Automate restart of IIDR tasks when RRS terminates

We had issues with RRS recently which were solved via a maintenance cycle. During those issues, our IIDR Capture and Apply tasks failed and required manual restart. We have the option TERM=N enabled yet the Capture/Apply tasks were not restarted w...

Leverage "FOR EACH ROW ON UPDATE" functionality to maintain Peer to Peer Version Columns, instead of triggers

Current implementation of Peer to Peer Version Columns (IBMQREPVERTIME and IBMQREPVERNODE) depend on BEFORE INSERT and BEFORE UPDATE triggers to maintain transaction information for conflict_action of V (last transaction wins). The use of these tr...

ALTER table DATA CAPTURE NONE not detected by IIDR QREP or CDC

If 'ALTER table DATA CAPTURE NONE' is executed against a table that is actively replicating, any changes made to the source data will not be captured or replicated until ‘ALTER table DATA CAPTURE CHANGES' is executed. This would cause the target...
