APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The following may occur, if on a Tivoli Storage Manager Library
    Client, an AUDIT LIBRARY and an EXPORT command or GENERATE
    BACKUPSET command are run in parallel:
    the AUDIT LIBRARY process can change the status of a volume to
    scratch that is still in use for the other process.
    
    As a consequence of this, the Tivoli Storage Manager Library
    Manager can change the ownership of this volume to an other
    Library Client and so the volume may get overwritten.
    
    There is a timing issue when  AUDIT LIBRARY and EXPORT or
    GENERATE BACKUPSET  or PREPARE command are
    running at the same time.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager server versions 6.2.x, 6.3.x and 7.1.x on
    all supported platforms
    
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
    
    Additional Keywords:

Local fix

  • Do not run AUDIT LIBRARY and an EXPORTor GENERATE BACKUPSET
    command at the same time on a
    Library Client
