hi

see the below technote helps you out

Resolution: 
The error message in the DB2 standard output file indicates NetBackup is attempting to load the 64 bit library.  If the server is running the 32 bit version of the NetBackup 32-bit DB2 extension, this error is generated.  Change the backup script to load the 32 bit (nbdb2.sl) library.
