    There are no "db2 users". All user authentication happens externally (at the OS level, in LDAP, etc.) If you don't have the user defined externally, you will not be able to connect to a DB2 database as that user.
    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    To add to Nick: reset the password of the user defined on the OS-level. If you are using a different security plugin, it actually depends on the plugin.
