Error description

  • If virtual volumes are configured in a manner that they loop,
    meaning the source server is also the target, backups sent to
    that device class cannot be restored.
    For example, consider you have a server device class named
    DBB_VIRTSRV and the server name is VIRT_SRV1. The 'query server
    VIRT_SRV1' output shows that the 'High-Level Address' is the
    same value (either TCP/IP address or UNC) that the Tivoli
    Storage Manager server is running on.  Running a database backup
    to this device class will work successfully.  Attempting to
    restore that backup will cause the server processing to try
    establishing a session with the target server.  Since this
    points back to itself, the sessions will fail.  Failure errors
    which can be received are ANR0334E and ANR0454E.
    The intended fix for this APAR will prevent the ability to take
    a database backup when the source and target server are the
    same.
    
    Versions Affected: All Tivoli Storage Manager Server versions

Local fix

  • Database backups should be created on media that does not
    require the machine/server being restore to be available, i.e
    a non-server type device class.
