Need to restore TSM to DRP Site, but only have a one drive library

Need to restore TSM to DRP Site, but only have a one drive library

Need to restore TSM to DRP Site, but only have a one drive library

Hi guys,

I need some guidance in order to accomplish a TSM Server 5.5 restore on DRP Site in different hardware. I Have DB being copied to the DRP Server, devconfig and Volhist. Both environments are configured with the same TSM server version, same Operating System (Windows) but the tape libraries are different, i have a TS3100 with 2 LTO 5 Drives on Production and a TS3200 with One LTO 5 Drive on DRP.

The plan is to restore a SAP Server in the DRP Site, but for that i need to restore TSM database and only then go for the server.

After restoring the database, setting TSM devices, what would be my next steps?
Can i restore directly from offsite tapes?
Do i need to restore tape pool first? How can i do this with only one drive? Is it possible?

Please feel free to ask for some information that you consider relevant, i would be more much appreciated for any help.

Best regards

Francisco Batista
