DB2 should allow offloaded backup of SMS tablespace to Tivoli FlashCopy Manager
I have an AVP customer who has a 3TB database upgraded from DB2 v8.x. Most user data tables are in SMS tablespaces. They wish to use Tivoli FlashCopy Manager to take database backup and reduce the time for database restore. However, for SMS tablespaces, db2 cannot create offloaded backup by mounting the snapshot itself and running db2's backup utility. This limit should be removed in order to enable Tivoli FlashCopy Manager take offloaded backups of SMS tablespaces.
