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.

Edit the file /etc/opt/novell/sms/smdrd.conf
below the line
insert the line

This will automatically start the tsands every time the server is rebooted.
