Beef with 8.1 Information Center

P: n/a
Another complaint I would like to see corrected. The Information
Center tool is now pretty much useless to me. Does anyone else besides
me remember when information center had a troubleshooting tab that had
all of the messages that may appear as well as SQL error messages. The
Tasks tab also used to have many more useful catergories. Please stop
changing things that are not broke. Besides Information center, I do
not like the look and usuabilty of the new Command Center either.
Sometimes simple is good. Just my thoughts anyone agree or disagree?

Please take a look at V8.1 FP7 available for download from
http://www.ibm.com/software/data/db2...ownloadv8.html. The
Information Center has been completely replaced with a help system (also
called the DB2 Information Center, naturally) that is organized by
database tasks (Installing, Administering, Developing, Troubleshooting,
etc). You can get the DB2 Information Center by downloading and
installing the *DOCE* package from the FP7 download directories. You'll
find all of the error messages listed under the Reference->Messages
category.

The Command Center (now called the Command Editor) has also improved
substantially in FP7.

I would be interested to hear your feedback on the latest iterations of
these tools to see if they're more to your satisfaction--and if not,
what specific changes you would like to see to improve your experience
with the tools.

yes. it's baffling. it seems they're *trying* to piss folks off.

Dan,
I like the changes in fp7 so far. I appreciate the info on the
download the DOCE and I have tried the new web link for Information
Center in fp7. This would suffice for me as far as Information Center
is concerned.
