At Bank of America, we have strict standards and requirements for db2 authentication. We use Active Directory across the enterprise and use the vas tool from quest to access AD from the linux environment. We do not store passwords in /etc/password. We can not use pureScale in our environment for anything other than sandbox activities until this is supported for pureScale as it is for standard DB2.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||any account that like ours uses LDAP/AD authentication|
How should it work?
1) currently AD/VAS works for enterprise db2 (we use a PAM)
2) this same facility needs to work for pureScale.
3) we have gotten pureScale to work in our environment by manually installing a user account in /etc/password to be used for instance owner but this can not be deployed beyond a sandbox env.
|Priority Justification||we have teams requesting that we create pureScale environments for mission critical applications.|
