    The problem is similar to APAR IC99083
    

Local fix

  • You can test for this problem prior to the upgrade attempt by
    issuing the following SQL against the server:
    
    select OWNER, NAME, INT32 from EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES where
    NAME='NODE_PASSEXP' and INT32=-1
    
    SELECT OWNER, COUNT(*) from EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES GROUP BY OWNER
    
    If the count is 1 and there is a result showing that it has a
    password set to never expire then the issue is a match for this
    APAR will have the exact same external symptom as IC99083.  If
    however the count is greater than 1 then following the upgrade
    the effected node will have its password expire time set to the
    default password expire time for the system.  This needs to be
    strongly noted.  Upgrading the TSM server to 7.1 or higher may
    changed password policy on nodes outside of administrator
    control.  It is strongly recommended at administrators verify
    password expire settings on all nodes following the upgrade.
    
    If you run into this problem during an upgrade and the server
    will not start due to the errors above then follow the same
    recovery steps as found in IC99083:
    
    The following SQL statement can be used to find a list of node
    names that have this problem:
    db2 => connect to tsmdb1
    db2 => set schema tsmdb1
    db2 => select nodename from nodes left join extended_attributes
    on nodes.nodename = extended_attributes.owner where
    extended_attributes.owner is NULL
    For each of these nodes an entry needs to be created in the
    extended attributes table:
    db2 => insert into extended_attributes (OWNER,NAME,TYPE,INT32)
    values ('NODENAME','NODE_PASSEXP',3,99)
    Where NODENAME is replaced by a node name from the above select
    statement.  This will set a password expiration of 99 days for
    that node.  The UPDATE NODE command can be used to reset the
    password expiration once the server is started successfully.
