ANR4588E A database backup configuration might be incorrect.



The issue is as follows:
* Online database backups not working
* actlog messages (in order):
ANR2280I Full database backup started as process 2
ANR8340I FILE volume T:\DBBACKUP\29086175.DBV mounted
ANR0513I Process 2 opened output volume T:\DBBACKUP\29086175.DBV
ANR1360I Output volume T:\DBBACKUP\29086175.DBV opened
ANR4626I Database backup will use 1 streams for processing with the number originally requested 1
ANR4588E A database backup configuration might be incorrect
ANR8531W Deletion of FILE volume T:\DBBACKUP\29086175.DBV from file system did not complete successfully (1KB .dbv files are left behind every failed db backup attempt)
ANR1361I Output volume T:\DBBACKUP\29086175.DBV closed
ANR0515I Process 2 closed volume T:\DBBACKUP\29086175.DBV
ANR0985I Process 2 for Database Backup running in the BACKGROUND completed with completion state FAILURE
ANR1893E Process 2 for Database Backup completed with a completion state of FAILURE
* db2diag errors when the dbbackup failed:
Vendor error: rc = 30 returned from function sqluvint.
Return_code structure from vendor library C:\PROGRA~1\Tivoli\TSM\db2\bin\db2tsm.dll
Media controller -- Generic error
SQL2079N An error was reported by the shared library "". Return code: ""
SQL2079N An error was reported by the shared library "C:\PROGRA~1\Tivoli\TSM\db2\bin\db2tsm.dll". Return code: "30"

Things tried/checked:
* Offline db backup works
* Everything (db2diag log message, actlog message, trace logs) match exactly as described here: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg22009265 but the solution did not work (used dsmcutil as dsmsutil was unavailable)
* The server was not accessed (no updates, no client install/reinstall etc) at the time the issue occurred
* Tried upgrading the client on the TSM server from 8.1.2 to 8.1.4 with no change in the issue
* Double-checked everything here: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGSG7_7.1.6/srv.install/t_srv_prep_dbmgr-windows.html, db2set and windows environment variables seem to be correct when compared to working system with same versioned setup
* No issues with permissions, double-checked and tested permissions with db2 and tsm service account to archlog, archlog failover, db and database backup directories
* There are plenty of free space for the archlog, archlog failover, db, database backup destination
* NTFS seems to be clean on all directories, checked with chkntfs
* Database backup devclass max file size is more than 3x the database size
* Everything else seems to be working (file based backups, vm backups, volhistory and defconfig file backups with admin schedule)

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks In Advance.
