I have a application in which I run from one iseries and need to over ride the data files to a different iseries database server. How do I reference and over ride the data base files to the remote server?

Check out Distributed Data Management (DDM) at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/systems/scope/i5os/topic/ddm/rbae5kickoff.htm?tocNode=int_214002

DDM can allow an application program to use a file on a remote system as if the file were local. There are various considerations related to how you are accessing the file (open/read/write/close vs SQL, commitment control, etc), but the above URL and related sub-topics should give you some good background on the subject.

    Also, within SQL you can identify a remote database and thru the connect statement access that database on your other iseries server. One restriction we have encountered is the inability to access both the local and remote databases at the same time. Hope this helps, Bill Poulin
