Error description

  • Executing a Maintenance schedule might end up in the Spectrum

    if one (or more) of the processes included in the script does
    return (only) a warning message.
    
    Example:
    the maintenance script does include a reclamation operation and
    there is no data to be reclaimed for STGPOOL, then this warning
    message will be seen in the ACTLOG:
    
    ANR2111W RECLAIM STGPOOL: There is no data to process for
    STGPOOL
    
    leading to the entire maintenance schedule in the Spectrum
    Protect Operations Center "Maintenance" window incorrectly shown
    as failed.
