    Unanswered: Where is DB2 ODBC driver in default installation DB2 v9.5 for Linux

    Hi,
    I have installed DB2 v9.5 on Linux.

    I have installed DB2 product by default to /opt/ibm/db2/V9.5
    DB2 instance is by default in path: /home/db2inst1

    Then I have installed one product that requires DB2 ODBC driver. I have to set up DB2 ODBC driver path. Where is this driver located (path and driver name) in default DB2 Linux install?
    Thanks,
    Grofaty

    I do not think that they are installed with the DB2 core install. Check out this page from the DB2 v9.5 documentation:

    Hi,
    the link you provided is manual for installing Microsoft SQL Server drivers, which are not provided by default during install of DB2.

    But I think there should be ODBC drivers available by default - there are available on Windows - I don't know there names but I can create ODBC connection. On Windows this is very simple but on Linux command "db2 catalog system odbc data source db_name" reports error that this command is not supported on Linux platform.

    Any idea what is path to DB2 ODBC drivers after default install of db2 v9.5 on Linux?

    Like I said, I do not think that they are installed with the core product.

    You can always open a PMR with IBM to find out.

    Hi,
    just to put note if someone else will look into this info.

    By default ODBC driver is: /home/db2inst1/sqllib/lib/libdb2.so

    Only DB2 Server must be installed with no other additional software.
