Hello experts,

I have a problem with my IBM TSM Server. One of my disk pool contains 3 HDD on my server (disk F, G and K) . Unfortunately, one of the HDD is full (G:).
I want to know how to migrate some of the volumes of the full disk to the other discs (F & K)

So, are these physical HDDs and not RAIDsets?

As the old saying goes "if I was going there I wouldn't be starting from here"

If these are individual HDDs and not RAIDsets then I think you need to rethink your backup policies as your data seems to be at risk. It looks like F:, G:, H:, I:, J: & K: ought to be in a RAIDset

No, they are actually volumes from a disk array.

Hi,
you need to operate on TSM server.

1) q vol
you will know the path and volumes that TSM has written on G

2) "move data" of those volumes to another disk (F: and/or K:)

3) check on G:\ filesystem if there is any TSM volume

hope this helps

So why not stripe them into one big volume?

Actually I want to move data within the same disk pool ( I have many disks on that storage pool), but the move data option only allow me to move data to other storage pools.

Hi,
you can do that: you can move data on the same or another storage pool but it must be a primary storage pool.
this is from the guide:
>>-MOVe Data--volume_name--+-----------------------+------------>
                           '-STGpool--=--pool_name-'

STGpool
   Specifies the primary storage pool to which you want to move files
   (the target storage pool). This parameter is optional and applies
   only to moving data from primary storage pool volumes. If you do not
   specify a value for this parameter, files are moved to other volumes
   within the same storage pool.

hope this helps
