DESCRIPTION

The db2ed_saveconfig command is used to collect and record configuration information on DB2, Veritas products, and system hardware. Information is gathered in the context of a specified DB2 database.

The utility gathers enough information to allow an administrator to reconstruct a system and database from scratch in the event of a complete system failure. The information collected is in the form of system configuration files and the results of querying the system hardware, Veritas products, and DB2.

The db2ed_saveconfig output displays the location where configuration information has been saved.

System and DB2 configuration information saved to directory:
/tmp/vxdba.DR.1148
