Setting Up and Implementing ADSTAR Distributed Storage Manager/400

An IBM Redbooks publication


This document describes ADSTAR Distributed Storage Manager (ADSM)
from an AS/400 perspective. It deals with implementing the ADSM/400
server functions, and addresses installing and setting up the five
common client environments for the AS/400: OS/2, DOS, Microsoft
Windows, AIX, and Novell NetWare.

If you have more than 10 client workstations, such as PCs or PS/2s,
attached to your AS/400 and backup and recovery of files on these
workstations is becoming a nightmare, then ADSM/400 may be the product
you need. This publication will give you an overview of the things you
need to consider in using this important product for the AS/400 including
planning, performance, comparison with popular alternatives such as PC
Support shared folders, and also discusses interoperability with Backup
Recovery and Media Services/400 (5763-BR1).
