APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • SLA allows for archive object storage to be scheduled for
    multiple days in a weekly schedule. UI needs a warning to
    indicate that an archive is a full backup of each object in the
    SLA, and if the archive operating does not finish before the
    next archive operation is started, the second archive operation
    will not start and this could lead to undesirable results.
    

Local fix

  • Schedule archive object storage to be no more than one day a
    week on a weekly schedule.

Problem conclusion

  • The SLA screen has been enhanced to display a warning message if
    multiple days in a weekly schedule have been selected.
    IBM Knowledge Center
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSNQFQ_10.1.7/spp/c_
    spp_to_sp_roadmap.html  is updated with the following:
    Important: Archiving data to tape cannot be run more frequently
    than once a week. Recovery time objectives (RTO) should be
    considered when recovering data from archive copies in your
    disaster recovery action plan. Therefore, for disaster recovery,
    recovering from archive data should only be used as a last
    resort.
