    Unanswered: Data Studio / InfoSphere Optim - adding db connection

    Is it possible to add a new db connection in Data Studio / InfoSphere Optim xxx tool without knowing the db name, hostname, port ... As per Figure 5 here, this info is required in Data Studio: Migrating from DB2 Control Center to IBM Data Studio


    I guess what I'm asking is if Data Studio / InfoSphere can use something similar to "DB2 Discovery" to search the network and display a list of instances/databases found on each server. If this functionality exists, is there a way to configure DB2 server to not allow to be "discovered"?

    I don't know the answer to the first question, but yes you can configure DB2 instances and databases to disable discover feature.

    Instances/databases are enabled to be discovered (discover_inst/discover_db config parameters are set to enable), but DAS doesn't exist, so the instances/databases can't be discovered using the old GUI tools (ie. Control Center, Config Assistance). I'm wondering if the new GUI tools (DS, Optim, etc...) are still able to see instances/databases even if DAS is not available?

    It is possible for a software vendor to do that without DAS (if discover is enabled), but I don't know if they did it.
