Error description

  • The DELETE/UPDATE/RESTORE/AUDIT/MOVE/QUERY commands for a Tape
    Storage Pool volume may erroneously fail reporting:
    
    Volume xxxxxx is not defined in a storage pool
    
    
    when specifying the Tape Volume Name using a lower case.
    
    For example, having a tape volume with a label equal to
    "A00300R",  the proper command to MOVE DATA off from that volume
    will be:
    
    
    MOVE DATA A00300R
    
    and NOT
    
    MOVE DATA a00300r
    
    otherwise the user will get:
    
    ANR2401E MOVE DATA: Volume a00300r  is not defined in a storage
    pool
    
    
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Spectrum Protect Server version 7.1.6 and later
    | MDVREGR 7.1.6.0-TIV_5698MSV |
    
    
    Initial Impact:
    Low
    
    
    
    Additional Keywords:

Local fix
