Start a backup from the TSM server

There is a way to start a backup from the TSM server itself, and that is by defining a client action. For example, to start an incremental backup on a node, run:

define clientaction action=incremental
You can use wild cards like * in the node name, for example:
def clienta node* act=i
You can monitor the schedule event, using the following command:
q ev * @1
You may cancel this schedule, by running:
delete schedule @1
