IBM Tivoli Storage Manager backup driver

The IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) backup driver enables performing volume backups to a TSM server.

The TSM client should be installed and configured on the machine running the cinder-backup service. See the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Backup-Archive Client Installation and User’s Guide for details on installing the TSM client.

To enable the IBM TSM backup driver, include the following option in cinder.conf:

backup_driver = cinder.backup.drivers.tsm

The following configuration options are available for the TSM backup driver.
