There is no entitlement for DB2 HADR configuration with the Portal pattern, so there is no out-of-the-box function to enable HADR. However, you can very easily deploy an instance of the DB2 patterns that DO support HADR in parallele to the Portal patterns, and create a script package on the Portal Part (primary node) that calls to the ConfigEngine with these tasks: create-database (if required) , setup-database (if required), and finally a database-transfer from the existing DB2 to your new HADR DB2 instance. You can review the Portal IC for more info on these tasks

Does the pattern supports adding a DB2 Standby Database in HADR mode to support high availability ?

If not, how difficult is to modify the predefined pattern to have this support.

IWD and PureApplication DB2 patterns already have HADR support, may this patterns be used to extend the Portal pattern ?
