20

Password Security
• Customizable password restrictions
• Administrator may set system-wide minimum password length.
• New command
– SET MINPWLENGTH
• Force password reset
• Administrator may force client or administrator to change password at
next login.
– FORCEPWRESET=YES|NO
– UPDATE NODE or UPDATE ADMIN
– REGISTER NODE or REGISTER ADMIN

Single Drive Reclamation Example


Reclaim storage pool
• Enables data to be reclaimed within the hierarchy.
• Must be sequential access media.
Has the pool being reclaimed as its NEXT storage pool.

Move Data by Node


The MOVE NODEDATA operation may appear to be incomplete
for a number of reasons. And example of one way:
1. The move node data operation is started
MOVE NODEDATA bob FROMSTG=stgpoola
TOSTG=stgpoolb
2. The following MOVE DATA is started
MOVE DATA vol3 STGPOOL=stgpoola

At the start, the move node operation determines that the


VOL1, VOL2 and VOL3 are volumes that have data for node
BOB and queues those volumes onto a list to process.
However, by the time the move node data operation actually
starts to process VOL3, all of BOB’s data in VOL3 may have
been moved to another volume, due to the MOVE DATA
operation, and thus would not be available for the MOVE
NODEDATA operation.

Library Configuration Topics


• Tape Devices
• Terminology
• How Storage Manager Uses Sequential Access Devices
• Process for Configuring a Tape Library
82

Tape Devices
• IBM Tivoli Storage Manager supports more than 300 tape
and optical devices.
• Check the supported device list.
• Tape devices are referred to as sequential access devices.

www.tivoli.com/support/storage_mgr/tivolimain.html
83

Terminology
• Library
• A device that organizes and holds one or more tape drives, one or more
tape volumes, and an optional robotic mechanism.
• Drive
• A hardware device capable of performing operations on a specific type of
sequential media.
• Device Class
• Represents a device type which defines the tape media used in the library.
