Issue:  

I'm trying to make a change to an existing backup template and am receiving the following message:
Data in DB2BKP is not supported in full screen. Manage with IMPORT/EXPORT.   What does that mean?   I don't see a message number I can look up.

Solution:

The message that template DB2BKP is not supported in full screen, indicates this is a TPI created/managed template (Template Programming Interface).
You need to issue VMBACKUP EXPORT and IMPORT commands to update the template.

Use the VMBACKUP EXPORT command to convert a job template from the VM:Backup internal format to TPI format.
It also copies the converted file from VM:Backup's A-disk to the requesting user ID's A-disk.
The EXPORT command can be used for exception and exclusion files as well.

Example:
vmbackup export db2bkp template
VMBSYS0266I Export of DB2BKP TEMPLATE complete.

Using XEDIT, make the necessary changes to DB2BKP TEMPLATE and then IMPORT the updated template back to VM:Backup.

vmbackup import db2bkp $template (replace
VMBSYS0264I Import of DB2BKP TEMPLATE complete.

Use the VMBACKUP IMPORT command to convert a job template from TPI format to the VM:Backup internal format.
It also copies the converted file from the requesting user ID's A-disk to VM:Backup's A-disk.
The IMPORT command can also be used for exception and exclusion files.
