APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Problem description:
    
    If the Throttle feature is set to Throttle or Terminate for the
    Temp File Space, and the monitored free space goes below one
    of the thresholds,
    the DataPower appliance will restart and, in the process, might
    erase data on an attached persistent storage (e.g. the RAID
    disk).
    

Local fix

  • Workarounds:
    
    Do not throttle on the Temp File Space.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected are all DataPower appliances configured to use a
    persistent storage such as internal RAID or CompactFlash or
    external iSCSI or NFS.
    
    If the Throttle is set to monitor the Temporary filesystem
    and to restart when the space is low, at the moment this
    condition is met, the DataPower appliance might erase the
    attached persistent storage(s) in the restart process.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
