Questions on using RMAN to backup a RAC database with TSM

I have a new 11G RAC set-up to play with!

We use TSM to do our backups and RMAN. I know that TSM associates backups with the client node from which they came.

a) Where is the best place to run rman from? One of the RAC nodes? Or a third-party "application" server.

b) What sort of TSM issues would we face, if the machine we made the backups from failed, when it comes to restore and recovery? I assume that if we backed up using node1 and then tried a restore of an archivelog file from node2, we would need to make TSM think that node2 was node1 for it to find the backup.

Thanks for any comments.
