I am new to db2, installed it a few days ago. I am able to work with it locally, using the unixODBC. However, I am unable to connect to db2 from a remote machine.
I am not sure whether the problem is on the server or the client side, so I'll give info on both:
I am running 2 virtual machines with centos linux on the same windows host, which can successfully ping each other.
when running db2start
, I get the following message:
SQL5043N Support for one or more communications protocols failed to start successfully. However, core database manager functionality started successfully.
However, in the db2diag.log file (diag level 4) I see
MESSAGE : DIA3000I "TCPIP" protocol support was successfully started.
although, I see some "Error" and "Severe" entries there
[db2inst1@bagvapp sqllib]$ db2set -all
[db2inst1@bagvapp sqllib]$ db2 get dbm cfg |grep -i svce

I am using the free edition express-C as follows:
[db2inst1@bagvapp sqllib]$ db2level
DB21085I Instance "db2inst1" uses "32" bits and DB2 code release "SQL09071"
with level identifier "08020107".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v188.8.131.52", "s091114", "IP23033", and Fix Pack
Product is installed at "/opt/ibm/db2/V9.7".
On the client side, I use unixODBC and libodbc++ which works ok locally.
When using the following connection string:
const string connstring = "DSN=Navajo;Hostname=192.168.99.110;Port=50000;Protocol=TCPIP;Uid=db2inst1;Pwd=zzz;";
I get the error:
[unixODBC][IBM][CLI Driver] CLI0199E Invalid connection string attribute. SQLSTATE=08001
the Data Source is defined in the /etc/odbc.ini as follows:
Description = Navajo Systems DB
Driver = DB2
Database = NAVAJO
Hostname = 192.168.99.110
Port = 50000
Protocol = TCPIP
Uid = db2inst1
Pwd = zzz
Note that db2 is also installed on the client machine as they are a replica of one another, but it is stopped.
Is there a tool with can help me check whether the database is listening properly (perhaps from Windows)?
Sorry for the long post, tried to be as specific as possible.
Thanks in advance!
