RECOVER Utility Issue
Hello DB2 Users



We found a bug in RECOVER Utility.

This is DB2 11 for z/OS NFM.

It is documented in PMR 35740,001,862.



Very Briefly, When you do a Reorg PBG with REORG_DROP_PBG_PARTS is enabled,
Recover to PIT with previous ICs does not work. It works only Recover to
Current.

It is accepted as a defect and there will be a PTF Soon.



In the mean time, as a workaround, when you do a REORG PBG with
REORG_DROP_PBG_PARTS is enabled, Have a FIC immediately afterwards.



FYI,
