Hello,
I have 3 tapes called rep001, rep002 and rep003. These tapes were used in the past in a backupset that no longer exists.

The storage pool and node associated with that backupset are no longer existing neither.

These 3 tapes appear in a query volhistory:
Date/Time: 29/05/07 13:28:30
Volume Type: BACKUPSET
Backup Series:
Backup Operation:
Volume Seq: 1
Device Class: LTO3C_CLASS
Volume Name: REP001
Volume Location:
Command: generate backupset mn_projects_proxy testRep /projects/rep46 devc=lto3c_class scratch=no volume=rep001,rep002 ret=nolimit
Database Backup ID High:
Database Backup ID LOW:
Database Backup Home Position:
Database Backup HLA:
Database Backup LLA:
Database Backup Total Data Bytes (MB) :
Database Backup total Log Bytes (MB) :
Database Backup Block Num High:
Database Backup Block Num Low:
Database Backup Stream Id:
Database Backup Volume Sequence for Stream:


I cannot delete this volumes since they are listed in the volhistory as a backupset part. I cannot delete the backupset as it no longer exists.

How can I delete this tapes from the volhistory?

Thank you
Felip M

As I commented before: no, the backupset does no longer exist.

Unfortunatelly I already tried that:

Code:
tsm: TSM2>delete volhistory todate=05/29/2007 type=all     

Do you wish to proceed? (Yes (Y)/No (N)) y
ANR2467I DELETE VOLHISTORY: 0 sequential volume history entries were successfully deleted.
As told here: http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGSG7_7.1.6/srv.reference/r_cmd_volhistory_delete.html , delete volhistory cannot be used for backupsets, you must use this http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGSG7_7.1.6/srv.reference/r_cmd_backupset_delete.html , but my backupset does not exist.

I am on TSM7.1.6, Linux, and my current installation comes from an import of an older TSM 5.4 one.
