delete node on TSM 5.5

Hi ...

Checking our old TSM 5.5 we see there're some nodes which does not exists, but before delete the node, I'm not sure if deleting the node it delete scheduler or other entries inside TSM like its SYSBACK configuration...

I'm using ISC to manage our TSM but I would like to know the right command on TSM-CLI.

Thanks..

Hi,

before you can remove a node, you must delete all backup and archive file spaces that belong to that node (del filespace <nodename> *).
To check if there are any schedules on those nodes you can do a "q assoc": it will output all associations with tsm schedules; to cancel them out you must do a "delete association domain_name schedule_name node_name")

At last you may remove the node:
remove node node_name

hopet this helps

Max, what do you mean by delete all backups? The historical backup of this node inside TSM?

I mean, this command will erase all archives/backups on tapes?

del filespace NODE2DELETE *

yes ... if you want to remove the node ... i assumed you did not need to maintain the backup for it.
Should you want to keep the backups, you must keep the node as well.

no you can't. The requisite to remove a node is to delete all of its filespaces.
