Issue/Introduction

It can happen that a DMS MERGE job can issue the following WTOR messages:

...

*IEF233D M 2007,203151,,DMS0200B,MERGE,  730
09.08.57 JOB06901 *TMS009  IEF233D M 2007,203151,,DMS0200B,MERGE,DMS.CONVF.PRIME.DMSN.S2021122.T183212        
   730                     DMS.CONVF.PRIME.DMSN.S2021122.T183212,
   730                     OR RESPOND TO IEF455D MESSAGE
09.08.57 JOB06901 *21 IEF455D MOUNT 203151 ON 2007 FOR DMS0200B MERGE OR REPLY 'NO'

...

where OAM EMC DLM is in place. 

What causes this WTOR on volume 203151 and How to bypass it for MERGE going unattended?

 

Environment

Release : All

Component : CA Disk Backup and Restore

Resolution

These messages are caused by a DELL/EMC  issue (the Virtual Tape Vendor).  

If there is an orphaned lock on involved Tape ( it is 203151 in this case), then it would cause trouble when trying to mount that tape.  

Correcting the lock issue from DELL/EMS side , will also remove the MERGE problem.
