Error description

  • When replicating grouped objects (ie system state or Tivoli
    Storage Manager for Virtual Environments) when
    'dissimilarpolicies' is enabled and the target server is keeping
     less versions than the source server,
    the error:
    "ANR0532W smrepl.c(1435):  Transaction 0:12345678 was aborted
    for session 12345"
    can be reported and replicate node will end in failure.
    
    The issue is that replication cannot find a group member object
    that was expected on the target server because expiration on the
    target server deleted another newer version
    of the group on the target.  This object will just be deleted
    after it is replicated so the only impact is the message
    reported..

Local fix

  • 1. Replicate the filespace with an active_data replrule set for
    the filespace on the source.
    Then during the replicate node do forcereconcile=yes.  The
    target will then have only the current active version.
    Then on subsequent replications it will replicate new objects as
    they arrive and expire off old versions
    
    or
    
    2. Disable dissimilarpolicies feature .
