  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A relatively large file is stored in a storage pool that has
    relatively small volumes. The large file is spread across many
    volumes. A storage pool backup operation can encounter the
    following messages:
    
    ANR0538I A resource waiter has been aborted.
    ANR1224E BACKUP STGPOOL: Process 0 terminated - lock conflict.
    
    This can occur even if MAXPROCESS=1. When MAXPROCESS is larger
    than 1, additional ANR0538I and ANR1224E messages can be
    reported.
    

Local fix

  • Increase the RESOURCETIMEOUT value to give the BACKUP STGPOOL
    process more time to complete.
