Repository tools command to export the contents of a database

Use the export command to export the contents of a database to a tar file.

Purpose

The export command exports the contents of a database, using the current system encoding, to a tar file.
Note: The export command is only to be used for changing database vendors, for example, going from Derby to Db2®. This command should not be used for backing up databases.

Before running the export command, run the Repository tools command to verify the integrity of a database command against the database to ensure the integrity of the data.

Important: You must shut down the server before you run the command.
