Error description

  • A version 6.1 or 6.2 Tivoli Storage Manager server might fail
    to complete dsmserv format with these errors:
    ANR9999D_0295505432 RdbCreateDatabase(rdbdb.c:1230) Thread<1>:

    ANR0162W Supplemental database diagnostic information:
    -1652:**No State Information Available (-2)**:-1652 (**No
    Other Information Available (35)**).
    ANR2678E Server database format failed.
    This problem might occur during these activities:
    o Installing a new Tivoli Storage Manager server
    o Creating a new instance on a machine which has an existing
      Tivoli Storage Manager server
    o Restoring the database of a Tivoli Storage Manager server
    This problem is caused by DB2 apar IC66990 and IC67528 which
    describes a problem with stopping the DB2 database instance if
    the db2sysc process id is 8 digits long.
    For example:
    # ps -ef | grep db2sysc
    tsminst1 15597692 41418940 4 Nov 08 - 2149:43 db2sysc 0
    In this case the db2sysc process id is 15597692 which is
    8 digits long. This process id might not be able to be
    found since the db2sysc process is not running when the
    dsmserv format command is issued. If other processes on
    the system are 8 digits long, then it is possible that
    the new db2sysc process id which will be created by the
    dsmserv format command will also be 8 digits.
    If this problem exists and the db2sysc process id is
    known to be shorter than 8 digits, then this APAR is
    not related to the problem.
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    6.1 and 6.2 on all platforms

Local fix

  • Tivoli Storage Manager maintenance also includes maintenance
    to the underlying DB2 database. The Tivoli Storage Manager
    maintenance levels which will include the DB2 fixes is still
    to be determined.
    Rebooting the system has been known to solve this. Reducing
    activity on the system after a reboot, or some other action to
    prevent process IDs from growing to 8 digits might solve this.
