Jonathan could you please provide the version of Scale you are running, and
if possible what line 1427 is in the version of mmbackup.sh that is on the
node where the problem occurred?

 I upgraded the TSM client for security reasons to 8.1.10 from 8.1.3 last
 week. It would now appear that my scheduled mmbackup is not running, and
 trying by hand gives

 [root at tsm ~]# mmbackup dssgfs -s /opt/mmbackup
 mmbackup: Backup of /gpfs begins at Thu Aug 6 10:53:26 BST 2020.
 /usr/lpp/mmfs/bin/mmbackup: line 1427: -: more tokens expected

 What gives?
