Kent, your questions are very good ones and you make legitimate points. My
intent was to provide an answer to the question that was asked, which was
how to change the MC. Even then, your points notwithstanding, that answer
does not work if uses more than one MC at a time. But then followed on
with an invitation to be more specific about what he wanted to do, and an
admonition against modifying MC's in this fashion. If that wasn't clear,
then I should have probably emphasized that point first and more strongly.
  :-)

As you point out, there are multiple ways to deal with this sort of thing,
but rather than speculate or write at length on the topic, I think it
better to understand the real need first.
Best regards,

Andy

Re: Management Classes






Andy, if the clients/filesystems overlap with the other schedules, won't
this lead to excessive/unintended management class rebinding?
If they don't overlap, it would make more sense to just define a new
domain.  If they do overlap, it might be safer to configure an alternate
node name for each client, for use with the special schedules - but this
can lead to timeline continuity issues that will complicate future
point-in-time restores.   Would it be safer to follow your plan, but just
toggle the existing MC's COPYGROUP settings and do the ACTIVATE POLICYSET,
instead of toggling between two MC's?

Re: Management Classes






Why not define admin schedules that change the default management class
prior to the scheduled backup (create server macros that run ASSIGN
DEFMGMTCLASS followed by ACTIVATE POLICYSET, then schedule the macros)?

If that does not provide sufficient granularity, then it would help to
have more specific information on what you wish to do, and, just as
important, why. Normally I would recommend against flip-flopping
management classes in this fashion, at least not without knowing a lot
more about your scenario.

Management Classes






I have looked everywhere but been unable to find a solution to my needs.
I have am running the TSM server 5.1.8 and I have one policy domain with
several management classes. There is a default class that data goes to
but I want the data from selected schedules to go to a separate
management class, and in turn a separate tape pool. Both this and the
default MC are incremental backups.

Are there any options I should be employing the use of?

Many thanks in advance,

Sam Rudland
