DB2 v8 Serverpac UNIX mountpoints
Confused: - I am not sure which mountpoints to use ?

My serverpac install created UNIX directories (what looked to be two
identical sets):

/Services/usr/lpp.....
and
/usr/lpp......

then mounted the filesystems on /Services/usr/lpp....

BUT created the BPXPRMDB parmlib member with mountpoints of
MOUNTPOINT('/usr/lpp.....')

DDEF entries includes /Service/usr/lpp....

Which mountpoint should I use /Service/usr/lpp... or /usr/lpp....

and if you can, does this look correct, and why are there two sets ?

thanks,
Mark Vickers.

Mark,
The filesystem /Service/usr/lpp ... is where the serverpac will probably
install the target library code. The other filesystem is a model for
your run time subsystem code. Check you DDDEF statements to verify
this. You can call the run time filesystem anything you want (e.g.
/usr/dbxx/lpp). Presumably, you will have one mountpoint for each
subsystem. You can then copy the /Service filesystem code to each one
after each maintenance application to implement it.

Thanks, Mark.
Are you saying I should have the BPXPRMDB parmlib member mount to the
/Service/usr/lpp.... directories ?
thanks,
Mark.

Mark,
The filesystem /Service/usr/lpp ... is where the serverpac will probably
install the target library code. The other filesystem is a model for
your run time subsystem code. Check you DDDEF statements to verify
this. You can call the run time filesystem anything you want (e.g.
/usr/dbxx/lpp). Presumably, you will have one mountpoint for each
subsystem. You can then copy the /Service filesystem code to each one
after each maintenance application to implement it.

Re: DB2 v8 Serverpac UNIX mountpoints

Mark
I would have a parmlib mountpoint entry for both the /SERVICE and target
directories. I am assuming that they are in separate HFS files.

There is all kinds of fancy UNIX stuff you can do with multiple
mountpoints, links etc. but I have just one HFS file per subsystem plus
one for the SERVICE with a mountpoint for each in the parmlib and this
works well enough.
