The password for TDPO can be stored using the old method which produced a file named something like
TDPO.-rman. To duplicate a database using RMAN backups to say node2. You have to copy the password file,
TDPO.-rman, to node2. This works well.
However, TDPO has "new" method of storing a password which is written to a file called TSM.PWD. The people who are responsible for Tivoli are happy with this new method, because they do not need to change the password manually. It will be machine-generated periodically.
The problem is that you cannot simply copy the file from one server to another. You can name it differently, but the problem, at least my best guess at it, is that the new method of storing the password includes the name of the node on which the fie was created.
The old method of storing passwords still works, but again is not liked by our storage group. We are doing more and more duplications. Has anyone figured out how to use the TSM.PWD style password file with the rman duplicate target command.
