What do I need to install on server BO to make a new connection to DB2 ?

Hi experts,

i'm on a RedHat Linux server, and the CMS DB is on Oracle, and all the universes are connected to Orale.

Now I have to do a new universe that points to a new DB2 v9.7 data warehouse.

1) What do I have to install on server to make my DB2 connection work?

2) I've seen there are 2 diferent type of connection to DB2: "Client IBM DB2" and "Driver JDBC", what is the better connection?

Best Regards

you have to install the DB2 Client on your BO Server. Please install the 32Bit Version ob the Client. After the Installation you have to cataloge your DB2 Database(s).

Also you have to install the DB2 Client on your Development PC where you develope your DB2 based Universes.
