Tsm/Spectrum protect filenames
« on: May 13, 2022, 04:04:11 AM »
Hi, have a little problem with files archived to spectrum protect. Cant find any way to list files from filespace. Does spectrum convert filenames to some encoded format or what.
Database is showing the filespace and the filename, but canr acces to that anyway. Not via backup archive command line or via backup archive gui. By the way is the backup archive gui supposed to work that way like file explorer if i connect to spesific node, it only shows local drives, not long term archive(centera), or actually it shows that, but doesnt do anything if i open the tree view.
Thanks in advance
and yes tsm-windows environment 8.13 version

Hi.  :)

It's not really clear what you're trying to do.  Are you investigating a problem with CMOD?  You shouldn't normally need to worry about the inner workings of CMOD unless there's a problem.

CMOD uses the archive facility of TSM / Spectrum Protect, not the backup facility.

What's the end goal here?

hi, actually in advance  :) just wondering why it is not possible to list the files or even retrieve files from tsm. Case if some misfunction delete happeness. if archiveprotection is on, then the file stays in tsm allthough its deleted from od i guess. Or have i understood something wrong. Actually in quite similar content manager software something like this happened. In tsm-database the path to file is shown, but they could not import files from tsm.

Ah.  So you're just exploring.  :)

If you want to ensure that you can still get files from TSM/SP (for auditing reliability) then you can simply do retrievals from CMOD for data that you know has been moved to TSM/SP.

If you're trying to do the reverse, you can query a filespace, and then compare the list of document objects returned to the Application Group's database tables.

If you want to do a project that does this in a more automated fashion, please reach out to me by phone or eMail.
