Error description

  • Error Description:
    The server can report incorrect PVU values using 'select * from
    pvuestimate_details'
    for some newer versions of Intel processors that have a version
    in their model number (for example, E5-2620 v2).
    This occurs when the IBM_ProcessorValueUnitTable.xml does not
    contain an exact match for newer versions of the processor,
    causing the server to use
    default PVU values instead of values appropriate to the
    processor model.
    
    Initial Impact: Medium
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Spectrum Protect versions
    affected:
    Server  7.1.x and higher, and 8.1.x and higher on all supported
    platforms
    
    Keywords:
    TSM PVU intel processors version TS000848157
