Error description

  • If the TSM Linux x86 6.1.3.1 client is being used with the
    TSM FastBack product, the root filesystem and other filesystems
    are backed up correctly in the snapshot to the FastBack server,
    even if the FastBack policy definition combines the root file-
    system with other filesystems. However, backups to the TSM
    Server using the FastBack integration archive proxy function
    may not back up the root filesystem with that same policy
    definition, though the backup says it was successful.
    The filesystem statistics message at the end will not
    show the root filesystem as being backed up, though.
    
    If the FastBack policy definition keeps the root filesystem
    and volume separate from other filesystems and volumes, as is
    recommended, then the archive proxy to the TSM server backs up
    the root filesystem successfully.
    

Local fix

  • Define FastBack policy to keep the root filesystem and volume
    separate from other filesystems and volumes.
