It is possible that in a GPFS (IBM Spectrum Scale) cluster to install DB2 (not PureScale) and to have a GPFS managed cluster of DB2 AWSE (instead of using a DB2 HADR ?!)
If we have 2 servers RHEL 7.x a in GPFS cluster (IBM Spectrum Scale Advanced Edition - 5.0) that share a GPFS file system /db2data on local disk of each server like /opt I install DB2 v11.1 Advanced Workgroup Server Edition (AWSE).
Next create home (instance) user on common /db2data.
If I create a instance on server1 on /db2data, data is replicated - the entire directory structure also on /db2data on server2 but the instance is only on server1.
db2ilist on server2 does not show any instance.
I presume the same it happens when create a database on server1 - it does not show up on server2 and also for other objects like tables, indexes etc
Is this possible somehow to get a GPFS cluster of DB2 AWSE without PureScale (I was told to try it)
I know such a solution does work for GPFS and WebSphere MQ.
But this is also possible with DB2 v11.1 ASE (not with PureScale) - I doubt so.
If yes does what objects replicate and how to implement it?!
According to this document DB2BP_GPFS_0313.pdf
it might be possible but I found no other online resource !
I would really appreciate any feedback.
