Offsite REclamation


Active Newcomer
when I perform Reclamation on CopyPool-001, TSM adds One scratch to this pool to copy 10 percent of valid data and deletes the original tape which has 90 percent of expired data. now we have one tape in CopyPool-001 which has 10 percent of valid data and 90 percent free. which is absolutely perfect.

Now when I run Backup Stgpool CopyPool-001 and TSM adds another scratch to perform storage pool backup why TSM do not use the same tape which were already added by Reclamation and has 90 percent of free space ???

all the time CopyPool-001 send 2 tapes to the vault, the one tape were added by Reclamation process and another tape were added by Storage pool backup, why?

-REuse delay is 3 days on DB and DR pools.
-NO Collocation

Is reclamation running while the backup stgpool is kicked off?
Is the copy pool tape still in the library and read/write or is the access already set to offsite?
