Hi All,

10x for the fast reply, indeed I have one filespace of 24TB, im familiar
with the export/import node when the TSM
Servers are in the same site, or even in the same LAN, since those 2 sites
are connected in a VPN Connection,
And I try to export some data, and its take ages, and I wanted to be
creative :-),
I guess I don't have any other option, to ship the TSM Server and my TS3200
Library to my Main Site, and do all the
Process in the Main Site, and I guess from my Tests its more or less 6-7TB
Per Day, until next week it will be finished :-)

10x for your fast reply

If your node has more than one filespace I suggest you seriously
consider export via filespace (server-to-server) rather than via node.
If there is a problem you will be better able to try again without
resending 'stuff' from a filespace that has already been sent.
We do a lot of exports (server-to-server) and have found the filespace
method works better. We are currently in the process of upgrading from
Server V5.3 to V5.5 so don't have re-startable export available yet (new
in V5.5).
Export works well, but you need to have the infrastructure to support

Good luck!

Hi To All,

I got 2 TSM Servers, and I need to Export Node from one server to

I have a connection between the 2 Sites, and everything is working
great, my problem is that I need to Export 24TB of data,

In the beginning I thought that I can export the Node to the other
server without Data, and send to volumes by mail to the other site and
checkin the volumes into the library,

But its not work in this way, on the other hand I thought to create a
Backup set, or event export the node to Tapes, but I don't have enough
volumes because the library is full,

And I also have a problem because I don't have an operators on the site,
everything is done remotely.

Is  there any way to move the Client meta Data to the other server and
then send the volumes from one site to another ?

Or is there any way to export the node data to the second site ?
