APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The following snapshot mount command can result in
    following incorrect error:
    
    mount -v jfs2 -o snapshot /dev/<snap_lv> /<snap_mnt_pnt>
    
    The CLiC library (libclic.a) is not available. Install
    clic.rte and run
    'efsenable -a'.
    =================================================
    The check for the libclic.a is not necessary for a
    snapshot mount and
    should not be done. The problem causes access to
    incorrect data which if
    is a certain value can cause error message.  So this
    problem is only seen
    on some machines and not others.
    

Local fix

  • user could follow error directions and install Clic
    library
    as work around but I am not sure that works in every
    case.
