Error description

  • Backup image of a volume with "/dev/" in the path will switch to
    using static image backup.
    
    On AIX, using volume called
    /volab/cdef/dev/ghij noting "/dev/" in the path, the backup
    image command reports:
    
    
    Image backup of volume '/volab/cdef/dev/ghij'
    
    0516-306 lslv: Unable to find  ab/cdef/dev/ghij in the Device
    
            Configuration Database.
    
    0516-306 lslv: Unable to find  ab/cdef/dev/ghij in the Device
    
            Configuration Database.
    
    Unable to take a JFS2 snapshot for volume
    '/volab/cdef/dev/ghij'.
    
    Operation will be performed without using a snapshot.
    
    The backup image is still successful using after it switches to
    static image backup.
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Client 5.5, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4 on all
    supported UNIX clients
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
    
    Additional Keywords:
    TSM zz61 zz62 zz63 zz64 backup image jfs2
    

Local fix

  • If  snapshot image backup is required, then
    re-name the volume, so there will be no "/dev/" symbols in the
    path.
