Error description

  • db2relocatedb or db2inidb ... relocate using <relocate.conf>
    might construct wrong container path name(s).
    
    This issue can happen under the following sceanrio:
    
    You might have one or more tablespace(s) that contains a mix of
    DMS and Automatic Storage managed containers. This can happen
    because that tablespace was later altered to be MANAGED BY
    AUTOMATIC STORAGE. But you haven't done the rebalance yet.
    
    And
    
    You try to relocate the container paths of such a tablespace
    using the CONT_PATH and STORAGE_PATH clause in the relocate
    config file.
    
    The relocate will run successfully but you might end up with
    wrong (corrupted) container path names. This will also cause
    tablespace activation issues like tablespace state going offline
    and invalid container tag id's. The issue is only with the DMS
    container path names, but not the Automatic Storage container
    path names.
    

Local fix

  • Run ALTER TABLESPACE ... REBALANCE before the relocatedb step
