Error description

  • During a Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager for Windows backup of
    a file system, some of the objects bind to the DEFAULT
    management class even though a different management class is
    specified via VSS Policy statements. Most of the objects bind
    to the correct management class defined in the VSS policy
    statement. However, some objects bind to the DEFAULT management
    class instead which can lead to data being stored into a
    different storage pool than the one intended.
