Using the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface to browse DB2 resources
The Backup, Archive, and Restore interface displays the DB2 resource. You can browse the DB2 resources through four levels: instance, database, partition, and tablespace. You can view the containers in a tablespace, but you can select for restore only at the tablespace level or the partition level.
You can also use the DB2 LIST HISTORY command to browse backup images.
This interface does not let you browse previous backups. Instead, it browses the existing DB2 instances and databases. You can select these DB2 objects and use the NetBackup for DB2 recovery wizard to prepare recovery templates for the objects.
The following shows a sample restore window in the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface for UNIX and for Windows.
In this example, the DB2 resource is expanded down to the tablespace level. You can select for restore one or more tablespaces, one or more partitions, or one entire database (by selecting all of its partitions).
