Limitations and Considerations

Before you back up IBM Db2 databases, consider the following prerequisites:

  • If you reconfigured the logarchmeth1 parameter, IBM Db2 switches the database into the BACKUP_PENDING state. To resolve this, you must perform a full offline backup of database. After offline backup is created, you can delete the backup file and back up database online.
  • If you plan to back up databases with the HADR replication, make sure that HADR is set up and initialized for all databases you want to protect. For details, see this IBM article.
