This is my third post in as many days - thanks for all the help so far!
I have just 2 more questions:
1. We are migrating from GroupWise 6 to MS Exchange soon. We have a user base
of appx. 500 and will be implementing a KVS storage solution to handle mails
Does anyone have any tips/links/whitepapers/case studies on best practise in
backing up Exchange, KVS or both with TSM (and possibly HSM)? What retention
parameters are advisable?
2. I have just deleted filespaces for 12 nodes that are no longer operating on
our network. The occupied size summed appx. 1.5Tb but the filespace deletion
process seemed uncannily quick.
The command I issued for each node's filespace was:
DEL FILESP <NODE_NAME> * TYPE=ANY DATA=ANY
Once issued I input 'Q PRO' to check what was happening and was shown that TSM
was deleting objects.
My question is: How and when will all of this space be reclaimed from both the
onsite and offsite tapes as the whole purpose of deleting these filespaces was
not only to purge a stack of data we no longer needed but, ultimately, to free
up slots in our LTO library?
Many thanks all.
