Error description

  • Upgrading database to DB2 V10 and above from DB2 V9.7 or V9.5
    may fail if there is not enough space on the file system to
    accommodate all the active logs files. Previously in the older
    releases active log files were under SQLOGDIR. However, it has
    changed in V10 to LOGSTREAM0000. This results in all the old log
    files getting copied and moved to the new directory, causing
    double the amount of space required. On top of this, a new set
    up log chain is created in LOGSTREAM0000.
    
    The deletion only happens after it gets copied over, thus an
    upgrade could fail if the log files cannot be accommodated.
