    This may occur while defining paths originating from NAS
    datamovers or during  NDMP backup/restore operations.  If an
    NDMP reply message is sent from a NAS device to the Tivoli
    Storage Manager server which contains a zero length list for
    on-line file systems, attached  tape devices or attached media
    changers  this error will occur.
    
    This APAR also affects the undocumented commands SHOW NASD
    <FILER>, SHOW NASI <FILER> or SHOW NASFS <FILER>.
    
    Platforms and versions affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager server 6.1 and 6.2 on Linux, Unix and
    Windows
