Hi All,

I am new to TSM and trying to figure out why my admin schedule is failing continuously. When I queried the event this is what I get.

Schedule Name: <schedule name>
Scheduled Start: 12/10/2015 12:00:00
Actual Start: 12/10/2015 12:00:28
Completed:
Status: Failed
Result: 15
Reason: IO error
In the Activity Log the error it shows as "ANR2752E Scheduled command <schedule name> failed."

Can Some one please help me with this.

Thank You

First, you need to figure out what that schedule does: Q SCHED <schedule name> T=A

Then look in the activity log around the time the schedule is supposed to run to see why the command schedule kicked off failed:
q ac begindate=12/10/2015 enddate=12/10/2015 begintime=12:00:00 endtime=13:00

Then, when you find out what the error code(s) of the failing command, you can look it up using: HELP ANR####E Example: HELP ANR2752E

So there are no scratch media in the library and which is why this session is getting failed continuously, correct??

Correct.

BTW, you should get this corrected, if you go too long without a database backup, the archive log will fill. Once it's full, DB2 will shut down the database which will bring TSM down. The procedure to manually clean the archive log is painful, so best to get scratch tapes in the library and get a successful database backup, even if you have to start it manually.
