IT00973: TEMPORARY XML FILES NOT DELETED AFTER 'BACKUP VM'

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • At each VM backup, xml data is generated in the user temp
    directory as a result of the Advanced Directory Protection check
    done by the client within the VM guest.
    For example in  C:\Users\xTSMService\AppData\Local\Temp\2\
    a directory <vmname>-vss_manifestsxx.zip_unzip containing
    several xml files is generated and should be deleted when the
    backup completes.
    This might not happen and will therefore fill up the directory.
    This is seen only on Windows datamovers, not on Linux.
    
    Note: The directory the files are saved in is
    dependent on the Windows TEMP environment variable.
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Client 7.1 on Windows
    
    Initial Impact: Low
    
    Additional Keywords: zz71 TSM4VE AD TDP4VE writer.xml backup.xml
    vmware active directory
    

Local fix

  • Until the fix is available, it is safe to delete these
    <vmname>-vss_manifestsxx.zip_unzip directories and their
    contents after the backup is completed.
