MIND YOU, I AM PLAYING, not working. So when you do not find time to help me, it's O.K.
Inbetween 2 customers I've got time to play with my laptop.
So I've got arch-linux installed with DB2 9.5.0 express-C running. I've got VirtualBox installed with OS/2 as client O.S. (old-time-sake) and DB2/2 V7.2 running in that box. Recently I've discovered how to set-up port-forewarding so now I can TELNET from my linux host to my OS/2 client (big deal) .
So why not DB2? The network part is no problem, port 50.005 is routed to 50.000 in my OS/2 box and TCPIP communication is enabled. On the linux host the tcpip node and database is catalogued... So everything should work!....But
[$]> db2 connect to vWsamp user XXX
Enter current password for XXX:
SQL5048N The release level of the database client is not supported by the
release level of the database server.
Almost there, stumbled in sight of the finish... I'm out of tricks. Anyone a bright idea?
