Pinned topic TSM Newbie issue with "pct logical = 100.0"

‏2012-10-19T16:53:31Z |
Hi all!

Here's my small problem...

I have just installed my server and 1 client. I have a CentOS 6.3 with TSM Server 6.3. My client is a Windows 2008 R2 with the TSM client on it.
My backup device is a IBM TS3100 with a autochanger and the barcode reader. Everything is working like a charm

The Library currently have only 5 tapes (LTO5) which I have added to a pool called LTO_POOL_01.

I ran a test backup from the Windows client, selecting only 2 files. One really small (1kb) and another a little bigger (500mb).

Today I wanted to run another backup, but this time a little bigger to check the time it will take and stuff like that, but I realized that the backup fails stating that the Pct Logical is at 100%.

What this stands for? How can I lower that percentage? I will paste some info where (hope is everything you need, and sorry for the long email)
