sbtsmlist -r fails ANS1245E (RC122)
Backups fail BMR0041E backup already in progress. When trying to remove the backup with:
ANS1245E (RC122) The file has an unknown format
Tivoli Storage Manager Client API return code 122 is: 0122 E: DSM_RC_UNKNOWN_FORMAT The file has an unknown format.
A common cause is Tivoli Storage Manager Client API version is downlevel from the API version used to start the backup.
Resolving the problem
Upgrade Tivoli Storage Manager Client and API to a later version.
For example, in one case customer had upgraded sysback from 6.1.2 to 6.1.3 and TSM API from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199. They were able to successfully remove the backup to Tivoli Storage Manager by upgrading Tivoli Storage Manager client to 6.2.4.
Tivoli Storage Manager client is available at the FTP site here:
