Need to ensure EXPIRE INVENTORY won't run on server start

    Hi group,

    I need to figure out a way to start TSM without running the EXPIRE INVENTORY process on startup. Long story short, we lost a lot of backups from our primary server due to a malfunctioning client causing the server to think the data had been deleted so all the inventory expired. The malfunctioning client just suffered a catastrophic failure, so I need to get the data back. I suspect the data may exist on the second server as the server was decommissioned, but being the backup is so old I don't want the expire process to just trash all our data again.

    Bottom line is, how do I start TSM with the assurance that EXPIRE INVENTORY will *not* run on start?

    Thanks,
    Kai

    We use to disable the Admin schedule of Expiration process as active=no once the the server is up, we will make this as active.

    Option 1:
    If the server is at 7.1.3 or newer, just start the server in maintenance mode:
    dsmserv maintenance
    Go to Common

    Option 2: Any version, add these lines in dsmserv.opt:
    Code:
    EXPINTERVAL 0
    DISABLESCHEDS YES

    Do what you need to do, then restart the server normally without the added options in dsmserv.opt
