configuring TSM and testing the config is a real PITA…

21 Jan

just to remember how to test if a certain directory and its files are included in the backup using the TSM commandline interface:

./dsmc preview backup -console /path/to/dir/

delete one or more files from your backup (NOTE: the quotes in the second command are important, otherwise bash will expand the pattern and produce a list of files, which will confuse the TSM-client):

./dsmc delete backup /backups/mysql/mysqldump-complete-2010-01-20-1823.sql.gz
./dsmc delete backup ‘/backups/mysql/*.gz’
