Other methods for moving a geodatabase in DB2

To move a geodatabase stored in a DB2 database management system (DBMS) and ensure you include all the necessary database objects, back up the database that you want to transfer and restore it to your target server. Doing this achieves the following:


You need to create your database on the destination machine with the correct code page before you perform the restore operation if the source and destination aren't using the default code page. If you do not do this and your production code page is different from that of the source, the restore utility assumes the default code page. This results in a SQL2548N error.

See the IBM DB2 Information Center documentation for instructions on creating backups of and restoring DB2 databases.
