VLDB Strategy for historcal databases using RP for time segmentation

We have many VLDB (100tb) databases that are created in a historical design using RPs. We would like to just backup and restore the latest dates or tablespaces. It a diaster recovery scnario, we would like to restore the latest TS's in a descendin...

Logical Backup

Create “loadable” files foe objects rather than table space dumps. Only base table contents, no indexes

Faster TSP recovery

TS recovery is doable but not trusted due to cross TS dependecies and various log related dependencies. A TS recovery is not as isolated as it appers and is complicated at restore time as you then find out all the interdependencies of a TS restore...

Avoid SQL1246N for incremental backup

This sqlcode SQL1246N is send by DB2 during an incremental backup each time a new tablespace has been created and no full backup of this tablespace has been done. It shoud be more interesting to switch automatically for this tablespace from the in...

Restore from an inline load copy in replace mode

Restore from an inline load copy in replace mode. Currently, we are obliged to restore from the backup first and after to rollforward so that the load backup were used. It makes sense for a load in insert mode, but for a load in replace mode, it i...
