Configuring the TSM Connection

Use

You configure the MaxDB software with the aim of connecting the MaxDB database tools for backing up, restoring, importing, or exporting data to the external backup tool TSM. For this you use the TSM client adint2. If this client is not available on the platform that you use, you can also connect TSM to MaxDB by using Backint for Oracle.
