Error description

  • Expiration will generate messages similar to the following which
    show orphaned bitfiles:
    .
    ANR0165I Inventory file expiration started processing for node
    BACKUP, filespace \\MACHINE\c$, copygroup REGULAR and object
    type FILE
    ANR9999D_1164624868 ImDeleteBitfile(imutil.c:8915) Thread<100>:
    Bitfile id 20213247 not found.
    ANR9999D Thread<100> issued message 9999 from:
    ANR9999D Thread<100>  0x0000000000bee072 OutDiagToCons+0x0x142
    .
    where thread 100 could be any thread and bitfile 20213247 could
    be any bitfile. It is likely this will be generated for multiple
    bitfiles. The fix will include a utility within expiration which
    automatically cleans up these orphaned bitfiles.
    .
    L2 Diagnostics:
    .
    The orphaned bitfiles can be verified and located by using DB2
    commands to search the af_segments, backup_objects and
    bf_aggregated_bitfiles tables. Once this has been done, the
    entries can be removed manually, however this process can be
    intensive if there are a large number of orphans. If there are a
    signifcant number of orphans, the utility built into expiration
    (in the future release) should be used.
