Passwordaccess=prompt issue w/TMS pwd on client; ans2050e

Passwordaccess=prompt issue w/TMS pwd on client; ans2050e

Passwordaccess=prompt issue w/TMS pwd on client; ans2050e

Trying to change client to prompt for TMS password instead of using generate. We're currently using passwordaccess generate in DSM.SYS on the client.  Want to change to passwordaccess prompt but we always run DSMC SCHED in the background on the client server and this is causing the following problems as shown in DSMERROR.LOG on client:  

02/13/07   16:28:10 ANS1029E Communication with the  TSM server is lost.
02/13/07   16:28:11 ANS2050E TSM needs to prompt for the password but cannot prompt  because the process is running in the background.

Anyone know a way around this background issue so that we can use pwd prompting on client? I haven't found anything yet; including on IBM websites.  TMS version 5.3   Thanks for any input.

Cant u point the scheduler to a different optionfile then the backup client? The scheduler with the generate setting, and the client with the prompted setting?

May want to check out the following tech note:

ANS1029E ReadPswdFromRegistry ANS1835E ANS1025E
 Technote (FAQ)
Invalid, missing, or corrupted TSM password in registry for Windows B/A client,  
Registry value was corrupted / erased, or TSM client password was updated by an Administrator on TSM server with "update node".  
If TSM client nodename's password is missing or corrupted in Windows registry, TSM scheduled operations may fail. Symptoms are different depending on the TSM client release level. Below example are messages for CAD managed schedules:

5.2.x.x TSM client:
pssec.cpp ( 711): ReadPswdFromRegistry(): RegOpenPathEx(): Win32 RC=2 .
pssec.cpp ( 767): ReadPswdFromRegistry(): RegOpenPathEx(): Win32 RC=2 .
ANS1029E Communications have been dropped.

5.3.x.x TSM client
ANS1835E PASSWORDACCESS is GENERATE, but password needed for server 'SERVERNAME'.
Either the password is not stored locally, or it was changed at the server.
ANS1025E Session rejected: Authentication failure
ANS1570E Registering this instance of the Cad with the server failed. Cad process continues.
ANS2050E TSM needs to prompt for the password but cannot prompt because the process is running in the background.
ANS1029E Communication with the TSM server is lost.
ANS1977E Dsmcad schedule invocation was unsuccessful. This command will be tried again in 10 minutes.

Reset TSM client password manually when prompted, or use DSMCUTIL utility to set password.
dsmcutil updatepw /node:<nodename> /password:<password>
dsmcutil update cad /name:<TSM CAD service name> /node:<nodename> /password:<password>

TSM client stores encrypted passwords in the following Registry Key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\ADSM\CurrentVersion\BackupClient\Nodes\<nodename>\<TSM servername>\
