How can I find out what files are inside a cloud-container?


Active Newcomer
We have inherited an already running TSM/HSM setup, with a large tape storage pool, and a smaller cloud-container type storage pool.

We understand some files have previously been migrated to the cloud storage pool, but we don't know what.
We don't have much previous documentation to go on.

Is there any way to list out what files are stored in a particular cloud-container?
q content doesn't seem to have any options for listing cloud-containers (although I'm happy to be proved wrong on that).

Can we list the files inside


Active Newcomer
Ok, so got "server error" the first 2 times trying to post this.
Now I see it worked, and I have managed to post the same thing 3 times.
Please delete, thanks.

Just to confirm, still trying to find and answer to this question.

We have found you can run "q occupancy stg=cloudstgpoolname" and get number of files, filespace names, and space used.

Also have tried "select * from occupancy where STGPOOL_NAME='cloudstgpoolname', which really just give simlar info to the above.

Surely it must be possible to further list the actual files stored therein?

Any suggestions? Happy to read doco or links if anyone at least has a lead.
