    V7 is out of service for more than 1 year. You may want to move to V8 or V9.

    p.s: DB2 lets the operating system manage users. You don't have to repeat that task in DB2 itself. Alternatively, you can use security plugins to provide your custom approach for user management. But I don't think that was available in V7.
