Federated environment;connections to SQL server.(RIMS)
Customer wants to have the 'check connection on open' feature in the DB2 client driver, like it exist on the the AS400 driver (http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg246440.pdf, page 55). ? Request was made via PMR and lab's answer was : << This is the design of SQLServer wrapper. MSSQL wrapper will not re-establish the outbound connection at the connection error, instead, it rolls back the current transaction and raises -1476 error. It is the application's responsibility to handle the -1476 error properly. Your request is more like a design change request or product enhancement request So, I suggest you contact your client REP to open a product enhancement >> Hence, this DCR request.
