ECC6.0 with DB2 Installation on cluster.

Hi all,

I am planning to install ECC6.0 with db IBM DB2 on HP-Unix Cluster environment.

I am planning to have Active-Active node for cluster.

Let us take two system SysA and SysB

one node will be active with SysA with database instance and one will with SysB with central instance.

So My query is whether I have to install DB2 software on both the systems (SysA and SysB) because at the time of failover when database system SysA will fail then database instance node will switch to SysB.

In SysB there will be no DB2 software to support and run database.

And what settings I have to do for successful installation on cluster.

Please guide me ...

If anyone is having good document for this type installation please send to d_700734@yahoo.com.

Thanks

Regards

Manoj

    Manoj,

    As it is a fresh install, I suggest going with DB2 V9 for your ECC 5.0 install as

    DB2 binaries can be specific to SAP instance, hence they can reside on

    /db2/db2<sid>/db2_v9/…..which can be your clustered filesystem which gets failed over when you move DB resources from primary node to secondary node.

    Central instance and app servers will not require full DB2 Admin client installation, as they use thin client

    /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/db6/AIX_64/db6_clidriver

    I suggest opening an OSS message with SAP and asking them how to proceed if these are not described in ECC6.0 installation master guide.

    I know the above features are availble with DB2V9, but not sure if SAP released them with nw2004/nw2004s.

    In our case, We run DB2 V8 with ECC 5.0 and we run to seperate clusters to make the job little easier for us. We have DB cluster and CI cluster on AIX.

    You can email me at Raja.Poranki@thomson.com if you have any further questions and need any assistance.
