Fixed In Version: 389-ds-base-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: When a replication is configured, a replication change log db is also a target of the backup (db2bak and db2bak.pl). Backing up a change log db failed since there was no backend instance associated with a replication change log db. Consequence: Backing up on a server failed if the server hasd a replication change log db. Fix: If a backing up db is a change log db, it skips checking the backend instance is associated with the db or not. Result: Backing up works on a server which has a replication change log db.

This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

We are backing up our database daily with db2bak.pl, and have started to notice the following messages:

Comment 1 Noriko Hosoi 2014-05-16 20:29:05 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. set up MMR
2. run some modify operations to generate a change log db
3. stop a server
4-1. /path/to/db2bak
4-2. /path/to/db2bak -D 'cn=directory manager' -w <pw>
5-1. restore from 4-1.
5-2. start the server and verify the server is healthy.
5-3. stop the server.
6-1. restore from 4-2.
6-2. start the server and verify the server is healthy.
