Reference to Case number TS002663644
This is for using "Db2 Recovery Expert disaster recovery feature - Recovering at the remote site using DB2 image copies":
During Disaster Recovery tests some Db2 subsystems found indoubt and inflight threads at Db2 subsystem startup and, as result, some of db2 objects ran on Logical Page List (RW,LPL) status. To fix that we manually ran RECOVERY INDOUBT command to get rid of IMS thread found. DBAs ran idcams to define the underlying VSAM LDS that was missing, ran Db2 command -start db() sp(<spacenam) acc (rw) followed by recovery tablespace utility. These are manual intervention and we are looking a way to avoid those indoubt / inflight threads, thus avoid LPL.
It seems the dRE product currently does a simple -ARCHIVE LOG command during DR prep1 job execution and by adding -ARCHIVE LOG MODE(QUIESCE) in the archive process should help in avoiding those indoubt/inflight threads.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||the customer, since it would be a good feature to provide a consistency of data during recovery process.|
How should it work?
The request for enhancement would be to add another option in the dRE panel to use -ARCHIVE LOG MODE(QUIESCE) TIME(xxx) WAIT(YES) so that the installer would make a decision to what archive log be used by dRE prep 1 job. The TIME and WAIT parameter could have a default value but we should be able to updated that.
|Priority Justification||To provide a consistency of the data when using "Recovering at the remote site using DB2 image copies" dRE feature|
