Error description

  • The following error is logged in the Spectrum Protect server
    activity log :
    
    ANR0453W Server to server session refused -
    no password defined.
    
    There is no server to server configuration issue and the error
    is unrelated.
    
    In the case of a Backup-Archive client which was removed
    from the Spectrum Protect server but the scheduler is left
    running on the client machine, the ANR0453W error is logged
    at repeated interval, every 20 minutes when using the default
    retryperiod client option.
    
    The error is logged under the following conditions :
    1. There is an unregistered Backup-Archive client or
       administrator which connects to the server.
    2. The client or administrator attempts to connect without
       the server certificate.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics :
    A server trace (SESSION TCP) will identify the NODENAME
    in question along with its tcp/ip address.
    For example :
    
    <timestamp> [nnn][smnode.c][26589][SmDoCertQry]:
     Enter: NODENAME(xxx), entity
    <timestamp> [nnn][smnode.c][26706][SmDoCertQry]:
     no password for kdb
    <timestamp> [nnn][smnode.c][26709][PutConsoleMsg]:
     ANR0453W Server to server session refused -
     no password defined.~
    <timestamp> [nnn][tcpcomm.c][2609][psSessionThread]:
    Normal close session with client on socket yy from
     <IP-ADDRESS>, port <port>
    
    Initial Impact: Low
    Additional Keywords: SP TSM
    
    Versions Affected:
    IBM Spectrum Protect server V7.1.8 and above, V8.1.2 and above,
    on all platforms.
    IBM Spectrum Protect client V7.1.8 and above, V8.1.2 and above
    on all platforms.
    Both the client and server must run with one of the affected
    levels.
    

Local fix

    client or administrator.
