  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The db2med process is spawned by the backup and restore
    utilities. It interacts with the media where the backup image is
    stored. This process loads and executes the client library code
    (TSM Client API for example).
    .
    If db2med coredumps, it does generate a trap file before
    terminating, however it does not produce a core file, which
    could be necessary to investigate the root cause of the process
    abend.
    .
    The fix will modify the signal handling for the db2med process
    such that it generates a core file during abnormal termination.
    .
    Note that this APAR does not address the db2med abend as this
    could have various reasons, including issues with the third
    party vendor code used for backup/restore, but improves ability
    to perform PD/PSI.
