Error description

  • After running protect storage pool for a container pool to a
    local copy container pool, the reclamation portion of the
    process does not correctly update the volume occupancy.
    Subsequent protect processes will again attempt to reclaim these
     volumes but they will not go back to scratch.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    Volumes showing this issue will remain in the local copy
    container pool with a utilization of 0% and a status of full.
    Each time the protect is run with a reclaim the volumes will be
    processed in the activity log but they will not change to
    pending/scratch as expected.
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    7.1.7.0 and 8.1.0
    
    Initial Impact: (high/med/low)
    high
    
    Additional Keywords:
