Double The Trouble

So the TSMDBMGR stanza was accidentally removed from a TSM 6.x server and the log space filled because DB backups could not be run. So upon bringing TSM back up (which is a nightmare with DB2) TSM support let my coworker know she had to take two DB backups to clear the logs. OK, so I have heard this since 6.x came out but it turns out the reason is due to a bug in TSM that they have not cleared up. So IBM's solution for now is that two DB backups clear the logs. You think that would be fixed by now.....go figure!
