Error description

  • Error Description: It is possible to receive the following error
    during tape operations.
    
    ANR9999D_3962351595 AsUpdateEmptyVol(asvol.c:3389) Thread<3672>:
    Attempt to overwrite existing encryption key (lengths =
    72,48,72), for volume 17959
    
    This only occurs during a small window when the volume using AME
    tape encryption is scheduled for deletion and when it becomes
    empty.  If the volume has not been fully deleted and it is
    requested to be mounted by another transaction, the error will
    occur.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected: 5.4, 5.5, 6.1, 6.2
    
    Initial Impact: Medium
    
    Additional Keywords: TSM, empty, tape, volumes, volume, encrypt,
    encryption, migration, reclamation, expiration
    

Local fix

  • Since this only occurs with empty volumes, the volume can be
    safely deleted.
