Add Replication (Q-rep and CDC) Administration functionality to Data Server Manager

We would like to see the Replication administration and monitoring capabilities added to the Data Server Manager(DSM). Today we are using Management Console to administer and monitor our IIDR CDC replication environment, replicating from z/OS DB2 to Oracle. We also support IIDR queue replication and use Replication Center and Dashboard to monitor and administer this environment. Management Console and Replication Center are currently installed on each DBA's desktop and do not provide multifactor authentication capabilities. We would like to move all replication functionality to Data Server Manager (DSM). DSM is currently our direction for all DB2 administration. DBAs also administer replication activity so DSM is a perfect fit for enabling the replication administration. This replication administration would give the DBAs one interface for their database and replication administration. It would also greatly reduce our maintenance requirements given it would be one product and would be a browser based interface for each desktop, with the software residing on a server.
