Error description

  • The Tivoli Storage Manager server can report a false failure
    during REPLICATE NODE processing when the PREVIEW=YES parameter
    is specified.  For example:
    
     12/16/2013 07:11:57 ANR2017I Administrator ADMIN issued
                         command: REPLICATE NODE node1 p=y
     12/16/2013 07:12:03 ANR0984I Process 1234 for Replicate Node
                         started in the BACKGROUND at 07:12:03.
     12/16/2013 07:14:15 ANR0328I Replication preview of node(s)
                         NODE1 completed. Files current: 547,101.
                         Files to be replicated: 23,270. Files to
                         be updated: 79,822. Files to be deleted:
                         17,864. Amount to replicated: 1,378 GB.
                         Estimated run time: 0 Day(s), 1 Hour(s),
                         53 Minute(s).
     12/16/2013 07:14:15 ANR0986I Process 1234 for Replicate Node
                         running in the BACKGROUND processed
                         570,371 items for a total of
                         1,480,205,834,337 bytes with a completion
                         state of FAILURE at 14:32:17.
    
    Despite the FAILURE completion state within the ANR0986I
    message, no actual failure or error occurs during the
    replication preview process.  This is a false reporting
    problem when PREVIEW=YES is specified.
    
    This condition is more likely to occur when there are
    metadata updates to files that need to occur via replication
    processing.  Metadata file updates are indicated via the
    ANR0328I message reported during replication, by the "Files
    to be updated" counter (79,822 in the example above).
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    A "REPL" trace captured on the replication source during a
    failing REPLICATE NODE with PREVIEW=YES process will show

Local fix

  • If this APAR is a match, the completion state of FAILURE with
    REPLICATE NODE with PREVIEW=YES can be ignored until fixing
    maintenance is applied, as no actual failure occurs.
