  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • During system state backup, the TSM client leaks file handles
    while enumerating hard links for files. The leaked file handles
    will close when the TSM client shuts down. However, when the
    scheduler is run in "classic" mode (the CAD is not used to
    manage the scheduler), the number of leaked handles will
    continue to accumulate after each system state backup operation.
    Eventually this can deplete operating system resources.
    
    Versions Affected:
      Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client versions:
      - 5.4
      - 5.5
      - 6.1
      - 6.2
    
    Affected platforms:
      - Microsoft Windows Vista
      - Microsoft Windows 2008
      - Microsoft Windows 2008 R2
      - Microsoft Windows 7
    
    Initial Impact:

Local fix

  • Either of the following methods can be used to circumvent this
    problem:
      - Use the client acceptor daemon (CAD) to manage the client
        scheduler.
      - Restart the scheduler service after each backup operation
        that includes a backup of system state.

Problem conclusion

  • The backup-archive client has been fixed so that the handle
    leaks described in the APAR no longer occur.
    

Temporary fix

  • An interim fix is currently targeted for version 5.5.2.12 and
    6.1.3.3. Note that until the interim fix is actually available,
    
    this information is subject to change at the discretion of IBM.
