APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • On startup the TPC-R server will attempt to resolve the
    connection names that are attached. If the SVC / V7000
    cluster names contain a subset of  characters of another
    device, the device will be marked with the name of the
    device with the superset of characters.
    This will cause problem creating new sessions that use
    the device.
    

Local fix

  • contact TPC support for workaround
    

Problem summary

  • | fix pack | 5.1.1-TIV-TPC-FP0002 - target 3Q 2013 |
    | release  | 5.2.0-TIV-TPC-FP0000 - target 4Q 2013 |

    The target dates for future fix packs do not represent a formal
    commitment by IBM. The dates are subject to change without
    notice.
    
    On startup or refresh of a device config, the TPC-R Server will
    attempt to resolve the connection names of devices that are
    attached. If the SVC / V7000 / Unified device cluster name is a
    subset of another devices cluster device name problems will
    occur. E.g. the cluster names "SVC" and "SVC_01" would
    experience this issue because the complete name "SVC" is a
    substring of the other name "SVC_01". The device will be marked
    with the name of the device with the superset of characters.
    
    Copysets cannot be added nor any functions that attempt to use
    the device. It is in essence hidden from the user.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was changed to allow names that contain subsets of
    another device names. The product can now determine the
    difference between the similarly named devices.
    

Temporary fix

  • contact TPC support for a workaround
