hi frnds !

The attempt to connect to database database-alias failed because the pipe pipe-name cannot be found.

The server has not started its named pipe support, or the server is using a different name for the named pipe.

User response
Start the database manager and ensure the named pipe support starts. If the named pipe support has been started, then ensure the name of the named pipe is the same between the client and server by setting the environment variable DB2PIPENAME to the same value.
