Error description

  • The Tivoli Storage Manager BACKUP NODE/NAS command with TOC=YES
    will pin the active log (recovery log) while generating the
    table-of-contents information into a temporary table.  Busy
    servers can experience significant active log growth during
    NDMP backups because of this long running (pinned) transaction.
    
    This behavior can eventually lead to active log exhaustion,
    which can cause the server process to abort.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    None.
    
    Initial Impact:
    High
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    All V6 Tivoli Storage Manager server users
    
    Additional Keywords:
    TSM ACTIVE LOG PIN PINNED PINNING NDMP CONTENTS TOC ANR0130E
    NDMP.IMAGE.CONTENTS NDMP.NODES TEMP TEMPORARY TABLE MSGANR0130E
    

Local fix

  • Run BACKUP NODE/NAS without the TOC=yes parameter.
