Error description

  • After installing  7.1.0 release, if an AIX system reboot occurs,
    the following error may happen:
      ANR8440E Initialization failed for SCSI library LIB1 ; will
    retry in 2 minute(s).
    This happens because the devices owned by Tivoli Storage Manager
    device driver will be changed from "Available" to "Defined"
    state after AIX system reboot.
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:  7.1.0  on AIX
    platform with device(s) owned by Tivoli Storage Manager device
    driver
    Initial Impact: Medium
    Additional Keywords:   tsm cfgmgr lsdev
    

Local fix

  • There is a workaround for resolving this problem. Here are
    steps:
    1. issues command as
    odmget -q "rule *TSM*" Config_Rules
    to see if he gets the output as
    p7red1:/ 580# odmget -q "rule like *TSM*" Config_Rules
    Config_Rules:
            phase = 2
            seq = 60
            boot_mask = 0
            rule = "lsdev -C -s fcp -t TSM-FCSCSI -F name"
    p7red1:/ 581#
    2. If he does not get above output, then this is the problem in
    the 7.1.1 installation.
    Then he needs to verify if there is the Config_Rules.odmadd at
    /opt/tivoli/tsm/devices directory.
    If so, he needs to issue cat command to check this file to see
    if there is an entry as
    #
    #
    # Stanzas for populating Config_Rules for FC Devices  #
    #
    #
    Config_Rules:
      phase = 2
      seq = 60
      boot_mask = 0
      rule = "lsdev -C -s fcp -t TSM-FCSCSI -F name"
    3. If he sees above entry in the Config_Rules.odmadd file, then
    he can run command as
    odmadd Config_Rules.odmadd
    4. Then he needs to run step1 to verify the entry in the ODM.
    5. run one of following commands to bring all devices to
    Available state.
       shutdown -Fr
    or
       cfgmgr
