In my last post, I mentioned that Craig Mullins and I had written a new article (http://www.idug.org/p/bl/et/blogid=31&blogaid=32) regarding “A Common Language for DB2 Security”. That article inspired a well-respected Senior DBA who understands DB2 on POWR i Systems security to write me this email:
” You can also share that these privileges apply to DB2 UDB running on POWER i under i/OS. SECADM has been a special authority that could be granted to those who need the ability to audit and report system activity. ”
Isn’t that awesome! The whole “common language” and “sharing” concept is already starting to work!
Thanks Mike Shaw for this excellent information! Your contribution just proves that as an IDUG community, we not only HAVE the knowledge, we will go out of our way to SHARE it.
