    Unanswered: DB2 Express image for cloning workstations

    Hello All,

    I just created a Win 7 workstation in VM for one of our offices. An application will use IBM DB2 Express v 9.7.200.358.

    I need to create one for every office and thus, clone this image as a base so I can easily create the vm machines for 50 plus offices. I was told by our vendor that I couldn't do it becasue of DB2 Express. Normally, I could just change the IP, MAC, and a few other configuration changes then I'm good to go. Is this possible with DB2 Express? Anyone done this? If So, what would I have to do?

    Thanks,

    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    This suggests that some editions of Windows 7 are supported, except of course that Express-C is only has "community" support and no official support from IBM. I am not sure if OP meant DB2 Express or DB2 Express-C, since many people get them confused.
