    Unanswered: ADD DBPARTITIONNUM STANDLONE mode

    DB2 AESE V10.1 on Windows.

    Question: what is the purpose of the STANDALONE clause of the 'start database manager add dbpartitionnum' command ?
    When and why is STANDALONE mode for a physical-partition useful?

    The Infocenter says this:
    "This option is valid only in a partitioned database environment. Specifies that the database partition is to be started in stand-alone mode. FCM does not attempt to establish a connection to any other database partition. This option is used when adding a database partition."

    Not an expert using DPF on Windows, but sounds like it would be used to add a partition and start it, when DB2 is already started on all other partitions.

    Still don't understand. I can add the partition and start it without using the STANDALONE option. If FCM does not communicate with a STANDALONE partition then what is the use of that partition? Private (non partitioned) databases? But if that's the case why bother having it as a partition - can use have a standalone db2 installation.
