Error description

  • The seconds part of the timestamp for the DB2 audit utility
    archived log filename goes up to 60 instead of up to 59.
    
    You may observe archived log files with name like:
    
    db2audit.instance.log.0.20100603105960
    
    ending with 60 (range used 00-60) which is incorrect, 0-59 is
    expected as there are only 60 seconds.
    
    This problem affects only the file naming, not the contents of
    the audited activity which is not affected by this issue. The
    issue can be seen as only cosmetic but it may have an impact on
    the application or utility that handles these files if it
    expects the seconds to be 00-59 as it should be instead of
    00-60.
