Changing media type on a primary pool
May 26, 2009 08:34AM
At present I have 9940 tape as my primary tape pool and T10k as my copy
tape pool. I want to convert (or change) the primary tape pool to T10k.
Does anyone know the easiest way to do this?

Thanks

You need to create a pool of that type and then insert it into the top
of your tape pools hierarchy, with corresponding updating of your Copy
Group and then policy set activiation. New data will plop into that,
and old data can be moved there as time permits.

with more recent TSM levels you can set a reclaimstgpool, set it to
the T10k pool for your 9940 pool, that will at least do some of the
data movement as part of your normal daily processing....

Create new T10k primary pool,
Set migration to new T10k primary pool
change reclaim on 9940 pool to reclaimed to T10k pool as the reclaim
pool
After a while move data from pool to pool.
