Hi,

Here's the scenario:
One TSM (TSM1) version 6.3 connected to an OLD IBM tape robot with more than 60 nodes.
New TSM (TSM2) version 6.3 connected to a new VTL protectier with 30 nodes (Nodes are different from TSM1)

What we want? Move nodes from TSM1 to TSM2 in order to discontinue the OLD IBM robot.
Is there any hint to do this? Any experience from experts? :)
Thanks

Hi,
You can move nodes and their data from one server to the other by means of the EXPORT NODE and IMPORT NODE commands via compatible sequential media which you obviously don't have. On the other hand you can connect both servers by means of the DEFINE SERVER commands to then use EXPORT NODE with the TOSERVER option to transfer the definitions and data directly via network. Obviously the servers must be able to "see" each other, and there should be a sufficient amount of bandwidth available.
Please consult the results of HELP DEFINE SERVER, HELP EXPORT NODE and HELP IMPORT NODE and have a look at this:

Well, if you don't need historical backups it's of course sufficient to register the nodes on the new server and have the respective opt/sys files point to that server. Sorry if this was already self-evident to you!
