DB2 Database Backup Tool
RazorSQL provides a tool for backing up DB2 database data and structures for various database objects as well as a tool for backing up the data and structure of single tables.
The DB2 database backup tool works by generating all data definition language (DDL) statements for the DB2 schema objects selected by the user. It also generates SQL insert statements for all table data in the schema. The DDL and SQL insert statements are written out to a backup file.
The DB2 database backup tool allows users to select the objects to backup such as tables, views, indexes, procedures, and triggers, the character encoding of the backup file, the SQL statement separator to use when generating the backup file, and whether to fully qualify object names in the generated SQL and DDL statements.
The database backup tool writes out all data in character format, and as such, may not be acceptable for backing up tables that contain binary data.
