Getting Started with DB2


To get started with backing up and restoring DB2 databases in the Command Center, set up the Command Center, complete the database application setup wizard, configure DB2 and create alerts, then perform a test backup and a restore.

Step 1: Set Up the Command Center

Set up the Command Center in your CommCell environment. For more information, see Setting Up the Command Center.

Step 2: Complete the Database Setup Wizard

Configure the database application by completing the Database Setup Wizard.

Step 3: Configure DB2 and Create Alerts

  1. Create a server plan.

    The server plan defines how often the software backs up the database and the log files, and where it stores the backups.

  2. Add a DB2 database server.

  3. Add a DB2 instance.

  4. Add DB2 databases to the instance, by using either DB2 database discovery or by manually adding DB2 databases.

  5. Add a DB2 subclient.

  6. Optional: Create alerts to receive automatic notifications about operations, such as failed jobs.

Step 4: Perform a Test Backup and Restore

  1. Back up the databases.

  2. Restore the databases.

Step 5: Add Additional Subclients

Add additional subclients for content that you need to protect on a separate schedule.
