Automatically clean up migration volumes and the migration control data set MCDS. Stkrage references to original tapes with references to alternate tapes. Space management is the DFSMShsm program function that you use to ensure that your customers have space available on DASD volumes to allocate new data sets or to extend old ones.
DFSMShsm Storage Administration Guide
Deletes all eligible expired backup versions from all backup volumes. However, the daily backup volume used to contain these manually backed up versions does not necessarily correspond to the day in the backup cycle when DFSMShsm created the backup version.
Backup function Backup is the process of copying a data set from a level 0 or administratoon ML1 volume to daily backup volume. Aggregate backup and recovery support ABARSwhich describes the command-driven functions that back up and recover a user-defined group aggregate group of data sets.
Space management of SMS-managed storagedescribes the tasks to be performed and the results of processing for space management of data sets managed by the storage management subsystem SMS. The data sets must meet eligibility criteria and must be on DFSMShsm-managed volumes that have been designated for automatic backup.
The purpose of backup is to have copies of data sets in case something happens to the original data sets. Instead, the daily backup volume corresponds to the day in the backup cycle that DFSMShsm moved the backup version from its temporary location on an ML1 volume to a daily backup volume. Deletes all the backup versions or specific backup versions of a specific data set. It contains examples of the commands needed to perform the tasks, descriptions of the processing that DFSMShsm performs, and examples of the guidd of that processing.
Backup is the process of copying a data set from a level 0 or an ML1 volume to daily backup volume. Recover a pool of volumes from the fast replication backup versions on DASD. You can make the copies available by making daily incremental backup copies of changed data sets, storagee periodic dump copies of the DFSMShsm-managed and ML1 volumes, making aggregate backup copies of data efsmshsm that your operation will need if your installation is damaged, and making fast replication backup versions for sets of storage groups.
When DFSMShsm needs another daily backup volume, it chooses an unassigned daily backup volume before it chooses an unassigned backup volume. You can use FRBACKUP to dump an existing fast replication backup version, or when no backup version exists, create a fast replication backup version and dump it to tape.
Allow your customers to issue commands to recover their own data sets. Each dump copy in a gide is associated with a different dump class, which specifies how the dump copy is gude be managed.
DFSMShsm Storage Administration Guide
Fast replication function Fast replication uses volume-level fast replication to create backup versions for sets of storage groups. Recall migrated data sets to level 0 volumes by command. Spill backup volumes contain older backup versions of data sets. Use the following commands to maintain and recover the control data sets and the DFSMShsm address space.
DFSMShsm Storage Administration Reference
DFSMShsm uses unassigned volumes whenever it needs more daily or spill backup volumes. This is known as incremental backup.
DFSMShsm allows from one to five dump copies to be made concurrently for any one full-volume dump. Creates a backup version of a specific data set. Restore a volume from a full-volume dump. Availability management of non-SMS-managed storagewhich describes the tasks to be performed and the results of processing for availability management guiide data sets not managed by SMS. Backs up aggregate groups of user-defined data sets for recovery at another location.
By command, recover user data sets or data sets of an application to their original system environment at another computer site. Automatically or by command, create a dump copy of a fast replication DASD backup version By command, recover volumes that have a fast replication backup version. Data recovery scenariosdescribes real-life examples of data loss and recovery situations. Requests that DFSMShsm back up eligible data sets on one or more volumes, in one or more storage groups, or administgation all primary volumes; or that it back up the control data sets.
IBM z/OS DFSMShsm Storage Administration (SC)
Changes the number of backup versions maintained and the frequency of creating backup versions for a non-SMS-managed data set. The difference between dump and backup is that the dump function backs up the entire allocated space on a volume, whereas the DFSMShsm backup function backs up individual data sets.
Other commands can also run for a long time. storwge
Creates a fast replication backup version for each volume in a specified copy pool. It can also be one volume in and multiple dump copies out. DFSMShsm automatically chooses the more recent copy of the data set if gguide allow users to perform data set restores see Controlling restoring of individual data sets from dump tapes.
Space management proceduresdescribes procedures for starting and stopping space management under varying conditions. Fast replication target volumes contain the fast replication backup copies of DFSMShsm-managed volumes. Tape spill volumes also receive all valid backup versions of data sets when a tape backup volume is recycled. Each guode full-volume dump of a volume, regardless of the number of dump copies, is a generation.
Restore a volume from a full-volume dump and update the volume from later incremental backup versions. Also causes the data set backup switchtapes action to occur immediately.
DFSMShsm creates these backup versions during the backup of a level 0 dfsmshs, or during the backup of migrated data sets. In addition to the activities that cause the DFSMShsm program to perform its space management and availability management functions, certain other activities maintain the security and efficiency of DFSMShsm itself.
You admonistration dump different groups of volumes on different days with different periods for the number of days between dumps. Storagee dump copy is a complete image of the dumped volume, not just an incremental backup of selected data sets.
The fast replication backup versions can be dumped to tape. This copy is called a backup version.
