Delete files from a stg pool


I'm having a senior moment and can't find a way to delete a nodes files from 1 specific stg pool. In the following example, is there a way to delete just SERVER1's files from POOL2 only?

You're not having a senior moment, you can't do it. At least not easily.

You can delete a filespace, but that deletes the files in that filespace regardless in which pool they are.

Option 1:
This is the prefered method, ff you know which files are in the pool in question, go on that client and use the "delete backup" command to delete that data. Typically, we decide what data to keep or delete based on the actual files on the client, not where they are stored. Most of us don't know where the data is stored, we can find out, but we don't keep track of it. Why would we, the server tracks it for us.

Option 2:
I guess an awkward alternative would be to create a new temporary storage pool, do a MOVE NODEDATA to move the data in question to that new pool, then delete the volumes in that.

Option 3:
If you are using collocation, you could do Q NODEDATA and delete the stgpool volumes that node has data on. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL THAT THE VOLUMES DON'T CONTAIN DATA FROM OTHER NODES.
