    I am being forced to use a response file for the first time ever… nice write-up. thanks !
    any information/thoughts on the other keywords, and why you might want to use or not use them would be appreciated.

      I tend to be a fan of doing a minimal amount of work with the response file, and then doing things manually after that – assuming I’m not building the same database time after time. I haven’t created a database using the response file in years, but it can be done. You can even catalog databases in a response file. I think response files might make sense for PureScale as well.

      I do recommend verifying each keyword works as expected at least the first time you use it – I’ve seen issues in the past with a keyword not setting a value as expected, though that was a long time ago.

      Here’s a link to the keywords for 10.5: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSEPGG_10.5.0/com.ibm.db2.luw.qb.server.doc/doc/r0007505.html
