Setting Up a Move Policy to Move Full Volumes

In releases 7.2 and later, it is possible to set up a move policy to move full volumes through the move policy sequences. To accomplish this, the move policy needs to have *FULL for the Duration.

Example

Move policy  . . . . . . . . . :  AAAA                                       
Home location  . . . . . . . . .  TAPMLB01     Name, *SYSPCY, *ORIGIN, F4 list
Use container  . . . . . . . . .  *NO          *YES, *NO                      
Verify moves . . . . . . . . . .  *NO          *YES, *NO                      
Calendar for working days  . . .  *ALLDAYS     Name, *ALLDAYS, F4 for list    
Calendar for move days . . . . .  *ALLDAYS     Name, *ALLDAYS, F4 for list    
Move marked for duplication . .   *NO          *NO, *YES                      
Text . . . . . . . . . . . . . .                                              
                                                                              
Type choices, press Enter.                                                    
                                                                              
  Seq    Location      Duration    Container Action                           
   10    VAULT         *FULL                                         

   20    VAULT         *EXP           

The behavior of media using the move policy named AAAA from the example above will be:

  • Full volumes are moved to the Location VAULT when media movement is performed.

  • Full volumes will remain at the Location VAULT until they expire. 

  • When any volumes expire, they are moved to the Home location of TAPMLB01
