(UDB)db2ilist & "profiles.reg" QUESTIONS
Hi,
I have 2 related questions.
DB2 UDB ESE v8.x (8.1 till 8.2 FP2 - all fixpaks included) on AIX 5.4.x
I am the instance owner and can "su" to all other instance owners.
_________________________________________________________________________
(QUESTION 1)
Output of "db2ilist" does not list all the instances on my AIX box.
DB2 functions normally - I do not get any unexpected errors.
Any ideas what configuration has been missed out?
_________________________________________________________________________

_________________________________________________________________________
(QUESTION 2)
I have this file "profiles.reg" in "/var/db2/v81/".
"cat" of this file shows me the instances on my AIX box.
I have encountered this situation - I have created 1 server instance
and 1 client instance. "db2ilist" or "cat profiles.reg" does not show
the client instance.
For the sake of keeping things working (which otherwise were working
fine, except for some failover scripts), I just edit "profiles.reg"
and things are just as expected.
_________________________________________________________________________

So, effectively the questions are -
(1) When does DB2 make an entry of instance name to "profiles.reg";
(2) Does "db2ilist" read directly from "profiles.reg"?;
(3) Of course I want to know what configuration step is being missed out
that db2ilist does not list all my active DB2 instances and
"profiles.reg" does not contain entries of all my DB2 instances.

Regards..........Anurag
