To all...
I created an RFE to affect File Spaces and Expiration.  The feature would cause 
expiration processing to be skipped for a file space that has been selected.

It's RFE ID 33395 if you care to review and vote.

Briefly, the idea is to immediately respond to a situation in which we cannot 
allow Expiration Processing to delete information that would otherwise be 
deleted.  This would be in response to a "Litigation Hold" demand from a legal 
issue at hand.  I've had three LitHold events in the past 24 months; they're 
not much fun and I'm not in the court room, just the TSM Server Admin.

Allowing a "LitigationHold=Yes" would avoid expiration on the File Space.

When the court case is lifted, simply revert to ""LitigationHold=No".  The next 
Expiration process would then begin the delete process as is normal.

The feature would avoid the complexity of assigning a "no expire" management 
class to the node and trying to later revert to a more typical class.

Please take a look at the RFE, and cast a vote if you feel it's a valuable
