    Default Fastback DR Cleanup

    I'm looking for a way to cleanup my DR folders. I have 4 fastback servers which all point to one FTP server. This space is not being cleaned up. Has anyone found any documentation on how to clean up the old jobs? Is this something we have to script? Any insight on how to keep your DR hub server (is not a TSM server just FTP) clean?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    DBurress

    I created a PMR. Apparently the cleanup process should also clean your DR site as well. I belive this is happening. The issue has become more clear in that my delta file for my SQL server was growing beyond belief. The g:\ vol was keeping 1TB of space when its actual size was only 300GB (80 used).

    When signing in as technician I was able to see incremental back from January that were never deleted. These were saved in order to maintain a consistent snapshot according to support. The fix is I suppose to run weekly fulls for SQL. Since it never seems to clean up the incremental.

    Let us know how you get on with this - seems like something that could bite us all on the backside sooner or later.

    For me, running weekly fulls of SQL Databases is *exactly* what I don't want to do as it's one of the reasons for using FastBack in the first place (i.e., incremental forever without requirement for regular full).

    FB 6.1.5.2. (using FTP DR method)

    Anyone know what the answer is? Doing a test, I had 30GB of data for a FB client, and sent it to FB DR Hub.

    On FB Server, I deleted all snapshots of this client and ran cleanup. The data is removed from FB Server but still remains on FB DR Hub.

    (the account doing the FTP has rights to delete on the DR Hub)

    I opened a ticket with IBM support. Here's the answer technoted.

    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docvie...id=swg21459986

    Two incorrect items...
    1) orabr_con.txt should be orabr_conf.txt

    2)...
    For Windows 2008:
    C:\ProgramData\Tivoli\TSM\FastBack\server
    C:\ProgramData\Tivoli\TSM\FastBack\client\mirror ->> should be ...\server\mirror
