Pinned topic dsmreconcile fails for a TSM-HSM-controlled gpfs-filesystem
I set up a TSM-for Spacemanagement (HSM)-Service integrating a gpfs-filesystem with about 100 different filesets.
After testing manually with various dsmmigrate-, dsmrecall-, dsmreconcile-jobs
and adjusting appropriate TSM-service-,-HSM- and gpfs-settings,
the HSM-tools worked without problems.
Than I migrated "gpfs-policy-driven"
about 60 TB of gpfs-data (located in different storage pools and filesets)
=> no problems also with the recall of part of it through "user-access".
dsmreconcile-tool (that worked for the small data-ammount before)
every evening at 19:02 o'clock ran into an error:
Reconciling '/gpfs/airsat' file system:
Querying the TSM server for a list of migrated files...
(=> at 19:02 independent from the start)
ANS8049E A connection with the server cannot be established due to a communications time-out.
ANS9082W dsmreconcile: error encountered while reconciling file system /gpfs/airsat.
=> The reconcilation stopped
changing different parameters in the dsm.sys (RECOncileinterval to 0 / 9999 etc.)
than restarting everytimes the TSM-service
=> same behaviour.
Is there any parameter to adjust (server or client) ?
Can anybody give me a hint on this behaviour and how to prevent it ?

Re: dsmreconcile fails for a TSM-HSM-controlled gpfs-filesystem2013-03-22T11:45:11ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Additional question and further remarks, concerning the problem in the subject:
To apply a gpfs-driven migration it is recommended in different IBM-Field-Guides,
to deactivate the dsmmonitord and dsmscoutd (also a procedure is proposed to do so).
So I did also in my gpfs-HSM-Configuration !
Now reading the documentations of the dsmreconcile-command:
I find several dependencies and parameters to be defined for the usage of even these daemons !?
So my question:
How can a dsmreconcile be performed through gpfs, without running the dsmmonitord and dsmscoutd ?

Sorry for the late response. Have seen your entry just today.
There is a special reconciliation method available in GPFS-HSM environments that bases on the GPFS policy engine like the threshold migration. TSM for Space Management comes with a sample script that can be used. Find it in
Furthermore you can look at the TSM IC:
Search for "policy based reconcile"
Before you run the policy based reconciliation the first time you need to prepare the environment. Use the command "dsmreconcile -preptwo" to do this.
