Error description

  • When running 'query status' on a 6.x Tivoli Storage Manager
    Server, the setting
    for "Database Reporting Mode"  is displayed.
    
    "help query status" from the admin client doesn't provide a
    description of the setting or it's possible options.
    Online Infocenter documentation also doesn't supply a
    description or available options.
    
    They should state:
    
    Database Reporting Mode
    Specifies the level of database diagnostic reporting to be
    presented on the service console and
    activity log. The following values are possible:
    
    NONE
        Specifies that no database diagnostic reporting is
    performed. This setting should not normally
    be used.
    PARTIAL
        Specifies that the only events that are reported are those
    that are exceptions and that might
    represent errors. This is the default.
    FULL
        Specifies that all database diagnostic information is
    reported. This includes information that
    is normal and expected.
    
    Note: The default value should be kept unless IBM support is
    engaged
    to diagnose an issue.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Server version 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3 on all
    supported platforms
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
