Question About Active Data Pools
Geoffrey Huntley recently asked me what situation would an Active Data pool be useful? To be honest, I couldn't think of a good situation. Since I don't use an Active Data Pool I thought I would throw the question out to our fellow readers to get some feedback as to how you might be using ADPs. My biggest reason for not using them was the PIT restore issue. You can read my full gripe here. Basically if TSM wont utilize it when doing a PIT then what's the benefit? I'd say more than half, if not 75%, my restores are from older dates.
