Creating DB2 templates or scripts for a DB2 EEE environment
Templates and scripts operate on a single NetBackup client. If your EEE/DPF environment spans multiple computers, create at least one template or script for each computer.
For example, assume your database spans two hosts, and host H1 contains partition P1, and host H2 contains partitions P2 and P3.
You need at least two templates, as follows:
One template for partition P1 on host H1
One template for partitions P2 and P3 on host H2.
Proper backup and restore of the catalog partition is the user's responsibility. Generally, it is recommended that the catalog partition is the first node backed up and the first partition restored. For more information, see your DB2 documentation.
Information is available on how to create backup templates and how to create recovery templates.
Roll-forward recovery to a point-in-time (PIT) is not supported. DB2 requires that PIT recovery runs the same operation for all partitions and tablespaces on all computers. Templates do not span computers.
