IC85830: FASTBACK MANAGER MAY NOT SHOW ALL THE VOLUMES FOR THE FASTBACK CLIENT IN THE GUI.
Closed as duplicate of another APAR.
When a FastBack Client on an Exchange Server connects to the FastBack Server, some of it's volumes may not be displayed as available in the Storage Pool or in the Client Groups menu. In the file XpressClients.txt, on the FastBack Server, you may see entries like this: * F:\,0000dead The volume that this corresponds to is the one that is not showing up in the FastBack Manager GUI. Also, this volume's signature is successfully read and sent to the server from the client: FAST_BACK_CLIENT040.sf: ORI_GetNextPhysicalDisk: Send Disk [PhysicalDrive2] signature [0xabcd1234] to XpressServer ... ORI_GetNextVolume: send volume [F:\] signature [0xefgh5678] to XpressServer And the FAST_BACK_SERVER040.sf log shows successful receipt of the volume: AGI_MarkLocalPhysicalDisksPerAgent: Got a LOCAL physical disk from agent [FBCLIENT]-->[PhysicalDrive2] [abcd1234], DAS accessed ... AGI_VolumeReply: Got a volume from agent [FBCLIENT]-->[F:\] [efgh5678] The Server logs do not show why the volume is being registered as "* F:\,0000dead". Additional Keywords: Volumes not available;
