    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All Tivoli Storage Manager server users.                     *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * See error description.                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Apply fixing level when available. This problem is currently *
    * projected to be fixed in level 7.1.3. Note that this is      *
    * subject to change at the discretion of IBM.                  *
    *                                                              *
    * After applying the fixing level.  Use the following          *
    * instructions to change the DB2 temporary directory during    *
    * the installation on AIX, Linux, HP-UX and Solaris.           *
    *                                                              *
    * Using a non-default DB2 temporary directory                  *
    *                                                              *
    * The Tivoli Storage Manager installer uses the /tmp directory *
    * as the default temporary location to extract the DB2 package *
    * and run the DB2 installer.  The DB2 installer program also   *
    * uses the /tmp directory as part of the installation process. *
    * You can override Tivoli Storage Manager temporary location   *
    * as follows:                                                  *
    *                                                              *
    * 1.  Install the IBM Installation Manager, if it is not       *
    * already installed.                                           *
    *                                                              *
    * 2.  Add the following line to the                            *
    * /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/IBMIM.ini file:         *
    *                                                              *
    * -DDB2TMPDIR=/new_db2_tmp_location                            *
    *                                                              *
    * 3. Set the DB2TMPDIR environment variable to point at the    *
    * new temporary directory:                                     *
    *                                                              *
    * export DB2TMPDIR=/db2home/db2inst1/tmp                       *
    *                                                              *
    * 4.  Ensure that you run the Tivoli Storage Manager in the    *
    * environment with the DB2TMPDIR variable set.                 *
