Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Restore Critical Files [only]

In case of a mistakenly deletion of files in/below the instance home directory of Db2 it should be possible to restore [only] these files/directories etc.

At the moment if files/directories are mistakenly deleted, a complete database restore would be required usually causing a long outage.

    This is probably what I would suggest designing and what I will suggest for this RFE.

    Hello,

    What specifically would you be looking for to restore?

    Think 'it depends!' Restore the critical files to a (empty) supplied path would enable to copy the restored files to the appropriate destination without the risk of accidentially overwriting anything.

    But there are probably different problem scenarios with different solutions.

    What specifically would you be looking for to restore? We have several meta data files and each have subtly different restore semantics based on existing database or not. So how would you want this to work? Restore to the same database or some supplied path so it doesn't necessarily overwrite what may already be there?
