Configuration Notes for Tivoli Data Protection for Lotus Notes
- configuration options stored in %\Program Files\Tivoli\domino\TSM\dsm.opt.
-- Remote Server Information:
TCPServeraddress (Enter IP address of the TSM server)
TCPWindowsize 63
TCPBuffSize 32
NODEName mymailserverbackup (Enter the name your Tivoli administrator has set up for you. It will contain your Domino backup node with your server(s) in the node that you can restore from.)

PASSWORDAccess Generate (This stores the file locally, in either a tsm.pwd file or in the registry. If you don't have the password yet, it will ask and then auto-save it to the registry afterwards for repeat future use.)

-- Client Configuration:
TCPCLIENTPORT 1502 (Client port must be different than 'regular' backup one)

-- For Restore:

1. Run the Data Protection for Lotus Domino client (domdsm.exe)
2. Select the Restore tab.
3. Open the Backups on TSM node <mymailserverbackup> twistie, open the Backups from server <myserver> twistie, open the Domino data directory twistie.
4. Select the file(s) to be restored. Assuming you want to restore elsewhere, put the path in the "Restore Into" field (e.g. "w:\==" will install to my "W" network drive using same folder structure as original.
5. Click option to "Activate" to make sure we don't end up with a DAD file, but the fully restored NSF.
6. Click option to "Replace Existing Files" to overwrite any existing ones at the same location.

If the Tivoli DPM for Lotus Domino dialog hangs and you crash the Domino server, it is probably due to the fact that you started your RDP w/o being in console mode. To start a remote session in console mode, enter the following in a command terminal window:
mstsc --console
or (newer below)
mstsc /admin

Windows 2008 doesn't seem to have a root console anymore. (Hence why the Domino Console program is "required" to see the server.)

Make sure you do step 2, clicking the Restore tab, before playing with the file tree. Otherwise, you may find yourself waiting a while for it to show you files for backup instead of files for restore.
