Friends,

We have a Spectrum Protect Plus environment (10.1.9) where the amount of used backup storage is reduced a lot and now we want to detach some storage for reusage.
Within TSM (Spectrum Protect) this is a piece of cake, but within Plus I don't see such option to reduce the amount of available backup storage.

Does anyone knows a trick on how to reduce the amount of available backup storage in Plus? Without losing backup data of course...

Hi.
If you want to reduce vsnap storage you need to open a case with IBM. They have information how this can be done. You need to run some zpool commands. We did this with successful result.

From IBM Support.
"This procedure is not official, yet.
It is in the roadmap, but we do not know when it will be officially available."

Regards
Björn
