This course is the first of two five-day instructor-led courses for implementing, configuring and administering IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. In hands-on practice, you install the Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3 server, backup-archive client, the Tivoli Integrated Portal, and Administration Center. After the product is installed, you configure the environment. You create and configure storage pool hierarchies and define policies to manage the flow of data from disk to disk or tape media. Lab exercises guide you through the steps to back up, restore, archive and retrieve client data. You also create schedules to run administrative and client processes and maintain your Tivoli Storage Manager environment to ensure recoverability. The Student Exercises are available for Windows and AIX (see course TSX12G). The lecture material covers all supported Intel and UNIX platforms
Students who need advanced administration skills should also take course - IBM Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3 Advanced Administration, Tuning, and Troubleshooting (TS622)
All IBM courses are delivered by IBM Global Training Providers.

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting
aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your
business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
