Error description

  • When Tivoli Storage Manager server run on HP-UX platform, define
    volume fails when using a filesystem greater than 2TB in size.
    
    For example, when /tsm filesystem is greate than 2TB, actlog
    reports for define volume:
    
    DEFINE VOLUME HUE-DISKPOOL /tsm/disk/disk005.dsm
    formatsize=10000 wait=yes
    ANR0984I Process 357 for DEFINE VOLUME started in the FOREGROUND
    ANR7865W Unable to create volume  /tsm/disk/disk005.dsm. Return
    code=108.
    
    
    The cause of the failure is that Tivoli Storage Manager server
    uses statfs() function call on the HP-UX platform
    which is limited to work with a maximum filesystem size of 2TB.
