    Well we're trying to do mass upgrades and honestly using TSM for a repository just makes sense because:

  4. How to do multiple restores from the same filespace?

    Keep getting ANS1330S when we try to restore data concurrently to more than one server from the same TSM object/filespace.

    Finally solved the problem. As far as I can tell, with VTL configurations + linux, you need to apply the library changers in addition to the tape drives. This seems to allow the drives to be...

    Our setup running compressed backups (to keep from killing the network) seemed to work better on DD than ProtectTier. We only see reduction rates around 1.7 to 2.2 however, so it's not a lot per se.
