Error description

  • A COPY ACTIVEDATA operation may not copy all active data to the
    active data pool, when there are
    files larger than the MAXFRAGMENTSIZE setting on a 7.1 TSM
    server.  The default value for this
    option is 10G (10000M).  The COPY ACTIVEDATA operation will skip
    a volume when it encounters the
    second or subsequent fragment of a file that is larger than the
    MAXFRAGMENTSIZE setting before
    encountering the first fragment.  All remaining files on the
    volume are also skipped.  The COPY
    ACTIVEDATA operation will end successfully.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    Tracing the COPY ACTIVEDATA operation with trace classes AFCOPY
    AFMOVE will report
    something like this:
    
    10:12:45.606
    [705840][afbackup.c][2079][AfGetBackupOptimization]:Initial
    backup optimization data:
    VolId=123070, CopyPoolId/ActiveDataPoolId=-1000000, Start=1,
    Offset=0
    ...
    10:12:45.781 [705840][bfcputil.c][1228][BfTestBackupFile]:Error
    1100 from imGetActiveInactiveState
    for bitfile 1071283525.
    
    The trace from AfGetBackupOptimization identifies the volume.
    The trace from BfTestBackupFile
    reports the error (object not found) and the bitfile id.
    Running SHOW BFO on this bifile id will
    report it as a fragment, for example:
    
    Bitfile Object: 1071283525
    **Super-Bitfile 1071283525 is a fragment in Super Aggregate
    1071283471
