StorNext: How to Change the Setting of the PERCENT_FULL_TO_MIGRATE Environment Variable
 

Issue:
The PERCENT_FULL_TO_MIGRATE environment variable is the percentage value used to check against to determine if a medium is full enough to be migrated.  Its default value is 99.9%. This article shows how to change this value.

Action:
To change the setting, perform the following steps on the primary MDC (here, we're changing the value to 95):

  1. vi /usr/adic/TSM/config/fs_sysparm_override
  2. Add the following entry: PERCENT_FULL_TO_MIGRATE=95;
  3. /usr/adic/bin/adic_control stop TSM
  4. /usr/adic/bin/adic_control start TSM

On the secondary MDC, make the changes to fs_sysparm_override, and it will pick up the changes the next time TSM starts on it.

No need for other manual intervention. Make the changes, restart TSM, and let StorNext handle the move to migrate class.
