Abstract

LIC-OTHER-WAIT ASP BALANCE CONFLICTING WITH SAVE OPERATION

Error Description

During a backup, ASP balancing was being performed to balance  
new disks. Some of the data was flagged as preferring to be on  
Solid State Drives (SSD). The save preparation called database  
function to move the data to the SSDs first. The move waits on  
the ASP gate held by the ASP balancing. The gate is not        
released until the ASP balancing completes. The solution is to  
return a Move in Progress response, which Database will need to
handle. This can affect systems that do not have SSDs, as long  
as the data has the media preference for SSDs set.
