Error description

  • During the installation of the TSM 6.1 Server on AIX 6.1
    platforms, the Deployment Engine may hang when attempting to
    perform a hardware scan.  While in the hung state, the 'ps -ef'
    command will show the wscanhw process running for an excessive
    amount of time, similar to the output below:
    .
       root 290964 565474 101 11:34:22  pts/1 65:55
       /opt/tivoli/cit/bin/wscanhw -o /tmp/collector26657.tmp -c
       /usr/ibm/common/acsi/dat/config/scanconfig.xml
    .
    The wscanhw process only hangs when run on an AIX 6.1 host with
    EMC and/or SSA disks attached (APAR IZ45154).
