Old DB2 Logs are not backed up and deleted up by data protector

Hi,  The current DB2 logs are being backed up properly, however it seems that there are few old logs still exists in the log directory and are not being backed up and deleted by Data Protector. Could someone please guide on how these old (previous time stamp than current time stamp) log files can be backed up and cleared from the log directory on the DB2 server.


Please let me know if you need any more information.

Re: Old DB2 Logs are not backed up and deleted up by data protector

Most likely those logs are orphan and Data Protector is not aware of those. Most likely you can just move those files from the log directory. If you have any doubts, ask your DBA.
