Issue of DB2 backup with Commvault


We are using DB2 9.7 with SAP ECC 6.0 EHP5 on AIX 6.1

We have taken Commvault 9 as our backup tool. But we are facing problem while taking online backup with Commvault.

Although we can take offline backup smoothly. And also we can run SAP online backup with DB13 successfully when the we chose "Backup to device".

But when we chose "Backup to Vendor Library", the backup fails with following error message...

We give path of vendor library as "/opt/simpana/Base64/libDB2sbt.s"

Error Message:

11:04:29 Backup_Vend: SQL Message: SQL2071N An error occurred while accessing the shared

11:04:29 Backup_Vend: library "/opt/simpana/Base64/". Reason code: "1 row=1

11:04:29 REASON=ADBC error

Techies plz help to resolve the issue, even Commvault support has run out of support for this issue.

Thank you.

    Hi Krishna,

    Refer the link below

    Section AIX

    Patch 34059 Base0 Client, Media Explorer, 1. Restores may fail from Variable Content Alignment enabled backups.

    2. Dedupe not working for Synthetic Full backups

    3. DB2 Backup fails with library load error on AIX.

    It implies a bug fix is available for commonvault 9.0 on AIX.

    Hope this resolves your issue.

    Please check the shared library is accessible /opt/simpana/Base64/ and has the required permission . Also check the name of the library file is correctly mentioned along with the path in the configuration file.
