    Hi all,

    I'll try to explain better my problem starting from my environment:

    - we have 2 HPC cluster, for example C1 and C2;
    - on C1 is mounted a GPFS file system ( for example FS1 ) managed by HSM;
    - on C2 is mounted a GPFS file system ( for example FS2 ) managed by HSM;
    - FS1 and FS2 data have been managed, until today, by the same TSM server (v.5.5).

    Now, I would like to do this:
    - create a new TSM server and some new TSM clients ( using a more recent and supported version );
    - continue to manage FS1 data (resident and already migrated data) using old TSM server;
    - start managing FS2 data (resident and already migrated data on old TSM server) using new TSM client and server.

    PROBLEM: FS2 file system is about 171TB and 400TB (of FS2 data) have already been migrated using old TSM client and server.

    How can I "move" FS2 HSM managed data from old TSM server to the new one?
    I would like to avoid recalling all 400TB ( little by little ) and migrate them again using the new server.
    Someone could help me?!

    Thanks again.
