IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases:
Data Protection for Microsoft SQL Server Version 5, Release 1, Level 5.0

ACO5716W An error was encountered with Tivoli Storage Manager API initialization, rc = 610.
The TDP for SQL GUI will fail to open with the above error.
The return code of 610 means "DSM_RC_NLS_OPEN_TXT", a failure to open a message repository. In this case, a file is missing from the API and TDP for SQL directories called dscenu.txt - in some instances, TDP for SQL will be missing this file when installed.
The file "dscenu.txt" will also be found in the baclient directory (by default, c:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\Baclient) - copying this file into the API directory (by default, c:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\API) and into the TDP for SQL directory (by default, c:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\TDPSql) will allow the TDP for SQL GUI to see the message repository and open properly.
