TSM Web admin GUI in TSM5.3


Since TSM (IBM Backup Solution) version 5.3, the old web Admin GUI has been replaced by a servlet called the ISC console. Now, generally everyone dislikes ISC, cause it's slow, and uses quite some resources. One can, however, restore the old admin GUI in 5.3 :

IBM has made the old gui available for download. The site contains an installation procedure as well. After installation, you'll notice that the timeout parameter is set quite low. This is not the IdleTimeOut parameter found out in the options set. Modify the timeout value by issueing the command :

set webauthtimeout 60

which would define a web admin timout value of 60 minutes.
