APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • db2pd will fail whenever db2nodes.cfg file has hostnames and
    netnames, but the netnames are different from the hostnames.
    db2pd will get confused when the netname does not have the same
    IP address as the corresponding hostname, because it expects
    hostname and netname to be the same.
    
    The following error message will be generated:
    
    
    $ db2pd -dbp 130 -tablespaces  -db SAMPLE
    Unknown error(s) occurred while processing -member or -host
    option
    

Local fix

  • Use hostnames instead of netnames in db2nodes.cfg, either with

    1) node hostname port or
    2) node hostname port hostname
