I have a system that I will be restoring to multiple systems. The original backup was run to TSM. Normally I would restore pulling from TSM. However, since this will be restored to multiple systems can I pull the backup down from TSM and then run the restores pointing to a file system? Has anyone done this before?
You mean using db2adutl to extract the image and then restore using this extracted image? Sure, it should work. Auto-incremental restore relies on the history file, but a regular restore is fine. I've done it before.
