The Implementing DB2 Connect and Client Connections to DB2 for z/OS training course teaches the database or communications professional to implement, administer, and tune DB2 Connect to DB2 for z/OS client/server distributed relational database connections using the Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA). Attendees will learn to configure TCP/IP connectivity for DB2 for z/OS, DB2 Connect, and optionally DB2 for Windows or UNIX to enable DRDA connections. They will also create a database manager instance, bind applications remotely, and identify security, performance, and problem determination issues.
By attending Implementing DB2 Connect and Client Connections to DB2 for z/OS workshop, attendees will learn to:
- Describe the connectivity alternatives
- Configure DB2 for z/OS as a DRDA application server
- Connect from a Linux, UNIX or Windows client to a DB2 for z/OS server using DB2 Connect, JDBC type 4 connection or the IBM Data Server for ODBC and CLI
- Configure a DB2 Connect Server
- Connect form a client to a DB2 for z/OS server through a DB2 Connect server
- Move data between platforms
- Configure DB2 for z/OS as a DRDA application requester to access a DRDA application server
- Perform basic problem determination in a distributed environment
Working knowledge of Windows or UNIX, and z/OS operating systems, and be familiar with DB2 concepts.
This course is for Database Administrators, System Administrators, Systems Engineers or System Implementers.
