Error description

  • After a fresh installation of the Tivoli Storage Manager server
    or after server V 5.5 upgrade, changes to the ACTIVELOGSIZE
    might not get picked up during the first server start and the
    value will not be picked up afterwards until a change is made
    again.
    
    As an example, for a new server installation this results in the
    server running with the default logsize of 16GB:
    Recreate scenario (for fresh install):
    - configure filesystem for active log with 20GB of space
    - in dsmserv.opt specify
      ACTIVELOGSIZE 20000
    - upon server initialization QUERY LOG will show
    Total Space(MB)      Used Space(MB)      Free Space(MB)
    ---------------     ---------------     ---------------
             20,000               3,703              16,297
    
    From "db2 get db cfg"
     Log file size (4KB)                         (LOGFILSIZ) =
    131072
     Number of primary log files                (LOGPRIMARY) = 32
    
    (LOGFILSIZ * 4096KB = 512MB)
    
      Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected: all V6.3
      Initial Impact: Low
      Additional Keywords: ZZ63 TSM LOGFILESIZE dsmicfgx  dsmupgdx
    dsmserv format
    

Local fix

  • Either
    - stop the server,  remove the logattr.chk file from the
      instance directory and restart the server
    or
    - update the dsmserv.opt ACTIVELOGSIZE and restart the server
      (two restarts required to adjust to the original value)
