    Cancel the current rollforward operation, then roll forward to a point in time _before_ the missing log.
    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    Not that I can think of.

    Try using the NO RETRIEVE option on the rollforward and rollforward to the minimum time possible. To find the minimum time possible, rollforward to 1950-01-01... and DB2 will tell you the minimum time possible.

    The above suggestion assumes you have at least one log file available, but maybe not the one that DB2 is asking for.

    Thanks for the reply, ive tried your solutions and still was not able to restore the db, i'm trying to figure out why the log files are missing and found in the db2diag.log the following:

    IS it possible that the log file was never generated ?
    any idea of other possible solutions?

    some guidence

    some points about your error messages...

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>db2diag -rc -2062548983

    Input ZRC string '-2062548983' parsed as 0x85100009 (-2062548983).

    ZRC value to map: 0x85100009 (-2062548983)
    V7 Equivalent ZRC value: 0xFFFFD509 (-10999)

    ZRC class :
    Resource Capacity Error (Class Index: 5)
    SQLP ; data protection services (Component Index: 16)
    Reason Code:
    9 (0x0009)

    Identifer (without component):

    Log File has reached its saturation point

    Associated information:
    Sqlcode -964
    SQL0964C The transaction log for the database is full.

    Number of sqlca tokens : 0
    Diaglog message number: 8309

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>db2 ? SQL0964C

    SQL0964C The transaction log for the database is full.


    All space in the transaction log is being used.

    If a circular log with secondary log files is being used, an attempt has
    been made to allocate and use them. When the file system has no more
    space, secondary logs cannot be used.

    If an archive log is used, then the file system has not provided space
    to contain a new log file.

    The statement cannot be processed.

    User response:

    Execute a COMMIT or ROLLBACK on receipt of this message (SQLCODE) or
    retry the operation.

    If the database is being updated by concurrent applications, retry the
    operation. Log space may be freed up when another application finishes a

    Issue more frequent commit operations. If your transactions are not
    committed, log space may be freed up when the transactions are
    committed. When designing an application, consider when to commit the
    update transactions to prevent a log full condition.

    If deadlocks are occurring, check for them more frequently. This can be
    done by decreasing the database configuration parameter DLCHKTIME. This
    will cause deadlocks to be detected and resolved sooner (by ROLLBACK)
    which will then free log space.

    If the condition occurs often, increase the database configuration
    parameter to allow a larger log file. A larger log file requires more
    space but reduces the need for applications to retry the operation.
    Transaction configuration parameters which may need to be adjusted are
    LOGFILSIZ, LOGPRIMARY, LOGSECOND. For more information about the
    transaction log search the DB2 Information Center using phrases such as
    "transaction log".

    If installing the sample database, drop it and install the sample
    database again.

    sqlcode: -964

    sqlstate: 57011

    I would advise you to try contacting db2support and check with them.
