Error description

  • When using db2cfexp tool to export connectivity configuration on
    LINUX Operating System,
    its output can show incorrect "ServerType", which is not
    expected. The following example illustrates this:
    
    Installing a brand new server and DB2 installation with Linux
    x86_64 (installing the proper DB2 for Linux x86_64) and running
    db2cfexp as "db2cfexp /tmp/db2conf BACKUP" can generate the
    following incorrect output (error marked with'<<<<<'):
    
    [INST>db2inst1]
    instance_name=db2inst1
    NodeType=4
    ServerType=DB2OS390 <<<<<
    Authentication=SERVER
    DB2COMM=TCPIP
    
    The fix for this defect will correct this incorrect output.
    

Local fix

  • There is no workaround for this issue, but it can be ignored as
    it won't have impact on the DB2 environment.
