Error description

  • Error Description:
    
    When V6TCPIP is configured as the Tivoli Storage Manager servers
    communication method (COMMMETHOD V6TCPIP within the dsmserv.opt
    file), a subsequent QUERY OPTION COMMMETHOD command will produce
    the following output :
    
    Server Option              Option Setting
    -------------              --------------
    CommMethod                    TCPIP
    CommMethod                    FASP
    
    With V6TCPIP configured, the expected result returned reads:
    
    Server Option              Option Setting
    -------------              --------------
    CommMethod                    V6TCPIP
