Possible cause for communication errors is library manager and library client machines were not powered down properly.

Resolving the problem

Communication errors can be observed in a LANFREE environment if the Tivoli Storage Manager Library Manager and/or Library Client if the machines are not powered down properly:

Library Manager:

    ANR8938E Initialization failed for Shared library LIBNAME; will retry within 5 minute(s). 
Library Client:
