Hi There,

I want to ensure I am implementing the best possible strategy for TSM
Has anyone implemented this successfully as described in the
Full-Incremental Rotations Using IBM Tivoli Storage Manager field guide
from IBM.

I am using a copy storage pool , and perform a full backup weekly, and
incrementals during the week. In addition I do an archive on the last
Sunday of each month. All AIX.
Would this constitute best practice.

Another side issue - Has anyone encountered recursive backing up of linked
directories in AIX. I have a directory called websm that seems to go into
an endless loop.
Any ideas how to rid of this error with out excluding the said directory.
