Error description

  • Virtual volumes and dedup are not compatible. In previous TSM
    versions, Virtual volumes were never aggregated, but when dedup
    analyzes the bitfile, it is converted to an aggregate. When
    reclamation runs thereafter, and moves the dedup'ed object to a
    new volume, it is given a new bitfile number. When the virtual
    volume code is run, it does not find the original bitfile
    number.
    The following message is found in the actlog:
    ANR9999D_1402482949 imComputeObjSize(imarqry.c:3172) Thread<45>:
    Unable to find bitfile xxxxx
    To avoid running into this issue, do not store virtual volumes
    in dedup pools.
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Reporting and Monitoring 6.1 using virtual volumes and
    dedup
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
