Rob,

Having been a DBA on DB2 on VM and MVS, couldn't agree with you more!!!
 Now working on a i5 that is treated like a big PC I'm trying to get
them to see the need for a DBA and bring them into the latter half of
the 20th Century.

Also, regarding respecting the integrity of data files.  This is where
a 
lot of people who do not think that the i5 requires a dba fall flat on

their face.  There is much more that should be done at the database
level 
to ensure that people can't muck it up through back doors.  Frankly
it's 
the very limited few who have *ALLOBJ that are more likely to think
they 
know what they are doing and screw up the data.  Like the systems
person 
who's just going to run that quick sql to fix some data.  And, oops, 
10,000+ rows are fubared.  What is needed is more usage of constraints
and 
triggers.
