Error description

  • ANR2400E is reported when running delete volhist for volume of
    type=remote.  Volumes effected are owned by a library client.
    .
    Entries in the volume history output may resemble the following:
    .
    Location for volume A01481 is: 'TSM_SERV_1'
    2004/05/06 11:58:30  REMOTE              0      0      1 UNKNOWN
    A01481
    .
    Volume insert date and time is always the exact time that the 5.
    server was installed.
    .
    Impact:  TSM is not able to delete these volumes using the delet
    volhist command.  The volumes will never return to scratch.
    

Local fix

  • Users can issue the command:
    DEL VOLHIST TODATE=TODAY TYPE=REMOTE VOLUME=<volname> FORCE=YES
    where <volname> is the name of the failing volume.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All ITSM server users with library sharing.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In certain cases, the OWNER field of a  *
    *                      library volume can be updated to the    *
    *                      name of the library manager.  This can  *
    *                      cause the situation described in the    *
    *                      ERROR DESCRIPTION.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply fixing level when available. This      *
    *                 problem is currently projected to be fixed   *
    *                 in level 5.2.4. Note that this is subject    *
    *                 to change at the discretion of IBM.          *

Problem conclusion

  • The ITSM server will be updated to recognize this special case,
    and it will no longer create volume history entries as
    described in the ERROR DESCRIPTION.
    
    NOTE: The local fix describes a command that should only be
    used if a REMOTE volume no longer has valid data on it and can
    be considered a scratch volume.  Once executed, any server
    could use the volume to overwrite any existing data.  Use
    caution whenever you delete any volume history entry.
    
    Never set the OWNER field of a library volume to the name of
    the library manager.  If you need to swap which server is the
    library manager, make sure all the OWNER fields for each
    library volume is changed appropriately.
