The archive server can be accessed from the RWTH network (VPN included) as well as from networks of cooperating institutions which makes it possible to access the archive even when visiting one of the cooperating institutions.
To be able to use the archive service a registration for our Identity Management is absolutely necessary!
The archive service requires a registration as RWTH-employee.
The archive is also available for users of the RV-NRW.
Please proceed as follows:
- Activate an account for the service "Archiv" in the "Backup- und Archiv-Portal".
- Install the required TSM client software. Please recognize the client compatility warnings.

Note Step 1: To activate the account in the Identity Management you have to read and accept the effective terms and conditions of the archive service.
Note Step 2: This step is not required if you are already using TSM for backup on your system (TSM Archive and Backup require the same software) or if you want to archive files on the Compute Cluster of the IT-Center.
