Using Spectrum Protect with IBM Cloud Object


Hi All,

I am in the process of setting up TSM to work with Cloud Object Storage (We are using CMOD) and I have some questions. First, I have never done this before and I hope I am headed in the right direction. I have setup storage pools to work with TSM/Centera, but never IBM Cloud Object. I analyzed the steps that I usually use and I think I know where I need to define the ICOS information, but I am not sure what info I will need, nor the syntax/parameters. Below are the steps I use, with the areas I am questioning in bold:

disable sessions
define devclass icosclass ...??? (Usually HLA= servername, location of .pea file, etc..) mincapacity=4G mountlimit=20 (other options
define stgpool icospool icosclass
define domain icospd desc="IBM Cloud Object Storage Policy Domain"
define policy set icospd icosps desc="IBM Cloud Object Storage Policy Set"
define mgtclass icospd icosps icosmg desc="IBM Cloud Object Storage Management Class"
define copygroup icospd icosps icosmg standard type=archive destination=icospool retinit=creation retver=nolimit
assign defmg icospd icosps icosmg
validate pol icospd icosps
activate pol icospd icosps
register node icosod ondemand domain=icospd
enable sessions

validate- query stgpool icos f=s

Thanks in advance!!!
