How can a retention time be less than browse time?
October 17, 2017 10:59AM
Hi,

The man page for nsrmm -e says:

"... It is possible for a clone instance to have a retention time less
than browse time. However, the
              save set retention time may not be set such that the save
set would become recyclable while it is still browsable. ..."

What would be a legit case where this occurs? Can this possibly happen
without manual intervention?


For example, if I have a save set with a save time of 2017-10-30, a
browse time of 2017-11-30 and a retention time of 2018-10-30 then
how could I change the retention time to be less than the browse time
without violating the second sentence above?

But if instead, the save set's status is recoverable -- let's say that I
waited until 2017-12-01 -- then the browse time will still be 2017-11-30
even though the status is no longer browsable, and then I could, say,
change the retention time to 2017-11-01 without violation since the
save set is not browsable? Otherwise, if it still is then the browse
time would also change to 2017-11-01? Is that what I'm supposed to infer?

From the last part for -e:

"If the save set is browsable and this change results in changing the
retention  time of the save set to a value less than the browse time,
the browse time will be modified to be same as the retention time of the
save set. If the save set is not brows-able, the browse time will
not modified even if the retention time is less than browse time."

I guess? Hmm ...

Stop worrying about this. Browse time is history from 9.x.
