IC84212: AUTOMATIC BACKUP IMAGES CANNOT BE PRUNED IF THE DATABASE WAS ACTIVATED WITH THE ALIAS NAME

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The automatic backup images cannot be pruned if the database was
    activated with the alias name.
    The backup image has the database name in its file name. When a
    database is activated with its alias name, the backup image will
    have the db alias in its name. As the PRUNE would use the real
    db name, these backups won't get pruned. We will fix this for
    automatic backups to make sure that these images get pruned
    automatically.
    

Local fix

  • Active database explicitly with database name and not with
    alias name.
