Error description

  • A backup can fail with an SQL0902C when the container for a
    tablespace was truncated and is smaller than the size of the
    Total Pages*PageSize for that tablespace.
    
    The db2dart tool should detect this level of corruption but
    currently does not.
    

Local fix

  • Use the "truncate" command to extend the tablespace container.
    
    For example, assume a tablespace has a total of 2000 pages and
    has a PageSize of 8K (8192 bytes)..  2000*8192=16384000
    
    So the command to run would be:
    
    truncate --size=16384000 C0000000.LRG
    
    ... where C0000000.LRG is the container file name for the
    tablespace in question.
