Error description

  • The db2ckbkp tool may crash when issued with option -e to
    extract pages from backup or load copy image.
    
    The db2ckbkp has following syntax that one can use to extract
    pages from backup or load image:
    
    db2ckbkp -e BACKUP_IMAGE extractPage.in
    
    The extractPage.in file allows user to specify input for
    db2ckbkp tool.
    
    For example following line allows user to extract 1 page 8136927
    from table space 4 from load copy image (D).
    The value of 12 indicates data type. This 12 means that the page
    is normal data or index page,
    not LOB for which we need to use 14 or LONG for which we need to
    specify 15
    
    D 12 4 8136927 1
    
    If one specifies wrong, non existing value for data type then
    db2ckbkp may crash and produce the core file.
