Error description

  • After an upgrade installation of a Tivoli Storage Manager
    Windows client, a customized tsmjbbd.ini configuration file
    might be replaced.
    
    The client install package, under control of Windows Microsoft
    Installer (MSI), installs the example tsmjbbd.ini file if the
    creation date for the current tsmjbbd.ini file is greater than
    or equal to the modification date of the current tsmjbbd.ini
    file. One example of when this can happen is if the customized
    tsmjbbd.ini file (the target) is copied from another location
    (the source). As a result, the creation date for the target
    tsmjbbd.ini file is the date it was copied, while the
    modification date remains the same as the source tsmjbbd.ini
    file.
    
    As an example, the following attributes for a copied tsmjbbd.ini
    are reported before the upgrade installation:
    File name: tsmjbbd.ini
     8.3 name:
    
         File size: 18461

         Written:  Friday 25 Jan 2008 13:04:10.0151
    
    After completion of the installation, tsmjbbd.ini file is
    replaced with the example tsmjbbd.ini file from the installation
    package:
    
    File name: tsmjbbd.ini
     8.3 name:
    
         File size: 9911

Local fix

  • Take backup copies of your customized configuration files and
    replace the file installed,
    or make sure the "date written" attribute is newer than the
    creation timestamp.
