Error description

  • To improve the db2cklog tool to provide further diagnostic
    information, ie: it will display the last log file that was
    written to - this is important for servicability.  It's also an
    important piece of info that customers would like to see, but
    currently they need to start the database and get this info via
    db2pd.
    
    Change directory to location of Database Control files and then
    look to run:
    
    $ db2cklog check -m

              The db2cklog tool is a utility can be used to test the
    integrity
            of an archive log file and to determine whether or not
    the log file
                      can be used in the rollforward database
    command.
