Error description

  • Volume mount processing can be severely impacted if all of the
    tape drive paths are not online for the library manager and
    library clients using a libtype VTL library.  ANR8758W was
    implemented to warn against this:
    ANR8758W  The number of online drives in the VTL library library
    name does not match the number of online drive paths for source
    source name.
    As a result of this mismatch, performance of VTL libtype
    libraries will degrade.  Tape mounts and dismount will be
    impacted negatively.
    Currently, the warning message is not reported against the
    library manager drive paths and should do so.  This will be
    corrected.
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    6.3.x.x Tivoli Storage Manager Server
    7.1.x.x Tivoli Storage Manager Server
