Error description

  • Tivoli Storage Manager Backup/Archive Client for Windows stores
    a new version of the resident file when the stub file should be
    stored under the following conditions:
    - backup option skipmigrated is set to NO (default)
    - incremental backup with option journal based backup (JBB)
    enabled
    - HSM for Windows migrated files are stored on tape or
    sequential access disk.
    
    Affected Products:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Client for Windows versions
    7.1.0.0 - 7.1.1.0
    
    Customer/L2 diagnostics:
    Check HSM for Windows log file
    ..\hsmclient\listings\dsmc-retrieve-<date-time>.log
    for HSM for Winodws migrated files that are not expected to be
    retrieved for backup.
    
    Additional keywords:
    retrieve rebackup
    

Local fix

  • No local fix.
    Workaround until fix is applied:
    Stop TSM Journal Service and run incremental backups without
    the TSM Journal Service.
    Note: BA client option NOJOURNAL is not appropriate in this
    case.

Problem conclusion

  • The problem has been fixed.
    Please note: One part of the fix is described in APAR IT06770
    'HSM FOR WINDOWS STUB FILES ARE BACKED UP AS RESIDENT IF
    JOURNALED BASED BACKUP IS ENABLED' and needs to be applied to
    TSM HSM for Windows client. The second part of the fix is in
    B/A client for Windows as described in this APAR.
