Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
db2start of a running instance should reload/restart configuration without interruption of current sessions
Sometimes dbm configuration changes are not active immediately and require a full instance restart. E.g.
adding an SSL port and config
updates of the db catalog
changes in SYS*_GROUP
It would be great, if a db2start command is issued while the instance is already running, the db2start code does not only emit "SQL1026N The database manager is already active", but also start any newly configured port listener, refresh the db catalog, etc. as long as it is non-disruptive.
