    Unanswered: DB2 failed connections equal locked unix account

    AIX 5.2
    DB2 8.2

    We have had a unix account get locked out on our DB2 Server due to failed logins. This is an application ID which has the user/password set in the software. What I believe is happening is when DB2 is unavailable the application fails to connect to db2 and this translates to a failed unix login. Is this possible? How can DB2 cause the UNIX account to get locked out? Anybody experience this and have any solution?

    Thanks,

    Charlie.

    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    Any locked table, error conditions, force applications all? Anything you can do in DB2 which would then pass back a failed login to unix which would then result in a locked account?

    that would be NO as well.

    Did you talk to your UNIX people before talking to us?

    Yes and they were unable to find any other IP using that ID other than the application.
