  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When option VIRTUALMOUNTPOINT is set for a directory under a NFS
    file space, the virtual mount point is not being honored.  Files
    and directories that fall under the virtual file space are
    backed up twice, once under the virtual file space, and then a
    second time under the NFS file space.
    
    The correct behavior is for all files and directories that fall
    in the domain of the virtual file space, to be backed up one
    time under the virtual file space, and skipped under the NFS
    file space domain.
    .
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
    .
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Affected client versions 6.4.x and 7.1.x.
    .

Local fix

  • Do not define virtual mount points under the NFS file space
    until the fix is available.  Files will be backed up once under
    the NFS file space.
