Help! Problem With Shared Library Client!
Ok, here is my problem. I have a large shared library that supports 5 TSM servers. All of the TSM servers, save one, run without any problems. The one with problems is pathed to 32 of the 5 drives (they are designated just for its use) and periodically its mount requests go into a RESERVED state but never mount. I have tried FORCESYNC'ing both sides to see if it was communication but that didn't work. I have tried setting paths offline then back online and that didn't work either. The only thing that works is to cycle the TSM server then it comes back up and starts mounting tapes like nothing was wrong. This happens on average every 24-48 hours. This is a large DB client TSM instance so the reboots are hurting critical business apps backups. I don't see any glaring errors in the activity log or in the AIX errpt. Any suggestions would be gladly received.
