APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If during an admin schedule, "backup volhist" is run after
    "backup db" completes, with no
    gap inbetween, there exists a small timing window that will
    cause the activity log to report:
    
    ANR4501I Sequential volume history information
    successfully written to volhist.out.
    ANR4511E Volume history file
    X:\TSM\Server1\volhist.out.20140301191649 could not be opened.
    To restore the database, access to this file is required.
    
    The volume history file has been successfully updated despite
    the error message,
    but the shadow copy volhist.out.20140301191649 will remain.
    
    If "backup volhist" is run manually, no error is reported.
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Server 7.1 on all supported platforms
    
    Initial Impact: Medium
    
    Additional Keywords: zz71 volhist volhistory backup db
    

Local fix

  • Stop manually invoking BACKUP VOLHIST
    after a BACKUP DB in an admin schedule, as BACKUP VOLHIST and
    BACKUP
    DEVCONFIG are automatically run at end of BACKUP DB in version
    7.1
