Export/Import Filespace Names
Running some exports of Windows clients, directly to another TSM server, I decided to run one without exporting systemstate. So I used the FSID parameter in the EXPORT command to just export the drives C and D. (FSID=2,3)
On the source server, the filespaces are named like \\clientname\c$ and \\clientname\d$.
On the target, it named them \\clientname\c1 and \\clientname\d1.
The only difference in this client and previous ones, is that I chose specific filespaces to export, instead of the entire node.
What is its reason for naming the imported filespaces differently?

I just tried the same thing with a windows host and using fsid from 5.5.4 to 6.3 TSM servers and it worked ok and kept c$
No clues in the actlog as to why this happened ?

I can't remember but I must have started the export then stopped it and deleted the filespaces and started again.
I noticed yesterday, if you create a filespace then delete it, the TSM server keeps a record of that name and FSID, though you cannot query it. So if you try to rename "C1" to "C$" after it's created, it errors, telling you "C$" already exists, though you have no way of seeing it. Also, the FSID is taken by that same "orphaned" filespace.
So say you have 3 filespaces..........systemsstate, C$, and D$, with FSIDs of 1,2,3. If you delete filespaces C$ and D$ and let them create again, they will get FSID of 4 and 5. And apparently, they will get a name of C1 and D1.

Apparently my previous post also isn't always the case.
Today I am exporting 3 nodes.............filespace names \\server\c$ and \\server\d$ and FSIDs of 2 and 3. On the target server, it has created filespace names of \\server\c1 and \\server\d1 and FSIDs of 4 and 5.
But also creates c$ and d$, with FSIDs of 2 and 3.
Q FILE shows all of them. c$ and c1 are equal in size, while d$ and d1 are equal in size. The export is done, and all of those filespaces exist, so am deleting 4 and 5. Does this make sense? Are these c1 and d1 just temp files that will be deleted at some point without my intervention?
Q OCC does NOT show all of them. It only shows c1 and d1.
