Registry variable New behavior
Ability for restore to fail on a table space container error

By default, any table space container error during a restore operation is ignored while the operation continues on the remaining set of table spaces. The registry variable DB2_FAIL_RECOVERY_ON_TABLESPACE_ERROR has been updated to include restore and can be set to cause the restore operation to fail on any table space container error.

For more information, refer to DB2_FAIL_RECOVERY_ON_TABLESPACE_ERROR.
