The machine / operating system wide configuration file hosts the settings for the dbtuswitch.sh script [more] and is located at /opt/dbtutools/dbtuswitch.cfg (more about the /opt/dbtutools tree [here]).
The file format is very basic and straightforward. All other tools should use an XML application!
|# Global settings
# Instance settings
Instance=db2inst1:Comment=Productive Instance (default)
Sample configuration file
Most settings within the configuration file are optional (except the ConfigSource setting, which is used by the Java Library [more]). Fields are separated by colons like the /etc/passwd file in Unix.
Currently there are three key/value pairs:
|Global:DefaultInstance:INSTANCE||With this setting you are able to define the default instance (INSTANCE) for your machine/operating system instance.|
|Instance:INSTANCE:Comment:COMMENT||Using this setting you are able to define a text (COMMENT) per instance (INSTANCE), which is displayed in the comment field of the db2switch.sh output (calling the script without any parameter).|
|Instance:INSTANCE:ConfigSource:TYPE||This setting is needed to define the Config Source
type (TYPE) per instance (INSTANCE). The Java Library uses this value
to determine how to find and read the configurations for the DbtuTools
Currently the only valid entry is "UnixCfg", standing for Unix configuration files.
