This document describes how to enable a standard dCache installation to interact with a Tertiary Storage System. In this description we assume that
- every dCache disk pool is connected to only one TSS instance.
- all dCache disk pools are connected to the same TSS instance.
- the dCache instance has not yet been populated with data, or only with a negligible amount of files.
In general, not all pools need to be configured to interact with the same Tertiary Storage System or with a storage system at all. Furthermore pools can be configured to have more than one Tertiary Storage System attached, but all those cases are not in the scope of the document.
