RMAN / TDPO - How to EXPIRE backups?
Anyone know how to expire backups in TDPO? What parameters need to be altered? No matter what I specify in the TSM expiration Policy / Management class, my backup tapes never seem to get deleted/reused..and thus my backups never EXPIRE?! They always appear as "AVAILABLE" (when I 'crosscheck').
Note : I'm NOT looking to set retention policies in RMAN and then make them OBSOLETE and then delete these OBSOLETE backups. What I'm looking for is - that TSM automatically delete backups (or reuse tapes) that are older than a certain period of time. And then when I issue a "Crosscheck backup", I expect that RMAN will mark these backups that were not found in the MML as "EXPIRED".
Jodie - you seem to use TDPO at your place. Any ideas?
