APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When invoked via the Admin Center, the 'Create Server Instance'
    wizard may over-write, or fail to properly update, the
    /etc/inittab file on Linux platforms.  If the option to
    automatically start the TSM Server is selected, an attempt is
    made to create an entry for the rc.dsmserv script in the
    /etc/inittab file.  In some instances, this attempted update can
    result in the /etc/inittab file being over-written, partially
    written or not updated at all, which may prevent the TSM Server
    or other system processes from being started automatically after
    a reboot.
    
    Platforms affected:
    TSM 6.x Servers on Linux
    
    Additional Keywords:
    zz61 zz62 administration isc init reboot restart
    

Local fix

  • A backup copy of the /etc/inittab file (/etc/inittab.bak) is
    made prior to updating/modifying the contents of this file.  If
    necessary, rename the /etc/inittab.bak file as /etc/inittab to
    recover from this problem.
