I restored a database to v7.2 on XP from a backup made from another version (v7.1) on Windows98. It worked! Then I decided to delete it and attempt the restore again. Big mistake. I received SQL1005N saying it already existed. When I tried to uncatalog it from the the system I received SQL1013N state=42705 saying the database could not be found. How does the restore operation know about it when the other operations clearly don't? I don't really want to reinstall DB2 as I view it's instatllation a bit of a miracle in itself. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, you solved the problem! But as usual it leads me to another one. I can't seem to eliminate a SQL117N - Connection or activation problems due to a pending forward roll. I've been reading contradicting information from IBM. I'm going to try a few approaches gleaned from responses to the same problem posted on this site.
1. The original problem occurred after I issued a drop database.
2. I had to remove the "\" from "db2 catalog database <db> on C:\" before it would catalog.
