About the online agent function for VCS agent for DB2

The agent uses the db2gcf program to start a DB2 instance or database partition. The command is:

# su $DB2InstOwner -c "$InstHome/sqllib/bin/db2gcf -u -i\
    $DB2InstOwner -p $nodenum"

This agent can also use the db2start command to start all DB2 partitions.


The agent uses the db2start command when the UseDB2start attribute is set to 1 and the partition is of non-MPP type.
