    Hey Mike,

    thanks for the link. Linux (or any ux/ix environment) is out of the question, we are windows only shop (and no exceptions can be made). What I like about your link is that it is...

    Hi,

    I'd kind of like to avoid replication for now. The source server as you say must be online for the restore to work - which is absolutely fine for me and is "the design" anyway. It is a...

    Hi Harry,

    that sounds very good, thank you. One more question, regarding replication you say "using this approach you can restore the data directly from the target server in the case of a...
  4. Share a Library via Ethernet (no SAN connection)

    Hey,

    is it possible to have a library accessed by multiple TSM servers without them having a FC-connection to the library? Specifically I am planning for two libraries that are supposed to be...
  5. Hey, well as you said yourself at the end of...

    Hey,

    well as you said yourself at the end of your posting - what I am talking about is HA. Not DR and certainly not monitoring. I am looking for a solution where - if something goes wrong, a...
  6. TSM as single point of failure in productive environments - transactional logging

    Hey guys,

    I'd really like some input on this and how you do this. Now what I have here seems like a pretty standard thing - we have our Hyper-V environment on a SAN storage hosting our productive...

    Hey guys. Just to let you know, I could not check in the tapes from the IE station because nothing happened. I let
    the library check the volumes into the storage slots and used label libvol ML6020...

    Checking in additional tapes

    Hello guys,

    I am sort of unexperienced with TSM in regards of importing tapes and such, so excuse this dummy question. I've set up an ML6020
    with 60 tapes that I've checked into TSM using label...
  9. Show data bound to specific management class?

    Hi guys,

    I'm in the process of moving stuff to an new TSM server and want to use the opportunity to clean up some stuff. Specifically I'd like
    to know if I can do without some of the legacy...

    DRM strategy - will this work?

    Hey!

    We have a TSM Server and two NAS devices for storage in our branch offices, the TSM server in branch offices is always a virtual machine (Hyper-V). Now in case the virtual machine or the...

    I kind of doubt that. Using the filer's deduplication means, that TSM knows nothing about it, right. Copying or migrating data to a tape pool (via TSM that is) for example would indeed require a form...
  12. Well, I ran into another problem. Since data and...

    Well, I ran into another problem. Since data and meta have different copy locations in our setup, I was not able to change the management class at all. I noticed this during the full backup, I got an...
  13. TDPSQL - Rebind to another Management Class?

    Hello!

    Currently I have three management classes (SQLDATA, SQLLOG, SQLMETA) with certain retentions, all SQL Servers use them. I would like to lower the retention for our test SQL Servers to save...
  14. Damn you're fast! I can understand this is not...

    Damn you're fast! I can understand this is not recommended, I don't want to be responsible for lost data due to a hash collision. So I won't do this on my productive machines. Basically I was just...

    Thanks for that info, I did not know or expect that. What about environments where no copy pools are used but dedup is wanted, what's the switch to enable dedube on a primary pool?

    *edit*...
  16. Duduplication works only on copy pools ?!

    Hey guys,

    using a TSM 6.3 server (on Windows 2008 R2) I have defined several sequential access storage pools and sequential copy pools. Both are deduped. I know it might not be the best idea to...

    SQL Restore into + apply logs

    Hi guys,

    one question. Using TDP SQL 5.2.1.6 (I know, not my choice here ...) on an older SQL 2005 server I need to restore a
    database to a specific point in time - as a copy! I know that's done...

    pbarnard - Do you use individual volumes or a cluster shared volume?

    In our case we do not use cluster shared volumes so maybe I can be of help. We don't use TSM's Hyper-V backup method either...

    Hm I like your idea a lot better than mine. I've not been using TSM's "hyper-v backup" method by the way. Some virtual machines, for whatever reason, seem to have some sort of problem with VSS - in...

    By the way - my current "working theory" is this:

    A logical "file" may be spread over several "DISK" volumes. This might be intentional for performance reasons (can anybody confirm?!) and will...

    You can also check if there are "pending" volumes and delete them to get a few free tapes, less risk of forgetting to set the reusedelay again. ;)

    Well you could createa a temporary, disk-based storage pool, move the data to it and when you are done move the data back to the correct pool(s).

    chad_small : the DISK pool currently spans 475 volumes at 40G each, the FILE devclasses are set to 50G volumes. Right now I have not moved more than two of the DISK pool volumes to the FILE pool...
  24. "Move data" from DISK to FILE pool - increased diskspace consumption by 25%?!

    Hello!

    Our primary filelevel backup storagepool (called “filesrv”) is of DISK devclass and spans its volumes over several disk shelves, 18 TB altogether, 40 GB per volume. Now I’ve added a new,...
  25. Change the "location on disk" for volumes (replacing storage + merging partitions)

    Hello

    The storage in our TSM server is split into many partitions, too many for my taste. The storage is about to be replaced (for reasons of capacity extension) and I would very much like to use...
  26. Import / Export Node - Mapping of StgPools?

    Hey guys,

    when exporting a node and importing it on a new server, is mapping between old and new storage pools done by name only? On the "old" server the primary B2D storagepool is of devtype...

    What exactly do you mean? If they are excluded why is there a need to delete them? Anyways, there is "dsmc delete backup" to do this. However BACKELete must be enabled or the node cannot delete its...
  28. Exclude folder that's been backed up - what happens?

    Hey folks,

    assume I have C:\data\ with a bunch of files which has been backed up exactly once. Before the next backup the directory is excluded - what will happen?

    1) Folder is deleted from...

    Well I mistyped that, its a 6.1 client - but then again that is not supported either. ;)

    Hey!

    Okay, here's the situation. One of our locations is running a TSM 5.5 storing on two NAS boxes. The TSM instance files (like the volhist and such) are stored on one of these.

  34. "Fake" randomization for server-prompted scheduling?

    I generally think that server-prompted mode is nicer than client polling, although I have to admit that is a bit of a gut feeling. I like the idea of not having to mess with clients if I...
