Abstract

LIC-UNPRED NEWLY ADDED IASP DRIVES APPEAR TO DRAIN OVER TIME

Error Description

After adding drives to an IASP using the SST option to Add and  
Balance, the new units initially ended up as balance to the    
same percentage used as the old drives in the IASP. However,    
over time, the new drives contain less and less data, while the
old drives fill up.                                            
STRASPBAL *CAPACITY will initially bring them all back to the  
same percent full, but over time they will grow apart.          

Problem Summary

After adding drives to an IASP using the SST option to Add and  
Balance, the new units initially ended up as balance to the same
percentage used as the old drives in the IASP. However, over    
time, the new drives contain less and less data, while the old  
drives fill up.                                                
STRASPBAL *CAPACITY will initially bring them all back to the  
same percent full, but over time they will grow apart.          

Problem Conclusion

The system licensed internal code is changed to correctly link  
the disk units in the internal tables.
