    Default quoting backslashes in dsmadmc

    I'm trying to delete a Windows filespace using dsmadmc on Linux, and I get:

    tsm: PELICAN>delete filespace DSRV1.MSI \\dsrv1\f$
    ANR0852E DELETE FILESPACE: No matching file spaces found for node DSRV1.MSI.

    It exists:

    tsm: PELICAN>q filespace DSRV1.MSI
    ...
    DSRV1.MSI \\dsrv1\f$ 4 WinNT NTFS Yes 1,907,727.0 36.3
    ...

    I've tried putting it in single quotes, double quotes, backslashing the dollar sign, backslashing the backslashes, and quite a few combinations thereof. What am I missing here?

    try:
    del fi DSRV1.MSI 4 nametype=fsid
    If Microsoft is the answer, I want my problem back!

    Yeah as DOMINO said, I recommend you always use the FSID rather than the actual FS name. It's a lot easier to run the command.

    Think

    delete filespace DSRV1.MSI \\dsrv1\f$ NAMEType=UNIcode

    would have also worked...
