    Default disable restore

    We want to avoid that during maintenance, for instance on our library ,some restore requests were launched. Is there a possibility to disable restore sessions without having to disable all sessions. There is an optin for dsmserv.opt but then you have to stop/start TSM.
    Restores are initiated by the client and i suppose there are options to disable, but we want to disable it on the server side.

    thanks for your time

    I don't think you can disable just restores very easily.

    I suppose you could just take all your paths offline, then even if someone does try and do a restore no tape library activity will happen..

    Cheers

    thanks for your message.

    In our last case (intervention) the whole library was down and also the paths, when powered up, the restores came in. I think buffered somewhere. The problem was that not everything was ok for mounting.

    You could issue a : "disable sessions client"
    That would prevent client sessions and still let administrative ones pass through.
