Error description

  • An IBM Spectrum Protect server might start CONTAINER
    DEFRAGMENTATION/MOVE CONTAINER processes while in maintenance
    mode.
    
    The following would be logged in the actlog:
    05/04/18   11:36:18      ANR3415I The server is in maintenance
    mode.
    ..
    05/04/18   12:59:45      ANR4392I CONTAINER DEFRAGMENTATION
                              started processing stgp
                              ool <CONTAINERPOOL>. Containers are
                              only using 91.73% of 331860
                              .05 GB due to fragmentation.
    ..
    05/04/18   12:59:46      ANR0984I Process 3 for Move Container
                              (Automatic) started
                              in the BACKGROUND at 12:59:46.
                              (PROCESS: 3)
    
    In the APAR case the MOVE CONTAINER was started by a container
    defragmentation process which both should be prevented in
    maintenance mode.
    
      IBM Spectrum Protect Versions Affected: 7.1.3 and newer, 8.1
    and newer on all supported platforms.
    
      Initial Impact: Low
