DAS

DAS 
This is a DB2 DBA to be writing .
What is the benefit of having DAS defined when you define an instance?
What happens if it is not defined.

We have a database defined in an instance, without the DAS and is running
fine. The current DBA even uses the Control Center,
whereas I am reading in manuals you must have DAS to be able to use the
Control Center. So, I am a bit confused here.

We have UDB DB2 V7.?? on AIX

Re: DAS 
(in response to Nazy Gholizadeh)
AFAIK, you need the DAS for two things:
- perform remote administration
- enable discover for another clients
I suppose, the current DBA is starting Control Center on the server, aren't
s/he? If you want to use an Admin Client, remote, you need the DAS.

HTH,
