Restarting the Tivoli AIX client

iscbanner-mosaicThere is an AIX box at work that I have a TSM client on, and I have had to make some changes to it. As I was not experienced in AIX, I had to find how to stop the Tivoli client process and then re-enable it for the changes to take effect. Here is how to do it:

To list the TSM processes, use:
ps -eaf|grep dsmc

To kill them, use:
kill -9 (process id)

Then, restart:
dsmcad
nohup dsmc schedule 2> /dev/null &

…This will start the dsm client access daemon for the web services, and start the scheduler so that it will continue to run, not unlike a service after the administrator logs off of the AIX system.
