You are right not worry about "dsmc sched" as dsmcad will call dsmc 
sched and also control the webclient portion so you can just drop that line.

Probably a nasty habit from I picked up from the past throwing it in 

### tsm-client.service ###

Description=Tivoly Storage Manager Client

Hum that unit file looks a bit odd to me and does not work with TSM 6.3 
on F16 atleast not here anywho the IBM guys/gal will probably come up 
eventually with the official and "correct" unit for their client when 
RHEL7 gets released and maybe stop polluting 64bit installs with 
dependency's on i386 but as you probably already know if wishes were 
horses we would all be eating steak...
