Error description

  • If you run the UPDATE VOLUME server command for a container-copy
    storage pool and specify ACCESS=OFFSITE, the command fails with
    the following error message:
    
    ANR2117E UPDATE VOLUME: Access mode for volume xxxx cannot be
    changed to "offsite" - volume either does not belong to a copy
    storage
    pool or from  a device class of DEVTYPE=SERVER.
    
    The UPDATE VOLUME command needs to be modified to allow offsite
    tape rotation for container-copy storage pool volumes.
    
    
    
    IBM Spectrum Protect versions affected:
    Server V7.1.7 and later, and V8.1 and later, on supported
    platforms
