ADSM Symposium 1999 : Meeting the Challenge

Proceedings from the symposium ...

Speaker Agenda Topic Topic Abstract
Michael Abel
Monitoring ADSM As ADSM/TSM becomes an important part of the IT infrastructure in more and more companies, day-to-day operations and especially monitoring of ADSM is an essential task for ADSM administrators. Besides the question ofwhat parameters have to be looked at, one has to decide what tools may be used for this purpose.

Facing the Challenges Today Even without the Y2K, there are many things to challenge us. Software products are always claming to reduce your effort or overhead, but invariably new features or products eat up any savings that may be present. And then, there is that old favorite phrase "Do More with Less ". This session will outline the key issues that one ADSM Manager had to deal with over the past year, and will provide some suggestions on how to ease the crunch on both the administrator and the end user.

Securing your Assets An ADSM server will be, by its very nature, a critical facility for any site which has one. This talk will attempt an overview of the many different aspects of security which surround such a facility. Particular attention will be given to dealing with deliberate intrusions and the dangers from remote hackers. I will summarise the current exploits being used over the last few months.
Kevin Mercer
Server to Server: Implementation and Experiences Presenting some challenges we had that were solved by the ADSM server to server model. Specifically areas such as DRP and tape drive sharing. The DRP discussion will focus on database and log recovery via server to server. Tape drive sharing via server to server over fast networks etc.

DCE/DFS/AFS Experiences Since the advent of network based file systems like NFS, AFS, DCE/DFS, or Windows NT, a file can no longer be attributed to a single host or node, and notions like "filespace" lose part of their meaning. Providing a framework for using ADSM under these circumstances is the more crucial, the more a file system tends to be world-wide, as are AFS and DCE/DFS. Experience shows that this challenge for ADSM is not yet fully met.

Pushing the Limits Oxford University has run ADSM since 1995, has met system limitations and has, at times, struggled to keep upwith the demand. This year has been a time for a major service review, especially of the campus backup service. Recent system updates, future plans and perceived bottlenecks for future expansion will be presented.
