You're right the .profile is preferred, however, it's harder to set up
initially until you have some idea about those tools. Jesse's article is
a must read.

By just setting the link up, you get past the often misguided restriction
that /home/'profilename' is OK to use. I can't count how many times I've
been told not to set those directories up.

Use: /QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/OPS/tools/bin/bash to start it
Or set up .profile to do it for you:

# detect if we're in a PASE shell

if [ $? != 0 -a "$SHELL" != "/QOpenSys/usr/bin/bash" ] then
exec /QOpenSys/usr/bin/bash

Be sure to use the right path to bash... :-)

Or, read Jesse's article 'Tech Tip: Be Like a Turtle!'
and use the new DB2 functionality to set your shell call
