    Hi:

    As I know, to backup with SAP/Oracle DP I have to use BRTools with Backint or RMAN interface. Also, I read that RMAN interface manage the retention policy, not TSM.

    My question is: Regardless using Backint or RMAN interface, How do I setup VERE, RETE, VERD, RETO?

    My retention needs of my SAP production environment is 5 years.

    Appreciate your help and details about this

    Regards

    Oscar

    Define an archive copy group for the management class. If the retention control will be performed at the Tivoli Storage Manager server, specify RETVER=<days> for the number of days for the archive copy group. If retention control will be performed at the Tivoli Storage Manager for ERP level, specify RETVER=nolimit.

    Yes. If the retention control is performed by Tivoli Storage Manager for ERP, set up the MAX_VERSIONS parameter.
