Ability to keep configuration parameters in sync on HADR standby databases

Currently configuration parameter changes (db2set, dbm cfg and db cfg) on HADR primary database do not propogate to the standby databases. Having an optional clause or switch to propogate the config changes will ensure that on failover to standby ...

Finer granularity of configuration parameters

Many configuration settings are currently at the whole level of granularity. 1) Similar to 'use' privilege at the tablespace level, it would be helpful to be able to grant 'load' privileges at the tablespace level too. Currently it is a database-l...

HADR Standby logarchiving
