Error description

  • The Tivoli Storage Manager V6 Information Center includes a
    topic named "Reducing the size of the database." See:
    http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/tsminfo/v6r3/index.jsp?topic=%
    2Fcom.ibm.itsm.srv.doc%2Ft_db_size_reduce.html
    
    If this procedure is followed, the size of the database is not
    reduced. To reduce database size, the DB2 ALTER TABLESPACE
    command should be used, as described in the Releasing Space to
    the Operating System section of  Technote 1452146:
    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21452146
    If this doesn't release enough space, follow the instructions
    in the OffLine Reorganization section of the Technote, then
    follow the instructions in the Releasing Space to the Operating
    System section. Also please note that if your server was
    originally formatted with Tivoli Storage Manager Server version
    6.1, there are limitations to reducing the size of the database
    as documented in the Technote.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager V6 servers on all supported platforms.
    
    Additional L2 info:
    The steps in the information center should be replaced with the
    procedure that is described in the technote.
    
    Initial Impact:
    Low
