TSM ::: the object expiration

Hi,

we have just installed IBM Tivoli as backup solution. It works fine but we have a question.

The TSM objects expiration, must it be done by sp_deletesmobj? or, must be done by TSM policy?

Thank you so much.

Regards.

    Hi Ganimeda,

    sp_deletesmobj is used for deleting specified backup objects from the TSM.

    TSM policy requires some API calls which has the constructs for:

    • Policy domain

    • Policy set

    • Management class

    • Copy group – defines the expiration or rete

    • Hi,

      IBM tell us that to delete old o expired backup session we must use sp_deletesmobj... so it's so unnice becase from DBACOCKPIT I know that is not possibile to set variable as getdata() - 7 days or any other like that.

      I don't know how I can delete oldest backup.

      regards.
