    Hi Sonu,

    Are you working as an administrator for TSM or are you more of a consultant & implementation role. TSM has mainly two exams depending on your role as below:

    IBM Certified Deployment Professional – Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1:
    This exam is great for consultants & if you are working among the deployment team at an IBM Business Partner.

    IBM Certified Administrator – Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1: Is what you should attempt if you are working as a TSM administrator.

    In regards of study materials, unfortunately you will have to take the course to get the course material. Though the TSM 6.1 redbooks which is online can help you do just fine. Below are few of these documents

    Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 Technical Guide

    Certification Study Guide Series: Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1

    I hope this help & feel free to let me know if you require any further help.
