A banking customer's TS7740 was unable to replicate the tape backup data to the DR data center via the current grid network. The IBM support engineer had created a PMR with Severity 1 because the tape library is supporting the customer's production environment. Six hours after the PMR was created, IBM Level 2 support requested to change the Severity Level to 2, even though the problem had not been resolved. Based on IBM guidelines, why would this problem need to be reduced to Severity 2?
Severity 1 only applies to Production Failure

Auto set by the system

What is limited by Performance Increments in the TS7700?
Host Write only
After a requirements analysis including the use of the Batch Magic tool, it has been determined that a TS7740 four-way grid is the most appropriate solution, with two clusters in each of two sites. The customer wants to have four copies of the data, (one in each cluster), but also to minimize the data sent over the network between the sites. What is the best way to setup the TS7740 Virtualization Engines to achieve this?
Setup cluster families
A customer wants to double the capacity and throughput capability of the existing TS3510 Tape Library. The available free space in the data center is limited so 324 frames must be included in the proposal. Which fact must the technical specialist take into account in order to meet the customer requirements?
324 frames do not provide the option for adding tape drives
According to the IBM TS7700 Performance white paper, why does it show that a T67720 has only a sustained I/O performance and a TS7740 has a sustained AND peak I/O performance?
The TS7740 has to do pre-migration tasks at a certain point of operation
Which is the key benefit to be gained by adding the optional HA feature to a TS3SOO Tape Library?

A customer wants to encrypt data written to tape drives. A competitor offers an encryption solution that encrypts the data before sending to the tape drives for compression. IBM wants to offer IBM TS1140 tape drives using the built-in encryption feature. Which competitive advantage does the IBM solution provide?
TheTS1140compresses data before encrypting in order to obtain the best compression ratio
What is the key advantage of the IBM TS7720 over the EMO DLm?
Supports bi-directional replication in a grid
In a TS7740 two-way grid Cluster 0 is the production site and Cluster I is the remote DR site. The scratch volume category for the production site is 0012 and DR site's scratch volume category is 0022. Before a DR test is started, several DR system updates must be in place to protect the production scratch volumes from being allocated during the test. Assuming Selective Write Protect is enabled, which of the following is one step that must be taken?
