    QUESTION:

    I am receiving a reason code 3 in the 'Defer Reas' (Deferred Copy Throttle Reasons) column of the TSHHSM view. When using the F1 HELP feature on this column, there is no information for a Reason Code 3.

    What is a Reason Code 3 and why does the HELP feature not include information for the Reason Code 3?

    EXAMPLE:
    Help      Deferred Copy Throttle Reasons      Help
    Command ==>                        Scroll ==> PAGE
    --------------------------------------------------
    This field indicates the reasons for deferred copy
    throttling during the interval.                   
      00 No throttling during the interval            
      01 Preferring Host I/O                          
      02 Cluster resource usage                       
      04 Immediate copy throttling                    
                                                      


    ANSWER:

     

    There is no information for a Reason Code 3, because IBM does not define that return code.

      

    IBM states that "All other values are reserved", which can be found on page 42 of the following white paper:

      

    IBM® TS7700 Series Statistical Data Format

      

    White Paper

      

    Version 4.0a


    In the near future, BMC will be adding a reason code 03 to the HELP feature with the reason of
     'All other values are reserved', as stated by IBM.
