Installing DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition

The typical steps to install and configure DB2 CEE are as follows:

  1. Determine how you want to use DB2 Connect in your network.

  2. Verify that you have the correct hardware and software prerequisites on both your workstation and the host database server.

  3. Verify that your host or iSeries database server is configured to accept connections from DB2 Connect servers.

  4. Install your DB2 Connect software. You will use this workstation to configure and verify your host and iSeries connections.

    • Log on to the system as a user with administrator authority.

    • Enter the ./db2setup command to start the DB2 Setup wizard.

  5. After installation, establish the connection between DB2 Connect and your host or iSeries database system. You can use the Configuration Assistant to configure host or iSeries databases.

  6. Bind the programs and utilities provided with DB2 Connect to your host or iSeries database.

  7. Test the connection.

  8. Install and configure a DB2 client. Use this workstation to test connectivity from the DB2 client to host and iSeries database servers, as well as to test applications that use this connectivity.

  9. Use the Configuration Assistant to connect the client to the host or iSeries system through DB2 Connect.

  10. Install DB2 clients on all end-user workstations that will use applications that connect to host and iSeries database servers.

  11. You are now ready to use DB2 Connect with all your applications. Workstations that will be used for application development should have the DB2 Application Development Client installed.

  12. If you want to use your workstation to administer DB2 UDB for OS/390 and z/OS or DB2 UDB for UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows .NET servers, install the DB2 Administration Client.
