Error description

  • During reclamation, message ANR3633I may be reported, indicating
    volumes skipped.  The message indicates that the volume
    contains deduplicated data and has not been backed up to a copy
    pool.  Storage pool backup reports that no files need to be
    backed up.
    
    The messages are similar below;

Local fix

  • 1.Setting DEUPREQUIRESBACKUP NO is a temporary workaround.
    2.Disabling collocation, such that more files get put on each
    volume, would also prevent the problem.
