LOG-BACKUP—Recover an Object Using Log Records

The LOG-BACKUP keyword attempts a recovery from log records when all image copies fail.
The LOG-BACKUP keyword recovers an object by using log records when all image copies fail. If a recovery job fails due to an image copy failure, set the LOG-BACKUP parameter to YES and resubmit the job.
Review the following considerations:
  • If the log records are not available, the recovery might fail.
  • LOG-BACKUP is not valid with REBUILD INDEX.
This keyword has the following format:
  • YES
    Recovers the object using log records only. This value is the default.
  • NO
    Does not recover the object using log records. The recovery fails.
