Error description

  • Restoring a primary storage pool from an Active Data Pool (ADP)
    fails. The following errors are seen in the server activity log:
    
    ANR9999D_2732320499 UpdateCachedList(afcputil.c:7161)
    Thread<48>: Error 1101 obtaining aliases for bitfile xxxx
    ANR9999D_2569878844
    AfProcessInactiveBitfileList(afcputil.c:3404) Thread<48>: Error
    9979 updating cached list for  bfId=xxxx
    
    This problem occurs when all files in the aggregate are inactive
    in the ADP.
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager server V6 and V7
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics (If Applicable)
    In order to determine if all files in the aggregate are
    inactive, issue server command:
    show bfo <bfid>
    
    Where <bfid> is the bitfile shown in the error message. For
    example, the output will look similar to this:
    
    show bfo 213692555
    
    Bitfile Object: 213692555
    **Super-bitfile 213692555 contains following aggregated
    bitfiles,
    Bitfile Id, offset, length, active state or owner, link bfid
     212343874     0             0             Inactive
    
    **Archival Bitfile Entry
      Bitfile Type: ACTIVEDATA  Storage Format: 22
      Bitfile Size: 1669  Number of Segments: 1, flags: 0
      Storage Pool ID: -1000000  Volume ID: 68456  Volume Name:
    WHE103L3
    
    Verify all files in this aggregate show Inactive. If they are,
    this APAR applies.
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
    
    Additional Keywords:

Local fix

  • Run the following command from Tivoli Storage Manager admin
    command line to delete the problematic bitfile:
    delete bitfile <ADP storage pool name> <aggregate bfid>
    
    This problem can repeat if there are other aggregates with only
    inactive bitfiles. If the problem persists and occurs on many
    different aggregates, contact support for a code fix.
