FROMRBA—Define the Log RBA to Use

The FROMRBA keyword specifies the RBA from which the tablespace or tablespaces are recovered.
cafrdb2
The FROMRBA keyword specifies the log relative byte address (RBA) from which the tablespaces are recovered. Use this keyword to specify the log starting point when you perform a log-only recovery after a point-in-time recovery outside of Db2. During the FROMRBA recovery, each log record RBA is compared with the RBA in the data page. If the log record RBA is less than the data page RBA, the recover job assumes it has already been applied and ignores the current log record.
Use FROMRBA with care. Data resulting from a partial recovery can be inconsistent.
This keyword denotes a partial log-only type of recovery. Do not specify the LOGONLY keyword with FROMRBA.
FROMRBA is omitted by default. If you include FROMRBA, specify an RBA.
Specify only one FROMRBA for a RECOVER statement even when the statement includes multiple tablespaces.
FROMRBA is not valid with RECOVER INDEX. FROMRBA is not valid for an OBIDXLAT recovery. Use the STARTRBA keyword instead.
This keyword has the following format:
FROMRBA {X'
byte-string
'}
  • X'
    byte-string
    '
    Specifies the RBA as a hexadecimal number preceded by X and enclosed in single quotes. If the RBA of a log record is
    byte-string
    or greater, that record is used in the recovery.
