and dual mode respectively every time smdrd daemon comes up.

Note: after making the change to the configuration the smdrd has to be restarted for the changes to take effect.
