Error description

  • In an environment configured for node replication, if
    deduplication is  enabled on both  the source and target
    Tivoli Storage Manager Servers, replicating a node
    with a file larger than 10,000 MB will result in only
    part of the file being replicated without any error
    reported.
    
    Restoring a replicated file from the target server
    results in only a portion of the file being retrieved.
    
    Restoring from the source server is not affected.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    
    Issue the following select statements on the source server
    
    db2 "select distinct nrro.repl_objid from
    tsmdb1.bf_super_aggregates bfsa left join tsmdb1.backup_objects
    imbk on (bfsa.objid = imbk.objid AND bfsa.bfid != bfsa.fragid)
    left join tsmdb1.replicated_objects nrro on (nrro.nodeid =
    imbk.nodeid AND nrro.fsid = imbk.fsid AND nrro.objid =
    imbk.objid) where nrro.repl_objid IS NOT NULL"
    
    db2 "select distinct nrro.repl_objid from
    tsmdb1.bf_super_aggregates bfsa left join tsmdb1.archive_objects
    imbk on (bfsa.objid = imbk.objid AND bfsa.bfid != bfsa.fragid)
    left join tsmdb1.replicated_objects nrro on (nrro.nodeid =
    imbk.nodeid AND nrro.fsid = imbk.fsid AND nrro.objid =
    imbk.objid) where nrro.repl_objid IS NOT NULL"
    
    db2 "select distinct nrro.repl_objid from
    tsmdb1.bf_super_aggregates bfsa left join
    tsmdb1.spaceman_objects imbk on (bfsa.objid = imbk.objid AND
    bfsa.bfid != bfsa.fragid) left join tsmdb1.replicated_objects
    nrro on (nrro.nodeid = imbk.nodeid AND nrro.fsid = imbk.fsid AND
    nrro.objid = imbk.objid) where nrro.repl_objid IS NOT NULL"
    
    This will show any replicated objects that are affected.
    
    Alternatively, Issuing Q OCC STGPOOL=<pool_name>
    on both the souce and target server will show a large
    discrepancy between the values for "Logical Space Occupied"
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager v7.1 on all platforms
    
    Initial Impact:
