  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a storage pool directory is updated with access=destroyed
    all of the extents in all the containers within the stgpooldir
    are marked as damaged. At IBM Spectrum Protect server level
    7.1.7.000 the update stgpooldir command using the
    access=destroyed option will not mark all of the extents as
    damaged even though the command run to successful completion.
    Subsequent audits or repair commands run to process damaged
    extents will therefore not process all the extents that they
    should.
    

Local fix

  • Use the audit container command with stgpool=<container pool
    name> stgpooldir=<storage pool directory>  and
    action=markdamaged options to ensure that all the extents in the
    stgpooldir being updated to an access of destroyed are flagged
    as damaged.
