behavior of existing data when excluding a vm
May 30, 2018 07:59AM
Tsm server v7.1.7.1, client 7.1.6.4.
Unsure of TSM for VE version.
I need to freeze the backups of a VM in their current state as of today. I can exclude the vm from backup. However, will this act like an exclude and cause all backups to become inactive?
If so, how to stop backing up a VM but leave its existing backups alone.

I don't know how to freeze existing backups. I rename the server in vCenter and run a backup using the new name. Rename to original after the backup.. This will preserve the new backup.

I usually do a Backup Set of the node.
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSGSG7_7.1.0/com.ibm.itsm.srv.doc/c_mngdata_mkclibckupsets.html

I do this for all legal holds. And it's a standalone set of tape or some other media type.
