DB2 Backup Administrator Guide

The DB2 Backup Administrator Guide is for backup administrators responsible for:

  • Installing and upgrading the DB2 Agent.

  • Configuring DB2 databases in the CommCell environment.

  • Determining the storage device for backups as well as how long data is stored.

  • Determining the data to be backed up and configuring the subclients in the CommCell for the data.

  • Backing up and restoring the data. This guide focuses on procedures performed using the CommCell Console, but also includes DB2 command line for procedures.

  • Configuring database administrators, which includes a CommCell Console user and user permissions.

A knowledge of DB2 backup and restore operations and the DB2 command line interface is required for this guide.
