Grant Archive Access To Other User(s) Using the Command Line
The TSM command to grant access to your files is “set access“. The syntax for “set access” is:
Set Access Archive/Backup $filespect $nodename $userid
If the parameter $userid is omitted, by default it points to all users(*).
To grant user2 access to your archived files:
$ dsmc -se=my_userid Protect> set access archive * user2 ANS1148I 'Set Access' command successfully completed
To grant user2 access to some of your archived files:
$ dsmc -se=my_userid Protect> set access archive path-to-file user2
To query who can access your files:
$ dsmc q access -se=my_userid Type Node User Path ---- ---------------------------- Archive user2 * *
To delete the access rules, for example:
$ dsmc delete access -se=jiangd03 Index Type Node User Path ----- ---- ---------------------------- 1 Archive THAKUB02 thakub02 /hpc/users/jiangd03/*/* 2 Archive THAKUB01 * /hpc/users/jiangd03/find-active-user-mail/* 3 Archive THAKUB01 * /hpc/users/jiangd03/find-active-user-mail/*/* Enter Index of rule(s) to delete, or quit to cancel:
This command will list all the access rules by index. You can enter the index number if you want to delete that rule.
Access other user’s archived files using command line
After the access is granted by user1, you can query and retrieve user1‘s archived file:
$ dsmc q archive -se=my_userid -fromnode=user1 -fromowner=user1 path-to-file $ dsmc retrieve -se=my_userid -fromnode=user1 -fromowner=user1 path-to-file path-to-my-dir
Note: After retrieval, the owner and group of the retrieved file will automaticly changed to be the same as retriever.
