New DB2 for LUW Automated Failover Option

DB2 HADR - TSAMP integration. Treat a set of databases on a server, even across DB2 instances, as a unit. If one database has a failure and has to failover then we want all the databases in that unit to failover. And just as important, we want to use one virtual ip for this unit.

    I understand this problem, I've had it myself with 6 databases of IBM BPM. But on one day, the cluster wanted to fail over and had an issue on the other side. So a few databases managed to stay there and the rest failed back.

    the customer mainly stayed online, although this is not licensed as active-passive cluster anymore.

    What shall happen, in the perspective of this idea, if such a situation happens again? Failing completly? Failing back and forth until an admin is stopping this? Leaving the cluster in a stable but distributed configuration?

    i voted for your idea, but I'm looking forward what IBM comes up as a solution. Maybe I can implement then this at my customer.
