Use the archmc option with the archive command to specify the available management class for your policy domain to which you want to bind your archived files and directories.
When you archive a file, you can override the assigned management class using the archmc option on the archive command or by using the web client. Overriding the management class using the web client is equivalent to using the archmc option on the archive command.
If you do not use the archmc option, the server binds archived directories to the default management class. If the default management class has no archive copy group, the server binds archived directories to the management class with the shortest retention period.
This option is valid for all UNIX and Linux® clients. The IBM Spectrum® Protect API does not support this option.
This option is valid for all Windows clients. The IBM Spectrum Protect API does not support this option.
- Specifies an available management class in the active policy set of your policy domain. This management class overrides the default management class and any include statements for the files and directories you are archiving.
