Using DB2 to perform a restore
The exact process for recovering a DB2 database differs from site to site depending on the following: the methods that are used for backing up the archive logs, the settings that are used in the NetBackup for DB2 configuration file, db2.conf, and the location of the archive logs.
The following procedures show how to restore an example database to the level of a recent database backup plus archive logs:
See Recovering a DB2 database - Simplest case.
Use this procedure if the archive logs are in an accessible location and they were all created with the same parameters in db2.conf.
See Recovering a DB2 database - Restoring archive logs.
This case is more complex. Use this procedure if you have to browse for archive logs and restore them from secondary storage.
For more information on how to recover a DB2 database, see your DB2 documentation.
