Tivoli Storage Manager Database

Updated: Oct 20, 2023

Tivoli Storage Manager saves information in the Tivoli Storage Manager database about each file, volume, or database that it backs up, archives, or migrates. This information includes the file name, file size, management class, copy group, location of the files in Tivoli Storage Manager server storage, and all other information except for the data. Data is stored in a storage pool.
