IBM Cloud private, Microclimate, Cloud Garage, Twelve-Factor App, DevOps, …

After one week in Las Vegas where I attended IBM Think 2018 I’m finally back home in my regular daily routine. It was a great time! Meeting friends and customers, attending IBM and Community sessions as well as giving my own talk.

Beside my IBM Collaboration Solution topics my mate Stoeps and I used much of our time to learn about new tools, methods as well as dig deeper into them. Mostly related to Microservices, Docker and DevOps. We talked with many IBMers, attended Keynotes and talks about these topics.

Before installing IBM Security Directory Integrator you have to install libstdc++5. On Ubuntu 10.04 you will find this library in the trusty universe repository. To use this you need to add following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list: Continue reading “Using IBM Security Directory Integrator 7.2 on Ubuntu 10.04”

DB2 Client zum Administrieren einer DB2 HADR einrichten

Folgende Scritte sind notwendig um einen DB2 Client gegen eine HADR Umgebung anzubinden.

db2 CATALOG TCPIP NODE db2node1 REMOTE db2node1.nme.local SERVER 50000 REMOTE_INSTANCE db2inst1
db2 CATALOG DB DB1 AS pri_db AT NODE db2node1

Dieser Schritt muss nach Bedarf auch für die zweite Instanz/DB durchgeführt werden:

db2 CATALOG TCPIP NODE db2node1 REMOTE db2node2.nme.local SERVER 50001 REMOTE_INSTANCE db2inst2
db2 CATALOG DB DB1 AS sta_db AT NODE db2node2

Danach ist es möglich über den HADR Manager den Status des Clusters abzurufen oder ein Takeover zu forcieren

Init.d Script für DB2 unter RHEL

Aus aktuellem Anlass habe ich ein Init.d Stript für eine DB2 Instanz unter RHEL (Redhat Enterprise Linux) geschrieben. Das Script startet nicht die Instanz direkt sondern den db2fm Dienst der die Instanz überwacht und gegebenenfalls neustartet.

Deaktivieren des DB2 eigenem  Autostart (es gibt nur einen Autostart kein sauberes Beenden der Instanz):

/opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/bin/db2fmcu -d

Desweiteren muss der Autostart der Datenbank aktivert sein. Dies ist jedoch bei einer Standard Installation der Fall.

Hier die erste Version des Scripts. Ich werde eventuell noch einen Status bzw. ein Check der Datenbank einbauen: Continue reading “Init.d Script für DB2 unter RHEL”
