TSM Upgrade Failure Troubleshooting

I ran into couple issues when upgrading my TSM server from 6.3.1 to 6.3.4. But I have successfully fixed them and upgraded my TSM.

Error 1: Deployment Engine failed to initialize


Cause: this was caused by that I forget to run the ‘de_chghostname’ command after I renamed the TSM server name.

Fix: Run de_chghostname.cmd comand.


Error 2: ‘Connection refused to port 4130’ error in the log


Cause: The connection to port 4130  timed out.

Fix: Create the following batch script to repeatedly connect to the 4130 port. Then run it when upgrading.

call “C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Common\acsi\bin\listIU.cmd”
timeout /T 50
goto top
