Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
When upgrading DB2 LUW from V10.5 to V11.5, restore got hung after processing 830G [ full backup data ] without any messageDB2 Support team was contacted to troubleshoot the issue, finally, it appeared to be an file lock issue, DB2 appeared to be...
Verify OVERFLOWLOGPATH is valid at the BEGINNING and allow override in RESTORE DATABASE command.
When restoring a DB2/LUW database Db2 currently restores the database and then abneds if the OVERFLOWLOGPATH is invalid. A restore can take many hours and having the restore fail at the end of the restore wastes all those hours.
Allow to access a database during a pause in a roll forward
During a roll forward, it will be helpful to access the database in read mode in order to identify the point where to open the database. If it is not the desired point, then apply more logs, until find the desired point.
Usually our Db2 backups to TSM are performed using parallelism, sometimes up to parallelism 10.
Occasionally we restore a Db2 system in another operating center from where we have no access to the TSM server.
In the source environment the Db2 back...
BACKUP command option: ALL TABLESPACES EXCEPT (tablespace-name)
Customer has a huge number of tablespaces (f.e. 10000) and wants to do a tablespace backup of all tablespaces except of for example 3 tablespaces.
We would like to do the following:
$ db2 BACKUP DB myDB ALL TABLESPACES EXCEPT (unnecessary...
In a shared instance, (multiple DBs serving different applications) its almost impossible to DROP a database, without having to shutdown the entire Instance.
In order to drop the database, it must be deactivated, otherwise it fails.
Actually we need to define some environment variables like DSMI_DIR, DSMI_CONFIG to implement a TSM backup. So in case we forget to configure this at first moment we will need to do an instance restart. Would be better to consider some dynamic par...
Support AWS IAM Roles with Remote Object Storage using AWS S3 Storage for Backups and Archive Logs
AWS promotes usage of IAM Roles (an AWS construct) for managing access to shared S3 object storage across many EC2 Instances. This is the recommended approach for managing backup images and archive logs. With the added support of S3 remote stora...
Add NEWMIRRORLOGPATH option to the restore command
This should be a fairly simple change/addition and prevent the possibilty that the mirrorlogs end up in the old databases mirrorlogpath by misstake or during the time it takes for the administrator to do the change manually, since the change will ...
