Question: How can I terminate a DB2 backup ? Using db2 list utilities I can see a BACKUP in progress , but how can I terminate the BACKUP from within DB2?
Answer: To identify the process managing the BACKUP use this command
db2 list applications show detail | grep -i perform
From this result identify the process id related to the BACKUP. Force the application ID with this command. Check db2 list utilities to confirm if the backup is still running
Db2 force application (application_id)
