Error description

  • After a successful Tivoli Storage Manager Server migration from
    V6 to 7.1.1 version, the old DB2 logs from the v9.7
    MIRRORLOGPATH directory will not be deleted neither moved
    to the new log directory that is "..NODE0000/LOGSTREAM0000".
    This may cause disk space issues as it essentially doubles the
    required filesystem space to accommodate the logs.
    This problem is also addressed by DB2 APAR IT05407.
    
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Server V7.1.1.000
    
    
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium

Local fix

  • option #1
    
    Prior to upgrading the TSM server:
    
    * remove the MIRRORLOGDIRECTORY server option from the server
    options file
    * halt and restart the TSM server
    * wait until there are no longer mirror log files in the
    directory
    * if there are still mirror log files contact support
    
    Upgrade the TSM server
    
    * add the MIRRORLOGDIRECTORY server option from the server
    options file
    * halt and restart the TSM server
    
    
    
    option #2
    
    Prior to upgrading the TSM server:
    
    * The mirror log file system must have enough free space to
    allow
    for two times the ACTIVELOGSize amount of space. The size of the
    mirror log file system must either be increased in size or the
    MIRRORLOGDIRECTORY must be changed to a file system that has
    sufficient capacity.
    
    * halt and restart the TSM server
    
    Upgrade the TSM server
    
    * Start the TSM server
    
    * At this point there may be twice the number of mirror logs.
    
    * The pre upgrade location is
    <mirror log directory>/NODE0000/<log file>
    For example:
    MIRRORLOGDIRECTORY          /lspace/tsmserver/mirrorlog
    /lspace/tsmserver/mirrorlog/NODE0000/S0000023.LOG
    
    * After the upgrade new log files are created in this
    location
    <mirror log directory>/NODE0000/LOGSTREAM0000/<log file>
    For example:
    MIRRORLOGDIRECTORY          /lspace/tsmserver/mirrorlog
    /lspace/tsmserver/mirrorlog/NODE0000/LOGSTREAM0000/S0000034.LOG
    
    * If there are still logs in the pre upgrade location
    <mirror log directory>/NODE0000/<log file>
    those logs are no longer required and can be manually deleted.
