Re: What stops working when CHGRDBDIRE is used?



fixed

*LOOPBACK is used for IASP devices.
There might be another usage scenario but I have not run into it.

*LOCAL would seem to be the correct for the primary database.

The /special value/ *LOOPBACK [i.e. what Mark suggested] would seem
to be a better choice than what was already done. That is because if
the IP address of that server partition ever changes, then the RDB Entry
pointing to *LOOPBACK [remaining unresolved at create-time] would not
suddenly fail to connect locally or suddenly attempt to effect a
connection to a system with the old IP address. Those might be
potential issues if that RDB Directory Entry does not get updated to
specify the same value as the changed-to\new IP address. If not
explicitly *LOOPBACK, then using the address of 127.0.0.1 would seem to
be an option, as the probable _localhost_ loop-back host address.

I already used ADDRDBDIRE with the system's IP address as the
RMTLOCNAME of the IP address. Would loopback work better?

Just issue:
ADDRDBDIRE RDB(oldname) RMTLOCNAME(*LOOPBACK)

That will add the "old name" back again, to the Relational
Database Directory Entries -- you can issue WRKRDBDIRE to see them
all.

That way, your users do not have to change all of those documents,
etc. (preserves compatibility with the past).
