APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The 'db2audit' program with the 'extract' option might fail with
    message AUD0003N:
    
      db2audit extract syslog news.info tag DB2 from files
    db2audit.*.20151015*
      AUD0003N  I/O error on accessing "", make sure the
    directory/file exists and has the right permission.
      AUD0001N  Operation failed.
    

Local fix

  • - 1 - Run 'db2audit extract' more often so that ideally we don't
    have more than
          'ulimit -n (nofile)' messages to extract.
    
    - 2 - Increase 'ulimit -n (nofile)'.
    
    A combination of both could be used of course.
