    Hi there,

    due to problems with the TSM journal I searched the web for a utility to check this database.
    I found then a utility "dbviewb_611.exe"...

    When I now place this utility, the tsmjbbd.ini, the dsm.opt and the two journal-files together in one directory and start this utility, I get only the following message displayed:

    Tivoli Storage Manager
    Journal Database Viewing Utility
    Version 6, Release 1, Level 1.0 0
    Last Update: Jan 28 2010

    Reading control record for database 'E:\Journal\tsmE__.jdb.
    jbbdb' ...

    Error 224 opening or reading database.

    I did already all steps as mentioned here:

    IBM seems also have no idea....the only solution I got from there was:

    this is xxxxx yyyyy with Tivoli Storage Manager Level II support and I
    will assist you with the subject PMR.
    If I look up error 224 I get the following explanation by Microsoft:
    net helpmsg 224
    Access Denied. Before opening files in this location, you must first add
    the web site to your trusted sites list, browse to the web site, and select the
    option to login automatically.
    This seems to be an issue with access rights to read the object, do you agree?

    Nice help......:(:mad::confused:

    Yes, I think you should try it before start the daemon, the TSM Journal Service. Probably this service is locking the "database" file.
