Problems with incremental backup UDB 8.1

P: n/a
Hi,
I try to perform an incremental backup of an entire database.
My problem: the option's for incremental backup are disabled.
OS: W2003Srv
UDB: 8.1
Any idea? Are there any parameters, which I have to set first?
Thanks in advance,
Peter

To be able to do incremental backups you need to have enabled the TRACKMOD configuration
parameter.
Second before you can do an incremental backup of a database or table space, you need to
have taken a full backup of the database or table space.

Have these conditions been met?

1. First turn on the db cfg trackmod
db2 update db cfg for DBNAME using trackmod on
2. Take a full backup

3. Take incremental backup
