    Hello,

    Using tdp_r3 for db2 to move database backups and logs to TSM server.

    There are two copygroup types in TSM - "backup" and "archive". If we use ba client it depends on dsmc command - "backup" makes backups, "archive" makes archives.

    What type we get when we move data using tdp_r3 - "backup" or "archive" ?
    (I must know which TSM copygroup policy applies to tdp_r3 sent data)


    thanks,
    Vilius

    I think its the DB files go to backup and the logs go to archive, use the redbook to confirm.
    Also
    q occ SERVER_DB2
    This will show the TYPE column with backup/archive etc.

    TSM for ERP works differently from the TSM for Databases client.

    BOTH log and database backups are archives to TSM.
