Hello Experts,

I am new to MaxDB and Content Server.Please help me to my below queries which will be very helpful to me.

1. I have installed content server 6.40 MaxDB 7.6.

2. I have installed DBStudio for MaxDb Administration.

3. I have installed ADINT/TSM Client as I need to use IBM TSM server for backup/restore.

Please provide me the steps to do backup/restore of MaxDb database using TSM.

Thank you again.

    Please make sure that you've also applied the latest MaxDB database patch.

    The installation media for the SAP products usually contain some ancient version of the database software, so installing the current patch is imperative to avoid known problems.

    As usual I've to ask: what's wrong with the documentation?

    --> [Connecting Backup Tools from Other Providers|http://maxdb.sap.com/doc/7_6/43/e0f23ab6b4317de10000000a11402f/content.htm]

    --> [Connecting to TSM|http://maxdb.sap.com/doc/7_6/30/a7f03e33483d67e10000000a114084/content.htm]

    Try and see if this already answers your questions (it should) first.

    regards,

    Lars

      Hi All,

      All the issues with ADINT/TSM backup has been resolved.

      Log Backup and Data Backup is going successful.

      Completed restore/Recovery step as well.All went fine.

      Can any one tell me, If I want to delete the existing log files manually and test for Restore/Recovery of Backup, It is getting failed if I use DBMGUI and DBMCLI.

      Should I select Recovery with Initialization in this case of Testing?Please explain?If any links/docs available, then it will be helpful.

      Regards,
