  • Windows: db2_install_directory\SQLLIB\BIN\db2cmd.exe

    For example: C:\"Program Files"\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN\db2cmd.exe

Note: The DB2 plug-in handles Write Anywhere File Layout (WAFL) operations by default. If you want to back up a consistency group backup with the DB2 plug-in, you should set the parameter to NTAP_CONSISTENCY_GROUP_WAFL_SYNC parameter to N. If you set this parameter to Y, additional and redundant synchronizing operations are performed.
