    TSM really can't leverage LTFS, you can look at IBM LTFS enterprise edition. It's more for using the HSM function of TSM on LTFS capable drives and media.

    Chris,

    Chris,
    When you talk "virtual" TSM instances are you talking specifically VMware or Hyper V? I'd be careful from a support standpoint there as IBM will not likely support you with issues in that...
