Error description

  • Error Description:
    If a Tivoli Storage Manager client is configured to access
    archived data of another node, an
    attempt to retrieve or query data using a web client session may
    result in an empty list of available
    archives.  This will be the case if the owner of the archived
    data differs from the Unix or Linux user
    who is using the web client. No error message is logged
    
    
    Customer/L2 diagnostics:
    The problem has been identified as access rules not being
    honored when the
    requesting Unix user is not the same as the Unix user who
    created the archive, even though an
    access rule exists that should allow access to the archive.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:   All Tivoli Storage
    Manager Server
    
    Initial Impact: Low.
    
    Additional Keywords: retrieve archive access root set web client
