Error description

  • The 6.1.3.1 TSM Linux x86 client incorectly resolves the name
    of a TSM FastBack iSCSI volume if the volume is not mounted
    on the root directory, and then cannot back up that volume to
    the TSM server.
    For example, '/media/I' is incorrectly resolved by the Linux
    client due to the second /. If there is only one / in the
    name, such as when the volume is mounted on the root directory,
    the name resolves correctly and is backed up correctly.
    

Local fix

  • mount the iSCSI volume you wish to back up on the root directory
