Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
Support log switch under SET WRITE SUSPEND EXCLUDE LOGS
Today Db2 cannot switch to a log file while write suspend. Therefore a archive log gets performed at beginning of write suspend. Then the write suspend can only last and the database can only work until 1 log file gets full. The time a database is...
To detect as early as possible that there are storage issues or file system issues in log dir, checking the checksum of log files during log archival would help to identify issues early, fix the issue and allow to take a new backup to get database...
Remove EACCES errors when restoring into different instance on same machine
When restoring a database without automatic storage with redirected restore on a machine where the former tablespace paths exist (but are owned by another UID) the redirected restore generates multiple "EACCES (13) PERMISSION DENIED ERRORS" within...
db2 backup instance use snapshot wanted We have more then one database in an instance and the current implementation of db2 backup database use snapshot can not handle that. We want to make a snapshot for all databases in an instance and preferabl...

Current product limitation don't allow to restore an online database backup that were taken with a older Db2 level than the on of the Db2 instance . Our production environement must be available on a 24x7 basis and this limitation is a serious lim...
DB2 should use the HWM value instead of total allocation for restores on AUTO storage dbs
This is general problem for db2 restore with automatic storage environments. The redirected restore requires total space allocated on source DB tablespaces instead of traditional HWM space requirements. This increases the space requirements on the...
Db2 Houskeeping of combination of Snapshot Backups and TSM Backups
At the moment Db2 supports housekeeping of backups by DB configuration parameters rec_his_retent and num_db_backups. These parameters are used by the customer for years for Db2 TSM backups. Both parameters are set to a value of 8 - ensuring more t...
