Error description

  • Virtual volumes, look like sequential media volumes on the
    source server, but are stored as archive files on a target
    server.  QUERY STGP may incorrectly report Pct Util for storage
    pools using virtual volumes.  For example the "Pct Util" may
    indicate 100% even when "Number of Scratch Volumes Used" is less
    than "Maximum Scratch Volumes Allowed".
    IBM Spectrum Protect Versions Affected:
    All IBM Spectrum Protect servers 8.1 or higher
    Initial Impact: Low
    Additional Keywords:
    TSM Tivoli Storage Manager 121147 server to server virtual
    volumes Q STGP
