DB2 10.5 on Windows Server
I am using HADR to do a server migration.  Old server is primary and new server is stand by.  At migration time, I plan to shut down the primary and then make the standby primary.  I am looking for some way to be sure that I don't lose any data when I do this.  
Can I quiesce the primary before hand and do some type of flush log to make sure all the data has beem copied over to the standby?  Or should I do a takeover by force on the standby and will that ensure no data loss?
Thank you!
