Error description

  • In Tivoli Storage Manager v7.1.1 an administrator with storage
    privileges (unrestricted or not) cannot run the following two
    commands:
    
    - BACKUP STGPOOL
    - COPY ACTIVEDATA
    
    Running one of the two commands will return the following error:
    
    ANR2035E   Administrator <admin name> is not authorized to issue
    this command.
    
    And this This is in contrast with the official documentation
    that clearly states that the two above commands can be run by an
    administrator with storage privileges.
    
    | MDVREGR 7.1.1.0-TIV_5698MSV |
    
    Customer/L2 diagnostics:
    None.

Local fix

  • Use an administrator with system privilege to run the commands
    until a fix is available.  Use the GRANT AUTHORITY command to
    give system privilege to an administrator if needed.
