APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • There is a dependency of the parameter SUMmaryretention from the
    parameter ACTlogretention which is not described in the
    Tivoli Storage Manager server manuals.
    The command 'Set SUMmaryretention (number of days)' has no
    effect if the criteria for ACTLOG pruning is not met.
    
    The ACTLOG becomes eligible for pruning, if either
    ACTlogretention MB is smaller than the current ACTLOG size, or
    ACTlogretention Days is shorter than the age
    of the oldest ACTLOG record,
    depending on the selected ACTlogretention Mgmtstyle.
