Error description

  • If the  Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3.x or 6.4.x client is
    installed , the command "lppchk -m3 -l"
     reports a broken link :
     lppchk -m3 -l
    lppchk: 0504-222  Existing symbolic link at /usr/lib/libxdsm.a
     is not a link to /usr/ccs/lib/libxdsm.a.
    
    The "libxdsm.a" library,  which is  part of the AIX fileset
    "bos.rte.filesystem",  is needed by the backup archive or hsm
    client.
    
    The library was included in the 6.3 and 6.4  client packages to
    avoid making the bos.rte.filesystem a pre-requisite to
    installing the client, especially at a time when it was not
    common for the fileset to already exist on the system. However
    if the bos.rte.filesystem fileset is already installed at the
    time the backup-archive client is installed, then the lppchk
    command will display the problem message.
    
    This issue causes no operational problems other than the lppchk
    message.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:  Version 6.3 and 6.4
    running on AIX systems that have the fileset bos.rte.filesystem
    installed.
    
    Initial Impact: Low
    
    Additional Keywords:
    TSM dmapi lslpp symlink
    

Local fix

  • Ignore the broken link
