Error description

  • The 'db2start' and 'db2stop' commands are not supported on
    client instances. Currently when the customer attempts to stop a
    remote db2 server instance from a client instance, the following
    is returned:
    
    "db2 stop dbm remote instance <instance name> hostname <host>
    user <user ID> using  <password> force executed successfully"
    
    However, the server instance is not stopped. The message should
    inform that the 'db2stop' command cannot be executed from a
    client instance and that it can only be executed from a server
    instance. The 'db2stop' and 'db2start' commands are strictly
    server based commands. They cannot be executed from a DB2 Client
    Instance.
