Error description

  • When issuing a "SELECT CLIENT_ACCESS from ADMINS" SQL command
    against an IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly Tivoli Storage
    Manager) server, users may notice that the resulting output
    is artificially limited.  The CLIENT_ACCESS field will
    return a maximum of 1024 characters, even if there are more
    characters stored within this field in the database.
    
    This issue does not cause a functional problem with the
    server, but may create a reporting issue for users issuing
    the above SQL command.
    
    The current 1024 character limit will be increased for this
    field.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    None.
    
    Initial Impact:
    Low
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    All supported server users.
    
    Additional Keywords:
    TSM IBM SPECTRUM PROTECT SELECT SQL ADMINS CLIENTACCESS
    CLIENT_ACCESS 1024 CHAR CHARACTERS TRUNCATED INCOMPLETE
    

Local fix

  • Use the QUERY ADMIN F=D command to display the "Client Access
    Privilege" for the admin, instead of "SELECT CLIENT_ACCESS
    from ADMINS" SQL command, until fixing maintenance can be
    applied.
