Db2 and CDC in HADR Governed by TSA
I was working with a customer who wanted to have a database replicating data bi-directional towards another database by means of InfoSphere Data Replication (IIDR aka CDC), but also wanted to have a fail-over mechanism in place in conjunction with the bought replication solution.

An "out of the box" setup for a Db2 cluster would be defined as follows: a Primary Db2 database server put in an HADR setup. If you want to have fail-overs automated, add TSA on top of it to act as a guardian.
Techniques to Move Db2 Data from PROD to TEST
sponsored content
In large scale organizations, it is often necessary to move data from Db2 Production subsystems to Test subsystems. Of the various technologies that are available to achieve this business objective, circumstances determine which is most appropriate. Additionally, it is sometimes necessary to consider extra technologies such as Encryption or Masking to meet data security expectations.
