Stopping the Db2 administration server (Linux and UNIX)

You must stop the Db2 administration server (DAS) before you remove your Db2 product.

About this task

Important: The Db2 Administration Server (DAS) has been deprecated and might be removed in a future release. The DAS is not supported in Db2 pureScaleĀ® environments. Use software programs that use the Secure Shell protocol for remote administration. For more information, see Db2 administration server (DAS) has been deprecated .
When uninstalling a Db2 product, you must drop the DAS if you are removing your last Db2 copy. If you have other Db2 copies, it is recommended that you run the dasupdt command to associate the DAS with another Db2 copy. If you decide to drop the DAS, you must stop the DAS first.
Note: This task does not apply to non-root installations of Db2 products.


To stop the Db2 administration server:

  1. Log in as the Db2 administration server owner.
  2. Stop the Db2 administration server by entering the db2admin stop command.
