Error description

  • The Tivoli Storage Manager server RECLAIMSTGPOOL option can be
    defined via the the DEFINE STGPOOL and UPDATE STGPOOL commands
    to specify an alternative primary storage pool as a target
    for reclaimed data.
    
    Attempting to use this option with sequential file storage
    pools can lead to operational failures with reclamation
    processing, particularly when the primary storage pool is
    deduplicated, but the target storage pool is not.  In such
    a case, an administrator might witness an error similar to
    the following during reclamation:
    
      ANR9999D_0646289024 BfReconstruct(bfcreate.c:3678)
                          Thread<911>: Internal error: Inter-pool
                          copy of deleted bitfile 123456789
    
    The server should prevent administrators from configuring
    sequential FILE storage pools with the RECLAIMSTGPOOL option.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    None.
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    All supported Tivoli Storage Manager servers.
    
    Additional Keywords:
    TSM RECLAIM RECLAMATION STGP STORAGE POOL STGPOOL ANR9999D
    MSGANR9999D INTERPOOL INTER-POOL INTERNAL ERROR
    

Local fix

  • Remove the RECLAIMSTGPOOL option from sequential file storage
    pools. For example: UPDATE STGP DEDUP RECLAIMSTGP=""
