my DB: db2V9.5 fp6, Aix 5.3
I have a installed IBM Data Server Driver for ODBC and CLI on a serverA ,
i want to test the database connectivity to a database sitting on ServerB using db2cli. i have my db2cli.ini file initialized with the serverB database details
in V9.7 i saw this command and was able to do a sample test connection.
./db2cli -validate -database <dbname> -connect -user <username> -passwd <passwd>
but the db2cli command in V9.5 info center does not seem to have any info regarding the database connection.
does any one know how do i test sample connection using db2cli command in V9.5?
This is just a CLI and ODBC driver installion and not a Data server Client or Runtime client. we don't have db2 installed or instance created.
the advantage of using this driver is there is no maintenance of db2 instance.
