Validation of logs stored in Storage Protect (TSM)

Our databases are backed up regulary directly in Storage Protect (aka TSM). Due to the requirements of our auditing department, we need to check Db2 backups and transaction logs regularly to ensure that they are usable in the event of a recovery.

... Db2 backups stored in Storage Protect (TSM) can be verified by "db2adutl ... verify full ..."

... Db2 transaction logs must first be reloaded to disk and can only then be checked with db2cklog

It would help us, if the transaction logs can also be checked via "db2adutl ... verify ..."

Verify archive logs from TSM server using db2adutl

I do not see an option to verify the archive logs directly on TSM storage server. db2adutl can query(list) the archive logs but can't verify it.As opposed to it, db2adutl can verify Full, incremental and delta backups stored on TSM server.
