Need Tech Review of DB2 Backup Chapter for O'Reilly Book

P: n/a
My name is W. Curtis Preston, and I'm the author of "Backup & Recovery"
(formerly "Unix Backup & Recovery") from O'Reilly & Associates. (
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/unixbr/ )

We're updating the book for 2006 and adding a chapter on DB2 backup and
recovery, and two IBM folks have written what appears to be a strong
chapter. The problem is that I'm not qualified to review it, since I'm
not that familiar with DB2.

Can anyone in this group step up to the plate and review the DB2
chapter? You would be mentioned in the acknowledgments of the book and
receive an autographed copy of the book.

We're looking for two tech reviewers.

Are these two IBMers from development (Toronto)?
If not maybe they should take a look. Send me a not in that case and
I'll try to hook you up.

Hi Curtis,

Besides "the labs", would also suggest a "field reviewer" - as
situations and configurations in the field are often more unque and
often have several constraints (e.g. security, compression, backup
windows, DR v/s backup/restore, etc.).

If you haven't filled up your slots yet, count me in as one from the
field.

I'm pretty sure these are field guys, but I'll count you in, Jayesh.
Thanks! I'll try to email you directly, but if you see this and didn't
see an email, send me a note at ba***********@gmail.com.

Thanks.
