Automate delete archive log !

I have a db is in archive mod (LOGRETAIN = RECOVERY) and logprimary is set to 3. Pat the log file is / arch_log. If I go in that path i have:

But the active logs are only S0000004.LOG S0000005.LOG S0000006.LOG (db cfg >>> First active log file S0000004.LOG) ?
Others can delete ??? I can not automate the delete logs archived ?

Help me please !!!!

I wouldn't delete that old log files easily. They are inactive and could be deleted, yes. But then you wouldn't be able to restore a backup from the days these log files have been active.

So if you're sure you won't need to restore backups e.g. older than 7 days, then you could delete the log files older than this.

Hi docdiesel,

thank you for your reply.

My problem is this: I must set the DB for full online backup includes logs all day with VERITAS. I set LOGRETAIN = RECOVERY and USEREXIT = ON. Veritas makes backup without problem but does not erase the log achieved!
So that the filesystem where there are logs will be filled very soon!!!

How can I do? I do not know where most beat their heads!

I don't know Veritas, but we once had a database where we used the DB2 userexit db2uext2 to archive (and then delete) the logs automatically into our ADSM server (now called TSM). Please have a look at the site of IBM where they provide an article called "Setting Up a User Exit on DB2 UDB V8 to Archive Database Logs". This could be helpful to you, from the DB2 side. From the Veritas side, well, I can't tell, I'm sorry.

Best regards,

Please contract Viretas support. Viretas netbackup have two options for db2 archive log file ,one is COPY, the other is move.
