    Question Unanswered: DB2 AIX backups

    I am doing nightly cold backups on by DB2 AIX databases. The databases are not used very much in the TEST environment. The log files are several weeks old. I want to know if there is a command that I can run to switch the log file before my offline backup. This way I can remove all the old log files , and keep the one I have just created by doing the log switch. Please let me know if you have any information on offline backups and log switching. Thanks.
