Interrupt Port

Hi Guys,

Could some one share with me some information on the Interrupt port
being used in DB2. Whats the significance of this port in both EE and
EEE environments.

The interrupt port has not been actually used in a number of releases.
Where are you seeing this?

We are using db2 v 8.1 over linux and AIX in our environments. And most
of them have this port mentioned in the /etc/services (50001). Apart
from the usual TCP IP conection ports.
Is this something thats outdated one .. I am just trying to figure out,
why exactly or where exactly these ports are made use of .

I thought that the installer stopped creating these in v8. Perhaps you
created it manually, based on the v8 docs (which should also be cleaned up
by now)?

Yes, it's outdated. You needed it when talking to a v5 server, but I'm
pretty sure the v6 and later servers don't use it.

Or perhaps they were created during a V7 install and remained there when
the server was migrated to V8?

Thank you all for your valuable inputs on this .. So i understand this
port is no longer mandatory for the db2 installations.
