Removed unneeded statement to contact HP support

Data protector IDB is split into two parts, MMDB and CDB. MMDB part is holding media information while CDB part catalog information (DCBF files, positions, session information, etc.).

In Data Protector 9.04 this mechanism is not working properly which is causing that CDB records remain in IDB while MMDB records are deleted.


- Old catalog piling up in IDB including DCBFs and session.

- Restore failing when media found in (undeleted) catalog are not found in MMDB.

- Copies are not promoted since the originals are not deleted.


[Major] From: "" Time: 9/4/2015 4:05:13 PM

Medium not found.


All supported Data Protector Cell Manager platforms, patched with Data Protector v. 9.04_b104 are affected.
