    Unanswered: Want to gain DB2 on AIX Hands on Experience

    Hi,

    I want to gain some hands-on experience on "DB2 on AIX" like installing and administration. Is it possible to download AIX and install on my intel based laptop. I know I can always download DB2 LUW trial version or DB Express-C. I am more interested on "DB2 on AIX" setup.


    Thanks,
    - G's

    You need the correct hardware to run AIX:

    Just set up korn shell as the defaut shell for you userid, and I doubt you will notice any differences from a DBA perspective.
