Problem conclusion

  • The ?BACKUP VOLHISTORY? topic in the Administrator's Reference
    Guide will be updated in the next release. The following
    information will be updated in the Privilege class section:
    Any administrator can issue this command unless it includes the
    FILENAMES parameter:
    - If the FILENAMES parameter is specified and the
    REQSYSAUTHOUTFILE server option is set to YES, the administrator
    must have system privilege.
    - If the FILENAMES parameter is specified and the
    REQSYSAUTHOUTFILE server option is set to NO, the administrator
    must have operator, policy, storage, or system privilege.
