Configuring a thin reclamation process for a business entity

You can create a thin reclamation process for a selected business entity using the Veritas Operations Manager console. The reclamation process reclaims the thin reclaimable LUNs that are used by VxFS file systems, and those file systems are part of the selected business entity.

To configure a thin reclamation process for a business entity

  1. In the Veritas Operations Manager console, click Solutions.
  2. Under Veritas SF Thin Reclamation, click Create Reclamation Processes.
  3. In the Configure Reclamation Process wizard panel, enter the reclamation process name in the Process Name and select Business Entity (File System) for Reclaim By option. After you have entered the required information, click Next.

    See Configure thin reclamation process options.

  4. In the Select Business Entity panel, Veritas Operations Manager displays business entities with Storage Foundation thin reclaimable LUNs. Select the desired business entity and click Next.

    See Select business entity options.

  5. In the Select Scheduled Run Options panel, select the Run this Reclamation Process automatically check box and select the frequency at which you want to run this reclamation. The Run this Reclamation Process automatically check box is optional. Click Next.

    See Schedule thin reclamation process.

  6. The Reclamation Process Summary panel provides you with the details about the configured reclamation process. For example, business entity details, reclaimable Veritas File Systems, reclaimable LUNs, process schedule, and the start date for the process.

    See Thin reclamation process summary.

  7. Select the Run Reclamation Now check box if you want to run the reclamation process immediately after you save it. By default, it is selected.
