Purpose

The delete_save_sets command deletes the backup save sets for a backup job using a single or multiple job execution ID. It does not delete save sets for repository jobs.

Syntax

dsc delete_save_sets -I|job_execution_id id -S|skip_prompt

Example

dsc delete_job -I 10011 -S

Parameters

I|job_execution_id Job Execution ID
The job execution ID of the previous execution of the job.
O|override
[Optional] Flag used to delete related save sets. For example, if a Full save set is related to a Delta save set, use the override flag to also delete the Delta save set.
f|file file.xml
The file to specify multiple execution ID to delete multiple save sets. Either one of -I or -f should be present.
S|skip_prompt SkipPrompt
[Optional] Skips displaying a confirmation message before performing the command action.
u|user_authentication User
Required when security management is enabled. Supplies the command with the Viewpoint user, and triggers a password prompt for authentication.

Permissions required: DSA Job Permissions: Run and Edit.

A|abort
[Optional] Abort the current running request so the DSC does not delete the metadata. Cannot abort the deletion of save set files.
C|current
[Optional] Returns the current status of the recently executed delete save sets request.

Usage Notes

  • Delete_save_sets allows you to cleanup files and metadata when they are no longer needed. It deletes save sets and backup images from both the DSC repository and the backup solution.
  • When backups go across multiple TMSS dsc servers, the image files are not deleted if the TMSS servers use the same REMOTE_FILE_SYSTEM in the target group definition. See config_target_groups for more information.
