APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Even if the following command is executed without any error on a
    Tivoli Storage Manager server against a node for updating the
    "option_set" field to NULL:
    
    Update node node_name clopt=
    
    the following select statement will continue to return an
    incorrect value as if the option_set field is still populated:
    
    select count as "count(*)" from nodes where node_name like
    'node_na%' and option_set like '%'
    
    
        count(*)
    ------------
               1
    
    Customer/L2 diagnostics:
    The "update node" command does not set correctly the option_set
    field  to NULL and therefore the select statement will continue
    to report erroneously  that the "option_set" field is populated.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected: All Tivoli Storage
    Manager  Server on all platforms.
    
    
    Initial Impact: Low
    
    Additional Keywords: update node option_set count select
