TSM 6.1 & 6.2 DB2 Issue
I had a TSM server crash mutliple times over the course a week and after working with Tivoli support and sending them the core files, it was determined that the following error was the cause. Interesting, in that I never thought about the connections from TSM to the DB2 DB. So to summarize, the current connection from TSM to DB2 is not a TCP based but IPC and AIX has a limitation of 1024 IPC connections to DB2 otherwise the application in question (TSM in this case) can crash. The following link has directions on how to convert TSM to DB2 connections to TCP to eliminate this issue.
