IC87129: REMOTE LOCATION OCCUPANCY STATISTICS MIGHT BE RESET WHEN DEFINED QUOTA LIMIT IS EXCEEDED.
Closed as program error.
When using scheduled email backups and defining a too small quota limit on the remote location, it is possible to reach a condition where the occupancy statistics are reset and do not reflect the real occupancy anymore. This can be due to the designed behaviour difference between standard versioned file backups and scheduled email backups : Standard Remote Backup Email Backup ---------------------- ------------ Files are purged when Files are not purged to the remotepool quota is make room for more files. reached to make room for more files. Customer/L2 Diagnostics : This example shows the problem : 1. Define a quota limit of 5 MB on the remote location 2. Configure Tivoli Data Protection for Files to protect a file A.pst of 1 MB 3. Scheduled mail replication to the remote location copies the file A.pst without problem. 4. Define 3 new files of 1 MB : B.pst, C.pst, D.pst 5. Again, scheduled replication copies these files and current remote occupancy is still ok : 4 MB < quota of 5 MB 6. Define a new file E.pst of 1 MB and backup also another small file : x.txt 8. Tivoli Data Protection for Files will not be able to purge an e-mail file to get 20% below the defined quota limit of 5 MB. The statistics will be reset and will report only the occupancy for file x.txt Versions Affected: Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files 3.1 Fastback for Workstations 6.x Initial Impact: Low Additional Keywords: cdp fb4w FSB4WS continuous data protection for files fastback for workstations
1. Define the Maximum space for backups large enough to contain all the intended mail file backups in addition to all the other files intended for backup. Please have a look at this technical document : http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21259559 2. Then to get back to normal : Open a command line prompt, change directory to the install directory, run the command "fpa sync execute=1", and wait for it to finish.
Remote location occupancy statistics might be r eset when defined quota limit is exceeded.
