SQL1336N The remote host "serverX" was not found

Exception in thread "main" COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.DB2Exception: [IBM][CLI Driver] SQL1336N The remote host "serverX" was not found.

If you get above error, one possible reason could be the alias name used could be pointing to wrong database server.

Connection con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:db2:ALIASNAME","username","password");

In my case ALIASNAME was required to point serverX but it was referring to serverY. I knew the solution but I did not know how to do it. I asked my database administrator (DBA) to have a look at the issue. What he told me is, he has to uncatalog and catalog it with the correct server.

Truly speaking I don’t know the meaning of these terms "uncatalog and catalog", I asked him let me know the solution as this issue may arise in future too. He told as i am a programmer, i cannot do the task which a DBA can do... Is it really?

So dear friends I may disappoint you and I apologize for that. But if this is the case with yours please contact with your database administrator.
