Re: reclaim off-site volumes
On Monday, I sent the message at the bottom of the page. I received
several suggestions, the one that I have been using is to do "move data
______". Of the 500 moves that I have done, virtually all of them have
been successful, which means that these off-site volumes have been
regenerated copies of on-site volumes. The question then is; why isn't
reclamation working when I set the reclaim=80 of a volume such as this:
Volume Name: 731529
Storage Pool Name: DISASTER_RECOVERY
Device Class Name: VAULT
Estimated Capacity (MB): 600.0
Volume Status: Filling
Pct. Reclaimable Space: 99.8
Scratch Volume?: Yes
In Error State?: No
Number of Writable Sides: 1
Number of Times Mounted: 1
Write Pass Number: 1
Approx. Date Last Written: 08/16/1997 06:45:53
Approx. Date Last Read: 08/16/1997 06:42:54
Date Became Pending:
Number of Write Errors: 0
Number of Read Errors: 0
When reclamation starts up (and every time it recycles thru the
process), it produces a message about the above volume similarily to the
message shown below?????????????
