Hi, You could configure a new DataMover to handle that VM. In the preview, is the order alphabetical? If so, can you rename the VM? Marc...

Hi All Thanks for the input on my recent query about 7 Year VM backups. I'll let you know when I decide something. Moving on.. TSM Server 22.214.171.1240 AIX, Datamovers and Storage Agents on Redhat, writing to Protectier VTL, TSM for VE 7.1.1/2 hybrid. We can't use the VMware plugin because of separation of duties concerns, so we edit the DOMAIN.VMFULL lines in the dsm.sys stanzas. VMs have a range of different sizes that all back up on the same schedule and we'd prefer not to split this up. The execution order of the VM backups is determined by TSM for VE, somehow, and can be seen when a backup vm -preview is run. There are some large VMs that take quite a while to back up, but unfortunately run late in the execution order, so we overrun our backup window. Changing the order of the VMs in the DOMAIN.VMFULL statement does not influence execution order. Is there any way to make the big ones run first?
