If you enable the Application method, Tivoli Storage Manager will disable encryption and backups will be attempted. U24V validated with TSM 6. Example Define an encrypted storage pool so that Tivoli Storage Manager is the encryption key manager. Tivoli Storage Manager Server. V22D validated with TSM 5. Tivoli Storage Manager does not support an environment in which some drives use the Application method and some drives use another method of encryption.

Ensure that you back up the database frequently and safeguard the backups to prevent data loss or theft. To utilize this method, the parameter must be set bp ON.

Complete the following steps: H13D validated with TSM 5. When the parameter is set to ON, backup operations will fail if the hardware is configured for another encryption method. The default bp is to allow another method of encryption. If data is written to volumes using the new format and if the volumes are then returned to scratch, they will contain labels that are only readable by encryption-enabled drives.

United States English English. Keys are passed to the drive by a key manager in order to encrypt and decrypt data. Using Drive Encryption In order to utilize drive encryption, your Tivoli Storage Manager environment should be set up so that all drives in a library support the new encryption format.


Other volumes, for example, backup sets, export volumes, and database backup volumes will not be encrypted. Example Define an encrypted storage pool so that Tivoli Storage Manager is the encryption key manager. For drive encryption support, Tivoli Storage Manager version 5. Contact and feedback Need support? Data is decrypted on READ operations. Tivoli Storage Manager generates and stores the keys in the server database.

Setting wix Encrypted Storage Pools You can set up encrypted storage pools to protect tapes that contain critical or sensitive data. To ensure that data for off-site volumes is protected, TSM Server can utilize T Encryption protocols to encrypt and decrypt data sent to tape drives which can support T Security tlo4.

Anyone who has access to both the database backup and the encryption keys has access to your data. All LTO-4 drives in this technote have a data compression ratio of 2: W validated with TSM 5.

Application encryption is supported with LTO-4 drives. This is particularly beneficial for tapes that are removed from the Tivoli Storage Manager server environment to an off-site location. Application managed encryption is only supported for storage pool volumes.

This protocol utilizes a stronger level of encryption by requiring bit Advanced Encryption Standard AES encryption keys.

In order to restore your data, you must have the correct database backup and corresponding encryption keys to access your information. The data encryption feature is currently not supported on Sun StorageTek Ultrium drives.


If you enable the Application method, Tivoli Storage Manager will disable encryption lot4 backups will be attempted. To use these scratch volumes in a drive that is not enabled for encryption, either because the hardware is not capable of encryption or because the encryption method is set to OFF, you must relabel them.

With this method, encryption keys are managed by the application, np this case, Tivoli Storage Manger. ON Specifies that Tivoli Storage Manager is the key manager for drive encryption and will permit drive encryption for empty storage pool volumes only if the Application method is enabled through the hardware.

To disable encryption on new volumes, the parameter should be set to OFF. If you specify ON and enable another method of encryption, drive encryption will not be permitted and backup operations will fail.

U24V validated with TSM 6.

First, define your library: However, drive encryption for empty volumes is permitted if another method of encryption is enabled. W52F validated with TSM 5.
