Unanswered: Difference between 'DB2 Data Server for LUW' and 'DB2 Connect Server'
I am newbie to DB2. I am supposed to add database support for 'DB2 9.1 for LUW' using CLI apis.
I want to install DB2 Data server on windows. Once I run DB2 9.1 setup, it displays following options -
1) DB2 Client
2) DB2 Connect Server
3) Add-in for VS 2005
I learned that 'DB2 Connect Server' acts as gateway to z/os repository. Is it the DB2 Data server for LUW?
What is the difference between DB2 Connect Server and DB2 Data server?
Server is DB2 relation database product that can be installed on Windows/Linux/Unix and is used to store data on this OSes. You can access this database by any kind of client. But using Server you cannot use it as gateway to z/os database. You need Connect for that.
But for Server there are several several DB2 editions. Check this article:
Server "Enterprise edition" has a Connect product included in. All other Servers does not have it. You can buy Connect separately.
Now I am less confused. I have DB2 setup, that does not show 'DB2 Data Server' Option to install. However I can see 'DB2 Connect Server' option.
Could you please point me to the location from where I can download DB2 9.1 Server for LUW?
I have IBM PartnerWorld subscription.
don't know where to download DB2 editions from PartnerWorld subscription (hope someone else knows this if not call IBM support).
But there is Express-C version (free of charge) available for download (only v9.5 is available):
