    Unanswered: help with crash recovery

    Hi guys,

    I did a stop force on my database when the there was a trasaction rolling back. when it didnot come back up for 30 min I did a db2_kill and ipclean. Now the database would not connect. THe database manager is up and running but the connection to the database is not taking place. and I cant tell if the database is in crash recovery. I see the crash recovery happened for all other databases in the db2diag.log and I can connect to them, but our major database is not available. ANd I only see below for this one

    "2012-02-24- Instance:db2inst1 Node:000
    PID:839852(db2agent (DBNAME) 0) TID:3343 Appid:
    recovery manager sqlpresr Probe:410 DatabaseBNAME"

    I did a "db2 restart db dbname" but its bee runninf from a long time

    What can be done to bring it back up. I know the drop database and restoring it wouldnot work either because I cannot perform any operation on it
    I am on db2 9.7 fixpack 5 and circular logging because this is our UAT env .

    Please help..The UAT team is on hold and I am disappointed in myself

    ADM7513W Database manager has started.

    2012-02-24- Instance:db2inst1 Node:000
    PID:336106(db2agent (DBNAME) 0) TID:3086 Appid:
    recovery manager sqlpresr Probe:410 DatabaseBNAME

    ADM1530E Crash recovery has been initiated.

    so I am expecting it to be still in crach recovery mode. It is a 6TB database

    Yes, you will not be able to connect to the database until crash recovery has completed--no matter how long that will take.

    I would suggest you rethink your disaster plan.

    Thanks Andy... It just came back up and I checked all the tablespaces they look fine. I can connect to the database and the app team can query their database

    You can use

    db2 list utilities show detail
    to monitor the progress of crash recovery.

    Hi Sathya,

    That was the issue, the commands I issued hung there forever without resturning any results. But my restart command came back successfully after the crash recovery process completed and the database came back up
