    i have to backup a lot of files every two hours.

    so i try to make a script and schedule with windows task scheduler:

    cd c:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient
    dsmc incremental -archmc=INC_BUP_2HOURLY "D:\*" -description="Inc Backup" %date%" -subdir=yes

    but there is no archmc for incremental backups and i need other retention for those files.

    thx for your help.

    In your head...
    Is there a need to have this process bind to different retention than normal nightly backups? If so perhaps creating a nodename_2hr or something to that affect with its own dsm.opt file and change what the data binds to as far as policy sets.

    Otherwise,
    I believe if you use the binding to the long term policy set and set in the dsm.opt file on the client or a client option set that paticular node is associated with you'll get the retention you are looking for.

    You should also be able to create a 2 hr schedule with enhanced schedules within TSM itself. Then you'll be able to report on the status of the backups.

    You will need to create a new management class (with different retention) in this existing policy domain and bind this node to this management class/domain.

    I suggest you take a look at this redbook from IBM, espacially chapter 9; "Policy Management", it will explain TSM way of doing what you need:

    What JeanSeb said. After you create management class, and activate the policyset, you can bind your special directory to the new management class in your dsm.opt file.

    include.backup c:\win98\system\* mybackupclass

    Also, I think you'd be best served by triggering these two-hour schedules from the TSM server. You can create one schedule that runs every two hours. Pretty easy to use.
