APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • On Windows, when specifying storage paths in DB2, if a storage
    path contains a junction (mount) point, DB2 will end up
    obtaining incorrect information about the mounted storage path
    (e.g. incorrect filesystem ID, incorrect storage free space).
    This can result in incorrect storage path information being
    reported in database snapshots taken against databases
    containing such storage paths. The problem stems from how DB2
    gathers this information internally.
