APAR status

  • Closed as Permanent restriction.

Error description

  • When GPFS is upgraded to 3.5 from levels lower than 3.5 and
    SELinux is used in enforcing mode the first incremental backup
    run will send both meta data and the content of all files which
    have not been excluded from backup to the TSM server. In other
    words a full backup for these files is performed, regardless
    whether an up to date copy on the TSM server exists or not.
    .
    In addition, when TSM for Spacemanagement (HSM) is used, stubs
    can not be restored any more in this context. The files are
    restored completely instead of stubs.
    .
    The reason for this is that beginning with GPFS 3.5 an ACL with
    SELinux attributes is added to each file upon it's initial
    access after the upgrade.
