TSM uses Subfile backups to backup only changed portions of files over slow network links. TSM knows what parts of a file have changed, by storing checksum information in a cache file on the client. This command will display information about the subfile cache, if the client is configured to use subfile backup.
If you want to use extra capabilities like image backup, then they are provided by ?plug-ins?. You use this command to find out what plug-ins are available for this client.
SHOW SYSTEMOBJECT / SHOW SYSTEMSTATE:
You use these commands to find out what system facilities are installed, and which ones can be backed up with TSM. SYSTEMOBJECT is used forWindows 2000 and XP clients, and SYSTEMSTATE for Windows 2003 clients.
For Windows 2003 clients, displays the SYSTEM SERVICES data that is available on this client. Useful to determine which SYSTEM SERVICES files are installed on this Windows client and those that could be backed up.
