Error description

  • When a VM filespace representing the backups of a VM guest
    as stored by the Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environment
    - Dataprotection for VMware on the server is renamed on the
    server with the command :
    RENAME FILESPACE
    then the backups for this VM guest will not be visible
    anymore from the client.
    
    Renaming the above type of filespace is not supported.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Server Versions Affected:
    All versions, all platforms in combination with any
    version of windows or Linux based Tivoli Storage Manager
    for Virtual Environment - Dataprotection for VMware
    data stored on the server.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics :
    
    The above described issue was seen when the target VM guest
    was to be deleted and reused with the same VM name.
    The intent of renaming the filespace was to keep the data
    for some time as an archive before deleting it when the
    new VM guest became operational.
    The recommended way to keep VMware guests' backups with a
    different retention time is to perform these backups with a
    different target node name with the backup data bound to an
    appropriate management class.
    
    Initial Impact: low
    Additional Keywords: filespace VM backups rename GUI TDP4VE
    

Local fix

  • Rename the filespace back to its original name to regain
    access to this data from the client.
