Error description

  • The db2support tool might not collect db2diag.n.log in the
    DIAGPATH if no "db2diag.log" exists on the path.
    The following scenario illustrates how the problem happens.
    
    1. Update DIAGSIZE and DIAGPATH.
    
    $ db2 attach to <instance_name>
    $ db2 update dbm cfg using DIAGSIZE 10
    $ db2 update dbm cfg using DIAGPATH /work/db2dump
    
    2. Run db2support to collect diagnostics.
    
    $ db2support . -f
    
    The db2support.zip file does not contains DB2DUMP directory.
    

Local fix

  • Please create "db2diag.log" file in the DIAGPATH.
    For example:
    $ touch <diag_path>/db2diag.log
    If the file already exists please use the same command to change
    the creation timestamp of the file to the current time.
