8.1.6.0 woes
October 15, 2018 07:59AM
Just putting it out there.

We upgraded our SP servers to 8.1.6.0 and now all our file pools with
deduplication are corrupt. Several systems all running AIX.

Hi Hans,

Did IBM support report that this is a known issue?

Stefan

Not a known issue. The PMR was submitted last Thursday and it was
transferred to L2 today.

Hi Hans, Stefan, and everyone,

Spectrum Protect development has identified this issue. The 8.1.6.0
servers can fail to read from sequential media storage pools under some
circumstances. Please contact IBM support and an efix can be provided
which resolves this issue. The 8.1.6.0 code will be replaced on the FTP
site and FixCentral with a patched version, this is expected to be updated
before the end of the week. And the 8.1.6.0 version in PPA will be
updated in the next couple weeks as well.

Thanks,
Colin

We had the same issue after upgrade from 8.1.5.100 to 8.1.6.0 with the
ANR1330E and ANR1331E errors. We installed efix 6.1.6.006 which was
supposed to fix the issue, but it doesn't.

Support told us to do and audit volume on all affected volumes after the
restart with the efix. After that a backup stg or a space reclamation
would show the same errors as before.

Hi Colin.

why doesn't IBM pull the code immediately when it is evident there is
serious problems with it? We have been fully occupied with this mess for
the last 3 weeks.

Stefan,

If you are not getting the response you need, raise the severity/priority
of the support case.
