    Unanswered: DB2 and Linux

    I am using DB2 on Linux, and need to register a ODBC driver

    In Windows, I simply go to the Configuration Assistant, double click on the table name, click on the Data source name, click on Register the database for CLI/ODBC, and hit FINISH

    I do not understand how to perform this function in Linux, can someone tell me what I need to execute from Linux

    Is there an equivalent to the Configuration GUI in the Linux environment, and if so , how do you get to it ?

    Thanks

    It depends on your desktop environment. KDE here ..

    Kcontrolcenter and ODBCConfig - Administration - KDE-Forum.org

    If you have XWindows configured, and have installed db2 client tools, try using the client config tool. when you catalog a database, you have the option to say 'Register this as a ODBC datasource'. (this option shows up on windows)

    1> How can I find a doc for how to register a table in ODBC for GNOME ?

    2> Does the Client get installed when you install the Server ?

    1) use the Configuration Assistant (from command line as instance owner: db2ca)

    2) Yes.
