Error Input volumes sequence number

I see the following as I try to restore a TSM DB at V5.5.5. Yes it is old but the customer says that the few boxes of tapes that I have are definitely TSM DB Backup tapes from their vault.
I do notice that the sequence number of the volumes is high.
I am doing a restore by volume and not using the volhist file.

Any one have any ideas on this?

Hi,

Will that volume may have been a DB backup tape at one time, but it is unlikely a DB backup tape now. At V5 there was a command to read the tape label and report if the volume was a DB backup.

With the TSM server halted (if your just testing tapes) Or if the TSM is already down due to a problem, do this command:

dsmserv display dbbackupvolume devclass=lto volumenames=003111L3, 003112L3, 003113L3

You need to use the devclass in the devconfig file for your LTO tape. If your devconfig file has the library inventory set correctly, TSM will load each tape into a drive and read off the DB information -- if they are DB tapes.

Example:
Date/Time: 04/07/2008 13:16:43
Volume Type: BACKUPFULL
Backup Series: 7
Backup Operation: 0
Volume Seq: 1
Device Class: LTO

I hope this is helpful.

Thank you for the reply. I went through approximately 90 volumes and the second to last volume I looked at was a TSM DB Backup volume. I restored from there. Now I am trying to read the volumes and restore data and I get:
10/06/2015 10:49:19 ANR1330E The server has detected possible corruption in an
object being restored or moved. The actual values for the
incorrect frame are: magic 53454652 hdr version 0002 hdr
length 0032 sequence number 00000400 data length
0003FFB0 server id 00000000 segment id 0000000119507687
crc 00000000. (SESSION: 179, PROCESS: 13)
10/06/2015 10:49:19 ANR1331E Invalid frame detected. Expected magic 53454652
sequence number 00000001 server id 00000000 segment id
0000000118069078. (SESSION: 179, PROCESS: 13)

This is becoming a pain. It says the data is there but now says there is corruption. Once again thanks.

Looks like you're on your way. The unable to read the frame header is likely damaged data on that tape. If this was a primary pool tape that had a copy pool, then you would be able to attempt a restore from the copy pool tape.

Here is the command to see if the damaged object is in a copy pool:
Query CONtent volume_name DAmaged=Yes COPied=Yes

Also, this will only list files if you attempted the restore and TSM marked the object damages and if that damaged file is in a copy pool.

I also use the SHOW DAMAGED stg_pool_name to determine if there is damage out there. Thank you for your feed back.
SHOW DAMAGED only works to show you files already identified as damaged either by a read failure during normal operations or by an audit volume.

:) yep that is a good command, but keep in mind that it does not tell you if you have a good copy to restore from.

This command will let you know if your Copy Pool is missing any objects:

Query CONtent volume_name DAmaged=ANY COPied=No (ANY is default so no need to have it in the command)
