SNAPSHOT - recovery options
Have you looked into using DFSMS to do your backups? DB2V5/OS390 has a
direct hook into DFSMS which allows for a SNAPSHOT-like backup, while also
recording the backup information within DB2. So your backups will run very
fast and you still would have the recovery flexibility of using either DB2
utilities or a DFSMS restore.
