Someone in my company has deleted the filespace names from Tivoli. And we cannot get any restores now.
Is there any way possible to get those filespaces back in and get our data back? we lost a years worth of work. please help!

RE: Oh My GOD! Help ME!

bad thing. Restore the TSM Database from the last "correct" backup you have of it.

Maybe you loose only a few saves and not all of them.


RE: Oh My GOD! Help ME!

Do you have any instructions on how to do this?

RE: Oh My GOD! Help ME!

I hope you did the tsm db backup. If you used to make a backup as usual on tape you will do the following:

1. Stop the tsm server by entering "halt"
2. Issue the following command:

  dsmserv restore db todate=today totime=now

(explanation: TSM will automatically request the latest tape used for db backup and restore them)

If you know the volume used for backup you could even restore directly from them:

 dsmserv restore db devclass=devclass volumes=yourvol

If you did a dump of the database using the "unloaddb" command you will have to use the "loaddb" command as follows:

1. check wich deviceclass was used for
2. Check wich volumes were written
3. Stop the tsm server by issuing "halt"
4. Restore them issuing the following command:

 dsmserv loaddb devclass=devclass volumes=volume1, volume2

Hope it helps and good luck.
