Modifying the DB2 Audit Error Path
When you install the DB2 Agent, you specify the parent path where the software stores the archive files, audit error log files, and files that are used in the DB2 recovery process.
When you use the VENDOR library for log archival, the software stores the offset log files in this location. The software automatically cleans up any offset file that is not accessed in 4 days.
Offset log files are index files that contain information about the backed up DB2 logs, for example, the chain number and offset media. The information in these files improves the restore job performance.
Use this procedure to change the DB2 audit error path after you install the DB2 Agent.
Note: In a multi-instance and multi-database configuration, you can configure multiple archive paths by configuring this additional setting for each instance and database.
- To the DB2 client, add the additional setting as shown in the following table.
For instructions on how to add additional settings from the CommCell Console, see Adding or Modifying Additional Settings from the CommCell Console.
- If the configuration includes only one database, in the Name box, type sDB2_AUDIT_ERROR_PATH.
- If the configuration includes multiple instances or multiple databases, in the Name box, type <db2 instance name>_<db name>_sDB2_AUDIT_ERROR_PATH.
Note: The DB2 instance name (db2_instance_name) and the DB2 database name (db_name) must be in upper case.
