Been running TSM (ADSM) more than 10 years, more than 20 TSM servers,
DB sizes from 6 GB to 250 GB and have yet to "reorg" ( ... shudder)
one of them.

John

Did a restore/upgradedb/unload/load onto a new AIX box while going from
TSM 5.1 -> 5.3 . The size of the database before was 460 GB(95% used). I
trimmed 131 GB off my db by doing the unload/load. Now this procedure
was never done before on this db and it has been running since 1990 from
what I understand.
