APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • IBM Spectrum Protect Plus supports the backing of its catalog to
    object storage or vSnap targets.   The catalog backup status
    widget on the Dashboard and Policy Overview screens will only
    report proper status of catalog backups to vSnap targets.  For
    IBM Spectrum Protect Plus deployments that rely on catalog
    backups to object storage, catalog backup status reported on
    Dashboard and Policy Overview screens will be incorrect.
    
    
    Versions affected: IBM Spectrum Protect Plus 10.1.12
    

Local fix

  • IBM Spectrum Protect Plus catalog backup jobs are reported on
    the Jobs and Operations Job History tab.   The status of catalog
    backups to object storage can be determined by the status of the
    catalog backup job.
