Error description

  • If the PERFORM LIBACTION command is run for a library that
    already has drives defined, the command may incorrectly issue
    the following message:
    ANR8396E PERFORM LIBACTION: Library LIBRARY_NAME is not capable
    of discovering the drives that it owns.
    The ANR8396E message above is appropriate in environments where
    SANDISCOVERY is not functional.  If SANDISCOVERY is working,
    the QUERY SAN command will display details of the SAN attached
    devices.  If SANDISCOVERY is functional and the PERFORM
    LIBACTION ACTION=DEFINE command is run for a library that
    already has drives defined, the command may fail with a
    misleading ANR8396E message.
    The Tivoli Storage Manager server should issue a more
    appropriate message when the PERFORM LIBACTION ACTION=DEFINE
    command fails on a library that already has drives defined.
    If drives and paths to drives are deleted the PERFORM
    LIBACTION ACTION=DEFINE command can be used.  See the
    Local Fix for more details.
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
     Tivoli Storage Manager server 6.3 and 7.1
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics (If Applicable)

Local fix

  • Run PERFORM LIBACTION LIBRARY_NAME ACTION=DELETE command to
    delete current drive and path definitions before running
    PERFORM LIBACTION LIBRARY_NAME ACTION=DEFINE command.
