Redirecting a restore of DB2 data


Redirecting a restore of DB2 data

The instance that you are redirecting DB2 data to must already exist. Backup Exec does not create a new instance.

You cannot redirect restores of the DMS containers or SMS containers in the following situations:

  • You redirect a database restore to another database.

  • You select a database that does not exist.

To redirect a restore of DB2 data

  1. Create a restore job.

    See Restoring DB2 data.

  2. After you select options on the Restore Job Properties dialog box for DB2, on the properties pane, under Destination, click DB2 Redirection.

  3. Select the appropriate options.

    See DB2 redirection options.

  4. Start the redirected restore job or select other restore options from the properties pane.

    After the restore job is complete, Symantec recommends that you run a full backup of the restored data.
