Enabling Automatic DB2 Database Discovery

Use the Enable Automatic Database Discovery option to automatically discover databases.

DB2 databases are automatically discovered under the following conditions:

  • Discovery is initiated every 168 hours.
  • When the Communications Service (GxCVD) is restarted (for example after a computer reboot).

Enabling automatic database discovery ensures that newly added DB2 databases are regularly included in backups.


  1. From the CommCell Console, expand Client Computers >client.
  2. Right-click the DB2 agent, and then click Properties.

    The Agent Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab, select the Enable Database Discovery check box.
  4. Click OK.
