Unanswered: what is the impact of the modification of DB2 DAS SVCNAME (port)?
i want running on a solaris machine both DB2 V7.2 and V8.2 simultaniously. for this purpose i intend to change the port of the V8.2 to use another port than 523 set during the installation. is there anyone who has some experiences related to this?
in the DB2 Command references document the is a note: "it is not recommanded to modify the SVCNAME of the admin server set by the installation program"
what impact may have the change of the SVCNAME (port) on my system?
could i get both Admin servers on the same machine running?
the reason is that we have online applications that running against DB2 and we need reduce the down time of the applications as well as the recovery time (switching back to v7.2 in case of problems) to minimum during the migration. so we thougth it's best to have v7.2 and v8.2 installed, let the applications running against v7.2, prepare the environment for v8.2, switch the applications to run against v8.2. and in case of problems switching back to v7.2. this will be first done on the production environment to gain experiences.
