I'm farily new to TSM and am having some issues pulling tapes from scratch. When doing any operation that requires a scratch volume, the same error occurs. It doesn't matter if it's a 'BACKUP DB' or one of the storage pools running out of space, the same thing occurs.
Hi Donald,I'm having a bit of difficulty understanding the problem that you're having. What is the error that you are getting when an operation or backup/archive session requires a scratch volume? You should be able to see the error in the activity log.To view the last 10 minutes of the activity log, use the following command:query actlog begint=-00:10
Your problem statement is not clear please share the output of q actlog se=nodename begintime=-24.
Please share the log of last 24 hours and additionally I am assuming where you are facing issue that is windows operating system please go to below path and share the error log file of dsmerror.log and dsmsched.log.
Check Your stgpool settings for Maximum scratch vs. used scratch. You may have to increase the maxscratch value.
