Error description

  • When configure DR configuration through TSM in FastBack
    Manager, space is allowed to be input in <Branch name> field
    in DR configuration tab in fastback release 6181. This would
    cause the TSM repository have space in its name after DR is
    successfully finished. When mount this repository, FastBack
    Mount can not access a repository with space in its name, so
    it can not  mount the related snapshots of this repository.
    
    FastBack Mount can successfully mount a repository without space
     in <Branch name> field.
    
    This problem occurs on all windows platform.
    
    When mount a TSM repository with space in its name, the
    FAST_BACK_MOUNT.sf would display the error information. Here is
    an example of using space test as Branch name:

Problem conclusion

  • Background:
    FastBack Mount can not access the TSM repository that with
    blank space in its name. When configure 'DR in TSM' in <DR
    Configuration>Tab of FastBack Manager 6.1.8.1, if a blank
    space is input in 'Branch name'  field, DR in TSM can be
    successfully performed. But FastBack Mount can not mount the
    related snapshots as the repository name has a blank space.
    Fix:
    IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Fastback Manager has been fixed to
    correct this problem. Forbid blank space input in "Branch
    name" field  of <DR Configuration> tab in FastBack Manager.
    Once the blank space is input in 'branch name' field, a
    warning screen will occur to forbid this input, and the
    message displays like this: The text field "Branch name:" can
    not contain blank space and the following characters:
    \/*?<>|;^?.:,
