2013-04-07 22:04:49 16580698 9175096 (-43140) Due to the previous error, logical restore will not be attempted.

Cause

#define DSM_RC_NO_OPT_FILE 406 /* No default user configuration file*/



Answer

According to the Tivoli data protection manuals error 406 is DSM_RC_NO_OPT_FILE.


Set DSMI_CONFIG environment variable. Verify that the non-root user has read permission for the client options file specified by
DSMI_CONFIG. Otherwise dsmInit/dsmInitEx will fail with return code DSM_RC_NO_OPT_FILE (406).

For example, the following options file is not readable by a non-root user, therefore the file's permissions need to be updated:

$ ls -l $DSMI_CONFIG
-rwx------ 1 root sys 86 Oct 7 13:07 /testfsapi/callmt_nr/dsm.opt
$ su root

Password:
# chmod a+r /testfsapi/callmt_nr/dsm.opt
# exit

$ ls -l $DSMI_CONFIG
-rwxr--r-- 1 root sys 86 Oct 7 13:07 /testfsapi/callmt_nr/dsm.opt
