Video Available for Step by Step with IBM Data Server / DB2 Driver Setup on Windows

26 May

One of the most common interactions I have with customers is around our best practices with client packages – what sets of drivers to install, especially on Windows client platforms. For most of our enterprise customers, be it LUW or DB2 connect for DB2 for z/OS or IBM i; the best practice is to use the IBM Data Server Driver Package (ds driver), and have the catalog info and driver properties in the db2dsdriver.cfg file.

Starting back in V9.7 we created a step by step “validate page” to help get folks going with both the ds driver, as well as the dsdriver.cfg file. This has proven to be one of the most popular pages in our info center, and I am please to announce that we have taken this one step further and now have a video walk through available:

For those interested, the latest step by step validate page is here:

I am interested in any feedback about this video, or anything else we can do to improve up and running with our drivers.

Brent.
