Create and activate the domain policy

Contributors netapp-madkat

You must create a domain policy and then activate it to configure the TSM server to save data sent from the Archive Node.

  1. Create a domain policy.

    copy domain standard tsm-domain

  2. If you are not using an existing management class, enter one of the following:

    define policyset tsm-domain standard

    define mgmtclass tsm-domain standard default

    default is the default management class for the deployment.

  3. Create a copygroup to the appropriate storage pool. Enter (on one line):

    define copygroup tsm-domain standard default type=archive destination=SGWSDiskPool retinit=event retmin=0 retver=0

    default is the default Management Class for the Archive Node. The values of retinit, retmin, and retver have been chosen to reflect the retention behavior currently used by the Archive Node

    Note Do not set retinit to retinit=create. Setting retinit=create blocks the Archive Node from deleting content since retention events are used to remove content from the TSM server.
  4. Assign the management class to be the default.

    assign defmgmtclass tsm-domain standard default

  5. Set the new policy set as active.

    activate policyset tsm-domain standard

    Ignore the “no backup copy group” warning that appears when you enter the activate command.

  6. Register a node to use the new policy set on the TSM server. On the TSM server, enter (on one line):

    register node arc-user arc-password passexp=0 domain=tsm-domain MAXNUMMP=number-of-sessions

    arc-user and arc-password are same client node name and password as you define on the Archive Node, and the value of MAXNUMMP is set to the number of tape drives reserved for Archive Node store sessions.

    Note By default, registering a node creates an administrative user ID with client owner authority, with the password defined for the node.
