Backup, TSM Mailing List

For IT Pros: The Enterprise Backup service provides campus IT pros with regularly scheduled server and workstation backups.

  • General discussion of usage or problems with the Enterprise Backup server or the client software
  • Discussion of requirements that may be forwarded on to Tivoli/IBM support by the Enterprise Backup administrator
