Error description

  • When restoring Tivoli Storage Manager database with 'dsmserv
    restore db' command,
    the 'on' option can be used to specify a file
    that lists the directories to which the database is restored to.
    
    If the file specified by 'on' option is incorrectly entered as a
    directory name,
    such as 'on=/directory1', the server should report a ANR2488W
    warning message.
    
    ANR2488W List file 'file_name' could not be opened.
    
    The restore continues using the previously defined locations
    from when the database backup occurred.
    
    If the file specified by the 'on' option is empty a warning
    message should also be issued to detail this.
    Currently it does not do so.
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager Server versions 6.3.x and 7.1.x
    
    Initial Impact: Low
    
    
    Additional Keywords:

Local fix

  • Rerun restore using correct 'on=file_name' syntax.
