ANR9999D "Standalone Mode" Errors during Tivoli Storage Manager Database Restore

Technote (troubleshooting)


During a database restore, "ANR9999D smexec.c(904): Session NOT allowed in standalone mode." reported multiple times.


Client nodes attempting to contact server while in the process of restoring the database

Resolving the problem

These errors are informational messages stating that a node or nodes are attempting to contact the Tivoli Storage Manager server to establish a session. The server denies these sessions during the database restore and issues the above message to indicate the refusal to open a session while in standalone mode (which is the state the server is running under during restore db). The Tivoli Storage Manager database integrity is not affected and the restore continues.
