Error description

  • Defining an exclude.dir statement for a directory and then
    running a wildcarded 'dsmc preview backup' command against the
    excluded directory will result in errors being logged to the
    dsmerror.log.
    For example, the following exclude.dir statement is added to the
    dsm.opt file:
    exclude.dir C:\test62
    Either of the following command syntaxes are issued:
    dsmc preview backup c:\test62\*
    dsmc preview backup c:\test62\
    The command will run normally and produce the expected
    dsmprev.txt file, however, the following errors will be seen in
    the dsmerror.log file:
    04/02/2014 10:01:13 ANS5250E An unexpected error was
    encountered.
       TSM function name : GetFileSecurityInfo
       TSM function      : CreateFile() returned '123' for file
    'C:\test62\*'
       TSM return code   : 935
       TSM file          : ntfileio.cpp (9410)
    These errors are erroneous and may be ignored.
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager client version 6.x and 7.x
    on Windows
    Additional Keywords:
