    Unanswered: DB2 Replication

    DB2 server (Prod): iSeries
    DB2 server (DR) : iSeries with same configuration as Prod

    Right now, we have our DB2 database backed up to another location using EMC SRDF Disk replication. It works great however, we found out there is couple of minutes transferring time and if anything should happen in this delay, it would cost us a lot.

    So I talked to our DBAs about replicating the entire application using bi-directional replication (around 400 tables) and they were shocked. Basically they were burned on DB2 replication issues from another team, which only replicates about a dozen tables, but things get out of sync and frequent downtime to resync servers.

    Are there another alternative solutions you guys can help me with?

    Sure. Switch to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, Windows (which should run on your hardware if you replace the OS with AIX or Linux) and use HADR.
