APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    Volumes meeting the reclamation threshold might remain in a
    local copy
    container pool after a PROTECT STGPOOL process completes
    successfully.
    
    If such volumes are processed for reclamation by a PROTECT
    STGPOOL process but subsequent QUERY VOLUME
    commands still list these volumes with a state other than
    PENDING or SCRATCH,
    this APAR applies.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    7.1.9, 8.1.3 and 8.1.4
    
    Initial Impact: (high/med/low)
    high
    
    Additional Keywords:
    reclaim, expire, pending, scratch, copycontainer, tape
    
    MDVREGR 8.1.3
    

Local fix

  • Running PROTECT STGPOOL multiple times consecutively might allow
    all eligible volumes to be reclaimed.
