DB2 backup gives errors 6 and 214
Master: 126.96.36.199 running on Windows 2k8
Media Server: 5230 running 2.5.3
Client: 188.8.131.52 on AIX
Anyone sucessfully backing up AIX DB2 with NetBackup?
DB21085I Instance "scpprod" uses "64" bits and DB2 code release "SQL09058" with level identifier "06090107".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v184.108.40.206", "s110603", "IP23263", and Fix Pack "8".
Product is installed at "/opt/IBM/db2/V9.5".
Last Febuarary we started trying to get native DB2 backups to run on this client (they're backed up to disk files now) and actualy got one backup to run. Then several things got in the way until now.
Attempts now give an error 214 on the sub-thread and an error 6 on the main thread. With the help of the DBA (I don't have super user access) I've looked at all the permissions, the log files, and everything else I can find related to this error and still can't seem to figure out what's wrong. This error occurs no matter how the backup is invoked.
Thinking that something might be damaged in the policy that existed since early this year, I deleted it and recreated it...still same error.
The NetBackup DB2 Admin PDF is worse than useless since all it says is "run this wizard and the right policy will be created"...it doesn't give any examples of what the policy should look like after the wizard has run. And there are examples in the Forums of people who ran the wizard for other database types and then had to rename the resulting schedules since the wizard didn't name the correctly in the first place. And the troubleshooting section of the PDF just says "look at these files" rather than "this is what you should be seeing..."
So is it even possible to back up DB2 with NetBackup 7.5 or is it like a few other things that show up in the Marketing Pamphlets but doesn't actually work?
