Deploying SmartSwitch rules

You can deploy rules from a SmartSwitch view to one or more subsystems. For example, you can deploy a set of rules that you tested on a test subsystem to all of your subsystems. The deploy process copies the selected SmartSwitch rules to the target subsystems.

To deploy SmartSwitch rules

 New console
  1. In the Product Tools perspective, select a SmartSwitch view
  2. In the results pane, select one or more rules from the rules table. 
  3. Click Deploy rules .

  4. In the Deploy DB2 Utility SmartSwitch Rules dialog box, perform the following tasks:
    1. In the Name field, accept the default name provided or provide a name for the deployment.
      The name can contain up to 50 characters, including all printable ASCII characters.
    2. Select one or more Db2 subsystem connections as targets for the deployment.

      Tip

       You can select to show only your favorites.

    3. Select whether to continue if an error occurs for a selected Db2 subsystem.
      • Clearing the check box stops the deployment immediately.
      • Selecting the check box continues the deployment with the next Db2 subsystem.
