TSM Config file: Windows

Summary

The TSM client applications are configured by the use of plain-text config files, though some TSM client interfaces (notably Windows) offer a "wizard"-based interface to assist configuration tasks. The following is an annotated example of the configuration which might result from a trip through these wizards.  This example has conventions and options appropriate for a Windows system.  In Windows, this file should be saved as "dsm.opt".

Users of the "EXT" server might be able to use the following configuration verbatim, except for the node name. The options in this file are documented in the client manuals, which are linked to from the Administrator Documentation page.
