i'am currently testing KVS VaultStore for Fileservers.
My findings so far are
- replacing the original file by a stubfile changes the reparse
point of the file, so TSM is will cause a backup of this file by doing a
recall of the file during a full-incremental backup,
even the original file was backuped during former backups.
- a "solution" for that is to do a incremental-by-date, using this
method no recall and backup of already migrated files which were already
but only doing incremental-by-date means to loose the expiration
of deleted files, e.g. and even a file is renamed it will not be backed up
cause this will not change the modified date.

Backing up MS Exchange / KVS + Deleting FileSpaces
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 archived-by-date.
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.
