Error description

  • After upgrade from Tivoli Storage Manger Server version 5  to a
    version 6 or version 7 server, for nodes
    using sessioninit=serveronly setting, "query node f=d" for those
    nodes shows
    
    Session Initiation: ServerOnly
    
    but
    "select node_name,session_initiation from nodes"    (from
    dsmadmc)
    shows session initiation as ClientOrServer
    
    NODE_NAME                 SESSION_INITIATION
    ------------                           -------------------
    NODENAME                   ClientOrServer
    
    Running "update node" command with sessioninit=serveronly makes
    no difference to select output and it remains
    as ClientOrServer.
    
    
    An additional issue seen, is that nodes with passexp set to 0,
    will now show this as NULL after upgrade to 7.1. This can cause
    client backups for affected nodes failing, until passexp is
    reset to 0 with update node command.
    
    Initial Impact:
    Low
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Server  versions 6.x and 7.1.x
    
    
    Additional Keywords:
    zz61 zz62 zz63 zz71 node sessioninit select
    

Local fix

  • If "query node" shows sessioninitiation as serveronly and select
     shows as clientorserver, do:
    
    UPDATE NODE NODENAME SESSIONINITIATION=CLIENTORSERVER
    UPDATE NODE NODENAME SESSIONINITIATION=SERVERONLY
    
    
    For the passexp issue, run:
    update node node_name passexp=0
