    Unanswered: DB2 Remote Alias

    We have DB2 databases listed on z/OS. We want to work with aliases in DB2 LUW, but physical databases resides on z/OS. Can we create alias to those in LUW DB2? Please advise. Does it work?

    Thank you.

    question is not very clear
    you can catalog the z-db on any station, as long as db2 connect is installed
    while doing the catalog you can give this db an alias name
    if db2 connect as gateway - other db2 luw clients can connect to this z-db by use of db2 connect as gateway
    all details are
    DB2 Connect

    Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.
