Error description

  • On Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 machines with the default
    system state writers installed, the 6.1.2 and 6.1.3 Windows
    clients may perform full system state backups even if no files
    changed that would normally warrant such a backup.
    
    1. Perform a full system state backup on Windows 7 or Windows
    2008 R2 with default system writers
    2. Immediately perform another system state backup
    On occasion, the second system state backup will be a full one
    
    'ANR9998W imbkins.c duplicate entry found' in the TSM server
    ACTLOG can be another symptom of this issue.
    
    While this APAR also occurs on the 6.2.0 Windows clients,
    it does not cause a full system state backup because of the new
    functionality that backs up only changed system or boot files
    during system state backups in the 6.2 Windows clients.
    
    The TSM client's behavior is not a defect but is
    a limitation in applying Windows 2008 and Windows Vista
    system state backup behavior to the new operating
    systems and their new default system writers.
    The design needs to be updated to take that into account.
