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.
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.
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.
