Error description

  • A file archived using event-based retention on a retention
    protected server can be deleted prior to expiration, even if
    the event has not occurred.  Event-based retention is
    specified by RETINIT (Retention Initiation) being set to
    EVENT.  Files can only be deleted when both the RETVER (Retain
    Version) and the RETMIN (Minimum Retention) number of days has
    elapsed since the file was created.  Files can be deleted
    using the Tivoli Storage Manager backup archive command line
    client DELETE ARCHIVE command or using similar capability in
    the graphical user interface or application programming
    interface.  Files may also be deleted using the Tivoli Storage
    Manager server commands DELETE FILESPACE and DELETE VOLUME.
    Note that the server expiration process will NOT delete files
    until all retention criteria are met.
    
    For example, consider a copygroup with RETINIT=EVENT,
    RETVER=30, and RETMIN=90, meaning files are to be kept for 30
    days after the event occurs or 90 days after the file is
    created, whichever is longer.  After 90 days has elapsed since
    the file was created, the file can be deleted, even if the
    event has not occurred.
    

Local fix

  • Do not attempt to delete retention protected archive objects
    prior to expiration.  For example, you can use the UPDATE NODE
    <nodename> ARCHDELETE=NO command to prevent the client from
    being able to delete archive files.
