APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • Poor performance can be see when using "*" in a directory name.
    This cause the TSM Server to search using a "Like" clause as the
    server can not distinguish between the character "*" and the
    wildcard of  *
    .
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics (if applicable)
    None
    .
    *NOTE*
    1. An asterisk in a file spec is documented and used as a
    wildcard
    2. files and directories having * in their names can be backed
       up and restored yet there might be performance problems due
     to longer query processing time.
    .
    Platforms affected:
    TSM 6.1 Clients, all platforms
    .
    Initial Impact: low
    .
    Additional Keywords: backup query verb filespec wildcard
    asterick
