I have had the same problem reading from replicated Data domain file
devices on my DR server.  Update the file volumes to read-only.  I run a
macro to do this, takes 10-25 minutes.

Before logging a call I thought I would see if anyone else has seen this


System details:

TSM Server 5.5..5.2, two replicating Data Domain DD880's. 

Backup data and TSM DB's are replicated from production data center to
DR site.

Cold stand-by TSM servers are recovered using replicated DB backups.



During disaster recovery restore testing client files fail to restore
due to a mount failed/access denied issue on the virtual volume (file

I have noticed that it only appears to be an issue with accessing
volumes that are in a state of "filling".


The restore mounts other "full" and "DB" volumes with no problems.


The TSM servers in production and DR use a local admin account (windows)
to run the TSM Server service, and the account is duplicated on the
DD880's with admin rights.
