Restoring from a crashed system.


Folks,

One of our system crashed last week. It had few database instances on it.
They are all for development and was deteremined that they do not need to be
backed up (database backup, the file system was getting backed up).

The system had been running without any problem for few years so some of the
developers relied on it being up all the time and added data that could not
be easily re-created.

If I created same account on another system and restore the home directory
of the instance from the backup tape will I be able to start the database
and export the data?

I am using DB2 UDB 7.2 under AIX. The old system was running AIX 4.3 and the
new system is running AIX 5.3.

Thanks.

I haven't lost my mind, Above opinions are mine only.
it's backed up on tape somewhere. Others can have their own.
