Error description

  • Server versions 7.1.1 and 8.1 introduced the 'audit libvolume'
    command.
    This command will fail on s390x and pSeries PPC Linux platforms
    (big endian)
    using lin_tape driver with IBM LTO4 drives and higher, and
    TS1130 drives and higher, with the following error message:
    
    
     ANR8302E I/O error on drive DRIVEX  (/dev/lin_tape/by-id/tapeX)
    with volume
    NONE (OP=VERIFYLIBVOL, Error Number=22, CC=0, rc =
    2863, KEY= 05, ASC=24, ASCQ= 00, SENSE=70.

    A0.42.4A.F1.F0.F2.F8.F2.F5.00.00.00.00.00.00.00,
    Description=An  undetermined error has occurred). Refer to
    the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager documentation on I/O error
    code   descriptions.
    
    In addition to this APAR, version 3.0.24 or higher, of lin_tape
    driver is also required,
    to correct the 'audit libvolume' failure. IBM tape hardware
    support
    can be contacted to request version of lin_tape that is
    required.
    
    The problem is caused by an incorrect definition in the IBM
    lin_tape driver header file.
    IBM Spectrum Protect server uses this definition.
    
    Initial Impact: Medium
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Spectrum Protect Versions
    Affected:
    Server v7.1.1.x and higher and v8.1.x  on s390x and pSeries PPC
    Linux platforms.
