With that said, I'm starting to question #2.We were told by IBM Support that db config/admin mode in clustered environments can't be done exclusively through the Maximo UI (which is the only thing us Maximo admins have access to).
TS006286516"For a clustered Maximo environment, what is IBM's recommended method for applying database configuration changes? Example: create a view object."
"The recommended approach if you are using the Database Configuration application is to shutdown all JVM's but one and then enter Admin Mode from the Database Configuration application and perform the configuration.Some of the servers on this cluster are in Admin mode and some are notIf you prefer, you may choose to shutdown all application servers and use the command line DBConfig.bat tool. Both methods are supported."
I posted an RFE about my frustrations about how difficult it is for us to make db config changes to clustered environments:Easier db config changes in clustered environments"It would be helpful if non-WebShpere admins could make db config changes in clustered environments. In other words, add a field to a table in a clustered environment -- and do it all from within the UI."The RFE team said:"This should be available after a fix that was made available several years ago. Can you confirm this is still the behavior you experience in the latest versions?"Question:Has anyone tried to apply db config/admin mode in a clustered environment lately -- all from within the UI? If so, what happened?I ask, because I don't think my organization has ever actually tried. We just assumed that what were told was true...that it would cause problems.Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
