Pinned topic DB2, TSM API, deltas and ad-hoc full backups

‏2013-04-02T14:21:32Z |

We have a working TSM backup solution whereby we do a full DB backup via the TSM API once a week on Sunday and incremental deltas every other night.

If I do an ad-hoc online backup to local storage on a weekday, how (if at all) does this affect the TSM incremental delta that night? Does it do the incremental from the last TSM backup, or from the ad-hoc local backup?

    I don't think the destination of the backup matters; a delta backup is based on the previous successful backup.
