    APAR Type:            Field
    Approver Initials:    RB
    Severity:             3

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Deleting a situation in an FTO environment will result in
    orphaned group member records in the TGROUPI table at the
    MIRROR. It is possible under the right circumstances for these
    records to make their way back to the acting HUB.
    
    RECREATE INSTRUCTIONS:
    In an FTO environment with the HUB and MIRROR running:
    - Create a situation
    - add the situation to a situation group.
    - Verify the resulting group member record exists in the
    TGROUPI table at the acting HUB and at the MIRROR.
    - Delete the situation at the acting HUB
    - Check again for the group member record at the acting HUB and
    the MIRROR. It will be gone from the acting HUB but still found
    at the MIRROR.
    
    LOCAL FIX:
    The group member record at the MIRROR will need to be manually
    deleted.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Group member discrepancies between hub monitoring server and
    mirror monitoring server.
    
    
    Contents of the group member table can get out of sync between
    the hub monitoring server and the mirror monitoring server. The
    problem occurs when deleting a situation that is assigned to one
    or more groups. This leaves orphaned group members at the mirror
    monitoring server. The orphaned group member records can make
    their way back to the hub monitoring server during fail over
    operations. The orphaned group members are typically harmless,
    though can become relevant if the deleted situation is
    recreated.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product has been modified to remove the group members at the
     mirror monitoring server when a situation is deleted.
