APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Backup and archive retention grace periods for a policy domain
    can be changed using the "UPDATE DOMAIN domain_name BACKRET=x
    ARCHRET=x" command.
    Changes to the grace periods are not effective for the domain
    until a policy set in the domain is activated.
    The grace periods are independent of the policy set and should
    not rely on any policy set activation to be effective.
    This can cause unexpected behavior in inventory expiration.
    
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Server all supported versions
    
    
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
    
    
    
    Additional Keywords:
    TSM ARCHIVE BACKUP RETENTION GRACE PERIOD ACTIVATE
    

Local fix

  • When backup and archive retention grace periods are changed
    using "UPDATE DOMAIN" command, ensure that "VALIDATE POLICYSET"
    and "ACTIVATE POLICYSET" commands are subsequently used to
    activate the desired policy set in the policy domain.
