NetApp Filer TOC Issue
I thought I would pass along a notice that we have been informed of a problem with TOC file corruption on NetApp filers that have files with dates before Jan. 1, 1970, and after Jan. 19, 2038. Somehow it causes the TOC backup to abend. It also looks like the TOC can be corrupted when the bitfile in which the TOC file is stored is damaged. If this is the case and the corruption is recent it is possible that the TOC is undamaged on the copypool and could possibly be used for the restore. If the TOCs are unavailable then file level restore will need the absolute path to succeed.
