    I have been told by our legal department that for the near future we cannot delete anything. Our previous retention setting were set to keep five versions for 30 days. I want to change this setting to 2555 days or 7 years, in addition we cannot expire data either. What impact is this going to have on DRM and what other settings should I look into modifying? Is there a more efficient method to retain data for 7 years?

    My TSM server code is 5.5.5 running on Windows 2008.

    Bigger TSM database - no impact on DRM except more tapes to track.

    Look at Archive

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am pretty new to TSM and how it works, so I am looking for some guidance on proper configuration. It seems the impact will be minimal. Can a primary storage pool be dumped to an archive pool?

    You set it up! Remember - it does what you tell it to. You create the rules for which files gets archived.
