The application requires JVM 1.8
Front-end is not required Java for work. Just run browser and go

Install Tivoli Storage Client with TSM Administrative clients (dsmadmc) (recommend the use version 7.x);

windows
=====================
1. extract zip file to any directory
2. copy key.lic to application path
3. install_service.cmd as Administrator from7cmd (shift+right click mouse run “run as different user”)
4. check status windows service “TSMExplorer Server”

if you don’t have administrative rights can start the application as standalone from cmd
>java -Xmx512m -jar tsmexp.jar start

unix (AIX, LINUX, OSX, SOLARIS)
======================
1. extract zip file to any directory
2. copy key.lic to application path
3. set chmod 0755 for tsmexp.rc
4. change variable PATH_TSMEXPLORER to absolute path in tsmexp.rc
5. run ‘tsmexp.rc start’ for start service
– run ‘tsmexp.rc stop’ for stop service
– run ‘tsmexp.rc status’ show status service
– run ‘tsmexp.rc restart’ restart service
– run ‘tsmexp.rc license’ show license

For autostart you can use inittab file or set tsmagent.rc to /etc/init.d

for activation function work with IBM Libraries(3500, 4500) set ibmlib = true

example
========
tsmagent::once:/usr/tivoli/tsm/tsmexplorer/tsmexp.aix.rc start > /dev/console 2>&1 # TSM TSMExplorer

The application has started
wait 30 seconds
open browser and go to https://your_host:5020/start

default access login/password – admin/admin

change default administrative password from console
>java -jar tsmexp.jar -password YOUR_NEW_PASSWORD

Update
=======
– stop application service
– update all files and path except app.cfg and tsmexp.rc

Problem
=======
If you can’t connect to TSM server ver 8.x try “upd admin tsmadmin SESSIONSECuri=TRANSitio”

For windows TSM servers
=======================
If you are feeling that application works too slow with windows TSM server then add record to c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts on TSM host

ip_address_tsm_servers hostname_tsm_servers

that TSM server resolves own name without DNS
