Error description

  • DB2 does not archive logs after changing from LOGRETAIN to DISK
    until the database is recycled and this may cause a hang
    situation.
    
    when DB2 hits a disk full issue with LOGRETAIN on, changing from
    LOGRETAIN to DISK cannot make DB2 start to archive logs until db
    is recycled.
    
    The disk full issue may cause dual log array full,  so you can
    see the following message indicating the problem that dual log
    array is full and DB2 does not archive logs.
