Re: restore directly from copy pool tapes
What we have done is -
Purchased the DR component of TSM, which a somewhat automated script
to recover your TSM server and components. It also switches your offsite
tapes to onsite, destroys the onsite versions. You can then recover your
ap servers from TSM as you would normally.

Subject: restore directly from copy pool tapes
I'm working on a disaster recovery scenario where our TSM server (AIX)
library (3584)that has 90 LTO tapes in tape pools is destroyed and
servers are destroyed. We have approx. 85 copy pool tapes off site.
Our thought is to recreate the TSM server via mksysb, restore the TSM
etc. Then get several of our critical other systems up and restore
by using the copy pool tapes and then recreate the tapes in the tape
the tape library.
How does one set up the recreated TSM server so that it does not think
tape pool tapes are in the tape library ?
How does one restore from copy pool tapes ?
Are we going about this in a realistic way ?
