The Db2® Mirror environment supports replication of the object types that are typically updated in user applications.
IBM i objects
The following table lists the IBM® i object types that are eligible for replication by Db2 Mirror. More replication details for specific object types are contained in Object replication details.
|*SQLUDT||SQL user-defined type|
|*SQLXSR||SQL XML schema repository|
You might need to replicate only the definition of an object and not replicate the content. This option is supported within Db2 Mirror for the object types of *DTAQ, *FILE, and *LIB. A data queue or file can be replicated either as DEFINITION or all the content can be replicated as well. For a library, you can replicate only the library object, or you can replicate the library and all the replication-eligible objects within the library.
Integrated File System objects
Integrated File System (IFS) objects are made accessible on both Db2 Mirror nodes using a different technology than the replicated IBM i object types. To be accessible, the IFS objects must be contained within an IASP and the IASP must be part of a cluster resource group (CRG). This is described in greater detail in IFS IASPs.
