some arbitrary application ids in "db2 list applications"

P: n/a
Hi,

When i do a "db2 list applications", i get the required applications
with their ip addresses.

However, some of the application Ids are ip addresses while some
application Ids are arbitrary(like GA500A2B.K105.014AC7050331) and of
the form "GA500%'.

Can somebody explain what are these indifferent application ids?

Also, i want to find out the ip address of the machine is running
these applications(because some of the locks are being caused because
of that application id).

Thanks

Rahul

Hi,

I have found out the cause of it.
It seems we were accessing the application through some alias given to
the machine.
Further,
"db2 get snapshot for application applid <application_id>" was also
helpful in finding the actual ip address.

The DRDA protocol does not allow application IDs to start with a digit
(0-9). Therefore, all digits in the first character are mapped to the
letters G thru P.

Knut,

It is the problem only with some application ids, rest all application
ids showed correct ip addresses.

If the first digit (first 4 bits) is 0 thru 9, it is mapped to G thru P. If
the first 4 bits already represent a letter A thru F, then no such mapping
is necessary. Therefore, some IP addresses are already correct while some
have to be mapped back - depending on the first letter.
