Error description

  • Starting with DB2 V97 Fix Pack 2 through DB2 V97 Fix Pack 4 the
    following scenario
    fails the backup operation and does not respect the
    DB2_RESTORE_GRANT_ADMIN_AUTHORITIES setting.
    
    Start of scenario:
    
    db2set DB2_WORKLOAD=SAP or db2set
    DB2_RESTORE_GRANT_ADMIN_AUTHORITIES=ON
    
    backup db;
    restore db;
    backup db;
    
    End of scenario
    
    The first connect after a restore operation will issue a grant
    to the authid that performed the restore,
    which translates into writing a log record. This is not be
    allowed during backup.
    
    In this case the first connect after a restore operation
    originates from the backup command.
    

Local fix

  • Connect and disconnect to and from the database before issuing
    the second backup command.
