  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The 6.4.1.2 interim fix was available early and briefly on
    the FTP server before any download page or APAR list was
    published for that level.
    Issuing a 'dsmc vm backup <vm>' followed by 'dsmc vm q <vm>'
    can cause a crash in that client level, discovered in late tests
    The Win x32, Win x64, and Linux x86 packages were removed from
    the FTP server, and will be replaced by 6.4.1.3 packages
    that prevent the crash.
