LifeKeeper for Linux DB2 Recovery Kit
In versions 8 and greater, DB2 UDB Enterprise Edition (EE) and Enterprise-Extended Edition (EEE) have been combined into a single product named DB2 UDB Enterprise Server Edition (ESE). Previous versions included two separate enterprise level database servers, the Enterprise Edition (EE) as a standard relational database management system and the Enterprise-Extended Edition (EEE) as an extension of the EE database server to support multi-partition databases.
The LifeKeeper for Linux DB2 Recovery Kit provides protection for the database manager in the EE, WE, and WSE environments, and for the database partition servers in an EEE environment. In a combined ESE environment, the recovery kit provides protection for both the database manager and the database partition servers.
Users may elect to define the DB2 Administration Server for each machine within the LifeKeeper cluster. When the DB2 Administration server is defined, LifeKeeper will attempt to start the DB2 Administration Server as a function of the DB2 hierarchy create and the DB2 hierarchy restore operations.
