Keywords for the db2.conf file
The db2.conf file provides definitions NetBackup uses to perform DB2 backup and restore operations.
Each definition is a grouping of keyword value pairs.
Each definition contains an OBJECTTYPE keyword and value.
Each definition ends with the ENDOPER keyword.
All other keyword value pairs are optional, depending on the OBJECTTYPE.
Within a definition, the keyword value pairs can appear in any order.
The keywords are not case-sensitive, but the values are case-sensitive.
When a pound character (#) appears in the first column, the line is treated as a comment.
Backup and restore operations have two definitions, one for OBJECTTYPE DATABASE or TABLESPACE and one for OBJECTTYPE ARCHIVE.
Restore operations to a different instance or database (not the original) must also have a definition for OBJECTTYPE ALTERNATE.
NetBackup searches the file from top to bottom and uses the first definition that is found for the operation being performed. Later definitions for the same operation are ignored.
NetBackup searches each definition from top to bottom and uses the first value specified for each keyword found. Later definitions for the same keyword are ignored.
