Is the Database Administration Service part of the standard installation or an option?

I just got pointed at a number of DB2 databases and found that the DAS
has not been enabled on the server they reside upon.

I'm trying to get an understanding of whether the DAS is installed as
a standard part of the server and the service has been disabled, or
whether you need to include it as an option during the install
process.

Is enabling the DAS simply the process of starting a process that
currently resides on the server or does there have to be another pass
at installation?

Just the facts please, no discussions of why this was done.

Thanks in advance!

I think you have to distinguish "installation" from "creating" a DAS
instance. The software is installed, but it is up to you whether to create a
DAS instance. Just like it is up to you whether to create a default DB2
instance at installation.

To create a DAS instance, check out the dascrt command (Create a DB2
Administration Server) in the Command Reference manual.

Also note that even if the DAS is created, it must be started (db2admin
start) by the DAS instance owner, or set to autostart in the configuration
parms.
