Error description

  • After running 'UPDATE VOLUME * acc=reado whereacc=of wherest=emp
    wherestg=xxxx' only the first volume will return to scratch and
    is deleted from the storage pool. All others still exist in the
    storage pool and remain in empty status.
    
    
    QUERY ACTLOG will show:
    UPDATE VOLUME * acc=reado whereacc=of wherest=emp wherestg=xxxx
    ANR2208I Volume aaaa deleted from storage pool xxxx.
    ANR2208I Volume bbbb deleted from storage pool xxxx.
    ANR2208I Volume cccc deleted from storage pool xxxx.
    ANR2208I Volume dddd deleted from storage pool xxxx.
    ANR2208I Volume eeee deleted from storage pool xxxx.
    
    But if you have a look at the output of 'QUERY VOLUME
    STATUS=EMPTY' you will see that only one volume is returned to
    scratch and all others still stay in status empty.
