I am using Avamar 7.1.
Our daily schedule online db2 database backups are failing to Avamar with
"SQL2428N The BACKUP did not complete because one or more of the requested log files could not be retrieved."
A thread here suggested below
Set in the option/flagfile the following variable:
Note: if the archivelog DB2 needs was done 4 hours ago then the variable can be set to 5 hours ago
Where do I set the option? I am facing the same issue and when entered that as free form in the GUI for backup it fails with invalid flag.
Any help is appreciated
This flag can be set into avdb2.cmd under the avs/var directory.
I saw this issue when the log is set to archive automatically. Once the log is backed up, it will be removed from DB2 server. When an online backup is taken, it will retrieve the logs from Avamar. For some reasons, DB2 takes too much time to retrieve the logs and it will result in this issue.
A workaround will be to turn off the log exit.
