  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A node's backupset won't expire after its retention time if ALL
    the node's filespaces on the Tivoli Storage Manager have been
    deleted.
    
    As a result the backupset will be retained forever.
    
    Customer/L2 diagnostics:
    Verify with commands "query filespace" and "query node" if the
    related filespaces and node exist on Tivoli Storage Manager
    Server. If ALL the filespaces do not exist or the node itself
    no longer exists, then this confirms the APAR
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected: All Tivoli Storage
    Manager Server on all platforms.
    

Local fix

  • Delete the backupset manually with command "delete backupset"
