Symptoms

There are situations when the backup information between RMAN catalog and Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) is not in sync. Hence there are backup pieces found in TSM catalog which are not available in RMAN catalog or vice versa.

There is a need here to release the tapes for recycling by removing irrelevant or unwanted backup pieces from them as well as synchronize the RMAN catalog with TSM catalog.
