    Unanswered: Question regarding Recovery History File

    Hi All,
    My db db2V9.5,Aix 5.3
    I have a question regarding the Recovery History File.
    when i did a:
    list history backup all for db <database_name>

    i am seeing only information realated to restores and offline database backups and the online backup entries i am seeing are from after last offline backup.
    for example:
    if i took offline backup on sep 1st
    i am able to see the online backups entries after sep 1st.
    i am seeing restore entries even from 2007 november.
    but i am not able to see the online backup entries before sep 1st even though we took online backups.
    i am seeing the offline backups taken before sep 1st
    and we have (REC_HIS_RETENTN) = 366
    (NUM_DB_BACKUPS) = 365
    and we almost take full online backup every day.

    why i was not able to see the online backup entries in Recovery History file which were taken after an offline backup?

    any help is appreciated

    I would be curious to see what you get from using SQL to query the Admin View:

    I find that reading the output of LIST HISTORY very difficult. But seeing it in tabular form from a query is much easier.
