FWD:reclamation of offsite volume
Typically we get this message when one of the primary tapes somehow got into a
strange state, like "unavailable". To find the tape that it ADSM thinks it can't
find, run the "move data" (or even the "move data C00001 preview=yes) command
then look at the activity log to see what tape it errors out on.
If you find that the tape from the primary pool is indeed damaged or missing,
will need to bring the copypool tape back onsite, change it's access to "readw"
then do the "move data".

Subject: reclamation of offsite volume
While doing an offsite, copypool reclamation, I get pages-worth of an
ANR1163W message. The help for this message is:
ANR1163W OFFSITE VOLUME volume name STILL CONTAINS FILES WHICH COULD NOT
EXPLANATION: During processing of a MOVE DATA command or reclamation, the
server determined that the indicated offsite volume contained one or more
that could not be moved. One or more files could not be copied from the
SYSTEM ACTION: None.
USER RESPONSE: Check for messages indicating reasons why files could not
moved. To complete the move operation, you have several options:
o Bring the volume back on site and reissue a MOVE DATA command to
o Make the primary volumes available and reissue a MOVE DATA command to
reclaim the volume.
o Delete the files by using the DELETE VOLUME command.
Following the recommended USER RESPONSEs I;
1) I don't think that I'm supposed to be required to bring a volume back
from offsite to reclaim (move data).
2) How do I find out what the "primary volumes" are so that I can make
3) If I DELETE VOLUME, would I end up "losing" files or would the
be regenerated from within the primary pool via ADSM-magic?
In short, how do I get 2 copies (on-site primary & off-site copy pool) and
make sure that they are in sync??
