Hi all,

Why would a talespace that has been loaded remain in backup pending state even after a database backup has been taken. I did not take a standard backup to disk or TSM but rather did a backup to /dev/null. Otherwise the backup reported success. When I did a list tablespace show detail, I received the following:

ablespace ID                        = 6
 Name                                 = TS8K_DATA_IDX
 Type                                 = Database managed space
 Contents                             = All permanent data. Regular table space.
 State                                = 0x0020
   Detailed explanation:
     Backup pending


 Tablespace ID                        = 21
 Name                                 = TS8K_DATA1 Type                                 = Database managed space
 Contents                             = All permanent data. Regular table space.
 State                                = 0x0020
   Detailed explanation:
     Backup pending
 Total pages                          = 10495020


Can somebody please explain what could be the reason for this.

Thanks

Hi Enyimba,

I've never tried to back up a database to /dev/NULL so it's possible that DB2 doesn't consider that a real backup.

Is this a production database where log recovery would be critical?  If not, you should be able to clear this condition by setting LOGARCHMETH1 and LOGARCHMETH2 to OFF.  Both are database configuration parameters.

kdo,

No, this is development database. I'll try to do a real backup and see what happens.
