The name of the shared resource tree.

Operating System

The operating system of the shared resource tree.


The state of a shared resource tree can be any of the following:

  • READY. Ready for use. It can be copied, deleted, modified, or allocated to a restore task.

  • LOCKED_READ. Locked against modification because it is in the process of being copied. This SRT may be allocated to a restore task. It cannot be copied, deleted, or modified until the lock is released.

  • LOCKED_WRITE. Locked against all use because it is in the process of being created or modified. No operations can be performed on this SRT until the lock is released.

  • BAD. Unusable and cannot be repaired. For example, a boot server crashes in the middle of an SRT deletion. Deletion is the only operation that is allowed on the SRT.

  • DAMAGED. Unusable, but it may be possible to repair it. An SRT operation was interrupted before it finished, such as when you cancel the bmrsrtadm command using Ctrl+c and leave the SRT on the server. You can try to repair a damaged SRT (UNIX or Linux), or you can delete it.
