    Unanswered: db2 cli driver


    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?

    Why do you think you need to use db2cli? Can't you just connect with the command line processor, db2?

    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.
