This backup has been performed with a later client than the configuration would suggest

It is possible for both Recover Now & DR Simulation recoveries to fail due to the Spectrum Protect (TSM) BA Client having been updated to a later version and ‘tbmrcfg.exe’ not having been run to detect the change in TSM BA Client.

The VA will inform you that the recovery has failed and that you need to examine the logs.

When examining the logs (CrmCmd.log) you will locate the following message:

: COut::ErrMsg : strMsg = "This backup has been performed with a later client than the configuration would suggest.
Please repeat the recovery with ‘Tools’ -> ‘Advanced Options’ -> ‘Use latest B/A client’ selected.”

The message can also be seen on the console screen of the Target PE5 enviroment as "This backup has been performed with a later client than the configuration would suggest.
Please repeat the recovery with ‘Tools’ -> ‘Advanced Options’ -> ‘Use latest B/A client’ selected.”

Current Work Around
The user would need to run the Automatic Recovery wizard directly from the Target system after first performing the following steps from the Main Recovery screen

  1. Click the ‘tools’ button
  2. Select the ‘Advance options’ radio button and click Start
  3. Tick the selection box ‘ ‘Use latest B/A client’ and then click OK
  4. Click the Close button on the ‘Tools Window’

The Target is now configured to perform an Automatic Recovery
