Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

If I understand your question properly:
you want DB2 to be running one one server
When that server fails, you want DB2 to run on the  second computer

I did something similar with MySQL -
I used Heartbeat to float an additional IP with the mysql instance. If
Hearbeat sees the Mysql fail on one machine, it starts it up on the second
node and migrates the IP with it. Both nodes are configured to connect to
this floating IP.
