APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Consider the following scenario:
    Your backup has 2 sequences, eg:
    DBNAME.0.db2v1012.DBPART000.20130308155932.001
    DBNAME.0.db2v1012.DBPART000.20130308155932.002
    Now you restore the recovery history file from this backup:
    $ db2 restore db dbname history file from /backup-path taken at
    20130308155932
    As next step you use the restored recovery history file to
    recover the database:
    $ db2 "recover db dbname to end of logs using history file
    (/path/)"
    SQL2036N  The path for the file, named pipe, or device " " is
    not valid.
    The problem does not occur, when the backup only has 1 sequence.
    The error occurs because the restored recovery history file does
    not contain the path to the backup image.
    The history file on disk is ok. Only the restored one has this
    issue.
