We recently added a new technical library to Service Management Connect. The purpose of the technical library is to provide our users with professionally written technical articles to assist our users with the implementation and usage of our products. The most recent article published describes how to use Tivoli Storage Manager to back up and recover a DB2 database. Here's the overview of what you'll find in that article:
