Error description

  • Validate replpolicy command may  crash Tivoli Storage Manager
    server when more than 40 management classes are defined on the
    server.
    
    It is possible that it will not cause a crash immediately; it
    could just cause garbled data coming out from the command and
    could crash later or other odd behavior.
