Error description

  • Restore stg from an Active Data Pool (ADP) storage pool may
    encounter errors similar to the following:
    ANR9999D_2732320499 UpdateCachedList(afcputil.c:7328)
    Thread<47>: Error 1101 obtaining aliases for bitfile xxxx
    ANR9999D_2569878844
    AfProcessInactiveBitfileList(afcputil.c:3436) Thread<47>: Error
    9979 updating cached list for bfId=xxxx
    
    These errors are the same as in APAR IT05695, but the root cause
    is different. This problem occurs on grouping files (such as
    system state backups) where there are both zero and non-zero
    length sub-bitfiles.
    
    This problem only occurs on server 6.3.5 and 7.1.0 or later.
    This is a side effect of APAR IC92109.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager server version 6.3.5, 7.1
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics (If Applicable)
    Run SHOW BFO for the bitfile in the error message. The output
    will show there are both zero and non-zero length subfiles. For
    example,
    show bfo 259448427
    Bitfile Object: 259448427
    **Super-bitfile 259448427 contains following aggregated
    bitfiles,
    Bitfile Id, offset, length, active state or owner, link bfid

    SHOW INVO shows these are grouping files. For example,
    Inventory object 258739478 of copy type Backup has attributes:
      NodeName: APPS17, Filespace(2): APPS17\SystemState\NULL\System
    State\SystemState,
