BMCXCOPY registrations

Full image copies of indexes are registered in the BMCXCOPY table if one of the following situations applies:
  • The index is defined with COPY NO.

  • The index is a nonpartitioning index with data set level (DSNUM n) copies, even if the nonpartitioning index is defined as COPY YES.

These registrations are made in BMCXCOPY rather than in SYSCOPY because DB2 does not allow registration of such image copies in SYSCOPY.

Incremental index copies are always registered in BMCXCOPY.

Instant Snapshot copies of table spaces and indexes, which are made by BMC Next Generation Technology Copy for DB2 for z/OS with EXTENDED BUFFER MANAGER for DB2, are registered in the BMCXCOPY table with an STYPE of V. When a local primary Instant Snapshot copy is registered in BMCXCOPY and a local backup copy is made, the local backup copy is also registered in BMCXCOPY, even if it is a regular DB2 image copy.

Encrypted image copies, which are made by NGT Copy, are registered in the BMCXCOPY table with an STYPE of e. For more information about encrypted copies and their registration, see Recovery of encrypted copies.

When ICTYPE=P, BACKOUT recovery is registered in the BMCXCOPY table with an STYPE of B.

Cabinet copies, which are made by the Recovery Management solution, are registered in BMCXCOPY with a COPY_TYPE value of C. For more information about cabinet copies, see Using cabinet copies.

Migration files which are created by the NGT Copy EXPORT command are registered in BMCXCOPY.

Simulated recoveries and rebuilds, and INDEP OUTSPACE recoveries and rebuilds, are registered in BMCXCOPY with the following ICTYPE / TTYPE:
