Configuration best practices

When you are sizing and configuring your TSM server there are best practices you should apply to optimize it to work with the Archive Node.

When sizing and configuring the TSM server, you should consider the following factors:

The disk pool must be configured to migrate data to the tape pool (that is, the tape pool must be the NXTSTGPOOL of the disk pool). The tape pool must not be configured as a copy pool of the disk pool with simultaneous write to both pools (that is, the tape pool cannot be a COPYSTGPOOL for the disk pool). To create offline copies of the tapes containing Archive Node data, configure the TSM server with a second tape pool that is a copy pool of the tape pool used for Archive Node data.
