Error description

  • The Tivoli Storage Manager server introduced Oracle StorageTek
    T10000D drive support in release 7.1 as documented within the
    Release Notes:
    
      http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/tsminfo/v7r1/topic
      /com.ibm.itsm.srv.common.doc/relnote_devices710.html
    
    Additional information, including implementation command
    syntax, can be located within the following TechNote:
    
      http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=663&uid=swg21644182
    
    The required T10000D and T10000D-C drive formats, however, are
    not documented in the 7.1 Tivoli Storage Manager server
    publications under the DEFINE DEVCLASS command syntax.
    
    Also, the DEFINE DEVCLASS online help facility within the
    Tivoli Storage Manager server does not reflect that T10000D or
    T10000D-C are supported formats.
    
    This is a documentation problem only.  The T10000D drive
    formats are accepted by the DEFINE DEVCLASS command.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    None.
    
    Initial Impact:
    Low
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    All 7.1 Tivoli Storage Manager server users of Oracle T10000D
    drives.
    
    Additional Keywords:
