How do you handle that with any other replication tool?? You do the same with PowerHA you place that object where it doesn't get replicated.

The simplest of course is software that uses IBM style keys for example ProData does for DBU and friends. These keys are in the system keystore and two things are true abou that. 1) You can have multiple system and multiple release keys in there. 2) It's in the sysbas disk pool so it's not replicated anyway.

For other vendor keys where the file containing the keys cannot be easily kept from replication we use a startup job step. The short description is we keep the keys in separate objects and drop them into the correct spot (Data Area, DB table etc) at startup time for the iASP.

And many vendors already have processes to handle this as they are 'PowerHA aware.'
